This trip combines some of the best cultural heritage of Cyprus with excellent bird-watching at one of three top class bird-watching spots near Larnaca.
From Larnaca we ascend to stone-built Pano Lefkara village, the prime home of famous Lefkaritika lace, enjoying views of semi-mountainous Larnaca. On the way, there is the option to stop at UNESCO World Heritage Choirokitia Neolithic site. We explore the medieval village of Lefkara through some of its very narrow streets and may have the chance to pause for Cyprus coffee or refreshments.
On our way back from Pano Lefkara we usually stop at one of three main bird-watching sites near Larnaca, which are among the best in Cyprus (Larnaca Salt Lake, Sewerage Processing Pools, and Voroklini Lake).
