Dense forest of Black Pine – 9 Oct.

The peculiarity of the hike on Prodromos on 9 October is that hikers are rewarded by one of the prettiest forests on Cyprus, dense in tall Pinus nigra trees, only close to the far end. The large group of Strollers made up, once more, of persons from all ages and close to 10 nationalities, regulars as well as many first timers, walked the entire trail in good spirit, for this worthy treat at Stavroulia. There were many more pleasant moments, of course, on a most clear day, climaxing with lunch. Compliments to Anna, Yannis and Antonis for the photos. Join us on 17 Oct. at Spilia https://cyprus-strollers.org/activities-description/kourdali-spilia-17-oct/

Brilliant start to Season 15 – 3 Oct.

On 3 October the Cyprus Strollers kicked off season 15 on Artemis, in a most rewarding fashion. Turnout was very large; importantly there were hikers from all age groups, from elementary school upwards; some 10 different nationalities were represented; among us, regular Strollers, persons who came back after a long absence, as well as newcomers.

Participants enjoyed the two hikes, and had a cheerful time over the buffet lunch, with many exchanges lifting our spirits. Compliments to Maria, Nana and Sevag for taking photos. Join us on 9 Oct. on Prodromos https://cyprus-strollers.org/activities-description/prodromos-zoumi-stavroulia-9-oct/

Cyprus’ smallest waterfall – Almyrolivado 16 May

Compliments to Antonis for the photos.

Trout in the River – 24 April

No camera can beat the lenses of our eyes. Truly, hiking in nature offers rare views, which one can admire for the few moments they last, and by the time you take out a camera, they are gone. Such was the case with the several trout we spotted swimming upstream in Kryos Potamos on Saturday 24 April. As if their sighting was not sufficient to help Strollers through the week to come, we were entertained to some more pleasures during the hike at Pouziaris. To cap it all, we enjoyed one of the best meals this club has had in its history, at JR taverna in Trimiklini. Compliments to Antonis and Anna for the photos. Join us on our next outing, when the covid-19 restrictions are lifted.

Golden Atalanti – 18 April

In Greek mythology Atalanti was a virgin huntress who promised to marry the man who could win a running race against her; Atalanti lost to Hippomenes when she stopped to pick up three golden apples that he dropped in her path. The party on Sunday 18 April at Atalanti trail enjoyed much, much more; summer weather, dense forest, the singing of cuckoos, in a harmonious blend of members who came back after a long absence, regulars as well as first-timers. Compliments to Anna and Yiannis for the photos. Join us on 24 April at Platres https://cyprus-strollers.org/activities-description/kryos-potamos-caledonian-waterfall-pouziaris-24-april/

Impressionist impressions – 4 April

The stroll in Galata and Kakopetria on 4 April offered remarkable impressions, varying from the clear waters of Clarios river to the flowering fields, reminiscent of paintings by the impressionist Claude Monet.
