What you'll do

You'll be picked up from your accommodation and driven into the Troodos mountain countryside to a small village cheese-making workshop where we'll learn the traditional technique of halloumi and anari cheese making. We'll start with an introduction to the day over a traditional Cyprus coffe and then a tour of the cheese-making premises will follow where you'll be put to work to make your fresh halloumi cheese! This hands-on workshop ends with a traditional sit-down experience where you'll enjoy a delicious brunch which will include the cheeses made plus lots more.

We'll then continue our journey into the scenic mountain villages to visit a honey producer, winery (optional) and a local spot making products with donkey milk. Part of our touring will be a visit to Lefkara village where you’ll see the local ladies making the famous Cyprus lace plus time to shop & explore.
