Trail
“The Avakas Gorge Trail is located in the homonymous gorge, within Pegeia state forest with the end of the trail located inside the gorge. It follows the course of the Avgas River, from where the gorge gets its name and resulted from constant erosive activity on the erodible, sloping limestone rocks composed of loams, chalks, reef and grain limestone and bentonitic clays. The gorge is also a Natura 2000 area. The trail firstly follows a dirt road (closed to private vehicles) through an open valley, then takes you into the gorge. In its last section, the trail is in the stream, in which water usually flows throughout the year. The route through the gorge is characterized by thick vegetation and a particularly attractive, shady and moist environment.”

“Visit one of the wineries of the region and try or buy local wines. Cyprus has the second oldest wine history after the Persians. Try the local Commandaria (sweet port-like wine) and Zivania if you like strong spirits.”

“ This is called 'small Philippos', just up the main Peyia road behind the town Church...even in walking distance if you don't mind to walk up the hill. On the bright side, just rolling down after your shopping. ”
