During winter and spring months (January – early May), the vast rolling landscapes  that comprise the river valley areas of Cyprus offer the off-the-beaten-track explorer rich rewards in the form of “psycadelic fields” carpeted with anemones, asphodels, poppies, orchids (some types endemic to the island), and many other plant species. This unique, magic itinerary, offered only during limited times of the year, brings you into contact with what can only be described as the awe-inspiring Flower Power of Cyprus. We bring you nearby these special places, but some walking is necessary to truly experience and respect the fragile environments and reduce negative impact. Note: Picking of any flowers is a big “no-no” and will be strictly prohibited. Bring your camera, leave the scissors at home.
