Special excursions

Typically, once a week, we explore the country. We might visit coastal towns including Larnaca, Agia or Napa, or the capital city of Nicosia. We could tour an archaeological site or go for a hike. 


Excursions usually include touring as well as connecting with inspirational people and stories. Schedules on these days vary depending on the destination and activities.




Expeditions are three- to five-day trips in the outdoors. Expeditions include exploring the Troodos Mountains, Cavo Greko, and sailing in the Mediterranean. 

Each day's schedule is discussed and decided on by the group
and might include:

  • Morning meeting (group plan, day overview, personal goals review)

  • Breakfast and organizing for departure

  • Skills acquisition based on need

  • Hiking and navigation, challenges and processing

  • Lunch

  • Night base arrival

  • Shelter and food prep

  • Late dinner

  • Day summary meeting
