Special daily excursions

Typically, once a week when there are not in one of our expedition data (see below), we tour the country. We usually visit locations like Larnaca, Agia Napa, Nicosia, and more. On those days, we wake time, schedule, and return vary according to the site visited.


The trip and visits typically include touring as well as connecting with inspirational people and stories.
