A chance to explore the rustic side of Cyprus. On this excursion, you'll get to discover the remote Xeros valley on the back of a donkey. You'll pass through picturesque orange groves and quaint villages as you and your trusted donkey amble to the historic Sinti Monastery. Plus you'll also taste local specialities and enjoy a performance of traditional music and dancing.
Your laidback adventure kicks off at Argonaftis donkey farm in Kelokedara. Here, you'll experience Cypriot hospitality at its best. Savour local favourites, including haloumi cheese and – if you're brave enough – zivania firewater.
After instruction, you'll hop on to your donkey and head slowly – or ‘siga, siga' as the locals say – up the Xeros valley to the 16th century Sinti Monastery. The complex fell into disrepair and abandonment but is back to its original best after an award-winning restoration. Then, back at the farm, your evening ends with a barbecue meal with wine and traditional music and dancing.
