What to expect

There's only one way to explore Cyprus's last wilderness – in a 4x4 vehicle. This off-road adventure will take you on a bumpy ride through the rugged Akamas peninsula. You'll get to see the wildlife-rich Avakas Gorge and Lara Bay, visit Port Latchi and the mythical Baths of Aphrodite. An action-packed day.

Home to more than 160 species of birds and almost 40 species of plants, the entire peninsula is a national park. There are no main roads – just dirt tracks and pathways. The fun kicks off with a drive to the giant limestone walls of the Avakas Gorge. Next up is Lara Bay. This very remote spot – even by Akamas peninsula standards – is home to a breeding station for protected green turtles.

It's time to rev up the engine again for a trip to Port Latchi and a stop for lunch. In the afternoon, visit the Baths of Aphrodite. Legend has it that the Greek goddess of love used to bathe here with her lover, Adonis. Legend also has it that the waters have magical rejuvenating properties.
