Introduction to Xeros Potamos Valley & Vouni Panagias Walk (private from Paphos)
Phivos Ioannides, who would be guiding the trip and the walk, is a world traveller with extensive studies, wide business and other experiences. He is involved for many years in the sector of authentic ecotourism in Cyprus and is the author of a relevant guide book (with the title 'Exploring Authentic Cyprus'). He is a Greek Cypriot and specialises on guided walking trips.
Our usual transportation (Citroen C8 MPV) can take upto six adult passengers and a driver. We keep groups small, in order to offer a more personalised service.
We walk in Xeros Potamos Valley and visit watermill(s), and possibly Panagia tou Sinti monastery.
At Vouni Panagias we walk through vineyards (which change tremendously through the seasons) and enjoy excellent vistas towards Ezousa Valley, Paphos Forest, Kannaviou dam, Xeros Potamos Valley and even Akamas and Olympus peak on Troodos.Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this productStop At:
Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery, Main Road through village, Pano Panayia Cyprus
A stop at this historic, 1,000 year old monastery can make for a brief break before the start of the walk proper, at Vouni Panayias peak, which starts at Pano Panayia village, just a couple of km down the road.
We expect that travellers would spend about three hours on the walk (and the monastery)
Duration: 3 hoursStop At:
Panagia of Sintis, Paphos Cyprus
This is one of the 'best' attractions on the island, combining a medieval monastery with a natural environment away from modern settlements. As a rule we walk to the monastery (crossing the stream on going and returning).
