Highlights of the Besparmak Trail

This is a specially tailored package where we have taken the best bits of the 260 km trail and created an 8 day tour with 6 days of walking. You will explore crusader’s castles: St Hilarion and Kantara, charming village of Bellapais and ancient mosaics, monasteries and churches tucked away in forests with plenty of exercise in between to keep you fit. The hike starts at Cape Korucam in the west of the island and makes it’s way along the Kyrenia mountain range to Cape Zafer, the easternmost point of the island and the end of the whole trail, which lies approx. 250 km away. The highly varied trail first goes along the shore and then climbs to the low western ridge of the Beşparmak Mountains.
