Crossing over into the North we start out tour at the foot of the Pentadaktylos Mountain range.

This magnificent Byzantine castle is over 1000 years old and we have free time explore the ruins.
We then continue our journey through some beautiful countryside into the Karpasia Peninsula where we are guaranteed to find friendly wild donkeys and mountain goats along our way.
We will make a short stop is made at the ancient tomb and catacomb of Ayios Therisos before continuing to the very end of the cape and the Monastery of Apostolos Andreas.
