We went around Cyprus by car in just 7 days and did most of the top hikes. It is very beautiful in springtime because everything is green and all the flowers blossom. Maybe this small guide is interesting for you if you are planning a self-guided trip to Cyprus. We don’t like to book through a travel agency because then we are not free to do what we want. One big surprise for me was that I actually liked the northern part (“occupied” by Turkey) more. Read on to see why, our itinerary and the hikes we did.
