The Deputy Ministry of Tourism has recently published a new brochure on the Cyprus “European long distance Path E4” which is available in English and Greek and is distributed free of charge.
The European long distance path E4 was extended to Cyprus following a proposal by the Greek Ramblers Association to the European Ramblers Association, The main partners in Cyprus are the Deputy Ministry of Tourism and the Forestry Department.
The Cyprus section of the E4 Path with a total length of 539 kms connects Larnaka and Pafos international airports. Along the route, it traverses Troodos mountain range, Akamas peninsula and long stretches of cypriot rural areas, along regions of enhanced natural beauty and areas of high ecological, historic, archaeological, cultural and scientific value.
The information given in the brochure is a general outline, to assist ramblers identify the path route. Ramblers are strongly advised to research further any path section(s) to be attempted, with particular emphasis in the availability and proximity of overnight licensed accommodation establishments, especially in remote mountain and rural areas.
It should be stressed that the route by no means represents all that Cyprus has to offer the rambler. It is primarily designed as cross-country route, and as such is inevitably selective, missing out some fine landscapes and/or cultural sites. It does however provide a sampler of the scenic and cultural variety that is Cyprus.
