Located in the west of Cyprus the Akamas Peninsula is possibly the most picturesque corner of the island. Covering approximately 230 square kilometers, this is where you will find wild landscape, amazing natural beauty, deep gorges, and wide sandy bays. This wild uninhabited region has spectacular landscapes and has become a habitat for several species of flora and fauna unique to the Mediterranean.

fast downhill, technical rocky sections & twin track cross-county trails.
It's our aim to promote the Akamas Peninsula as the place to explore as a mountain bike enthusiast, and at the same time promote local tourism, village hotels, restaurants, tavernas, winery's and the cultural heritage.
Our guided tours start from the village of Ineia at over 650m above sea level, with views of St George's Bay right over to Lara Bay, it's a good starting point to ride the numerous twin track trails that run through the Peninsula.
The trails have a lot to offer even to the most experienced riders,range in grade from moderate to difficult, from half a day to full days ride, with time for photos and breaks. The best trails start with a down hill decent from 650m down to sea level. With a maximum group size of 8, each days ride is based on the groups skills and fitness levels.
