The charming mountain roads and winding natural trails of Troodos set the scene for the annual Sports and Fun Festival, which features two weekends of outdoor sporting activities, one in Platres and one in Troodos. The program includes hiking, archery, mountain biking, rock climbing and trail running, among other pursuits – and all in the fresh mountain air! The festival is also a great opportunity to explore the villages nestled within the mountain range, while the Forestry Department’s nature trails of varying difficulty levels are also worth the climb. The full program can be found on the Troodos Tourism Board’s website www.mytroodos.com closer to the date.
