Sparti Adventure Park

We have driven past Sparti Adventure Park in previous visits to Paphos Forest and the Troodos. However, we normally have another destination in mind, so have never paid it a visit until now. Last sunday, some Cypriot friends invited us along and we jumped at the chance. It is a fair drive from Paphos, but the scenery along the way is beautiful, and you will be driving on regular roads, so any rental car will be fine. We cut through Paphos Forest in our 4x4, but that is the subject of another blog!

Entrance Sign

There are numerous ways to get here from Paphos. You can view a map here.

Next to the Park...

Once you have parked in the relatively small, but free, carpark, you walk past the local hospital to get to the main entrance. This was a little unnerving!

Park Map

This didn't make much sense to us when we first looked at it. The most important thing to note is the white platform in the middle. Most of the adventures start there. I was there strictly to supervise the children, and it was free for me to enter. We bought the kids €25 tickets, which gave them access to the blue, green and yellow routes. It took them three hours to finish these routes, so we got good value for money.

Reception

To the left of the reception area are some shaded picnic tables. Most of the parents in our group waited here for the duration of the visit. You can bring your own picnic, or buy food from the kiosk.

House Rules

Make sure everybody in your party familiarises themselves with these rules. Personally I would also add "Don't stand in the path of a zipwire track."

Venetian Bridges: Skarfos

We have been meaning to look at Venetian Bridges for some time, so today I thought I would start with Skarfos, as this is easily accessible and is the Western-most Venetian Bridge that I am aware of. Situated just off the road to Simou from the B7, it may not be the most spectacular bridge Cyprus has to offer, but there are enough other attractions nearby to make it worth your journey, as you shall see...

What Are These Mystery Tags?

I am taking a break from my normal blogs to pose a question. On my travels throughout Cyprus, while I have been photographing interesting locations for blogs, I have often stumbled across some mysterious tags. They consist of a date, and an initial or two. I have photographed them as I explored, but have never included the photos in a blog because it doesn't really fit in with the blog's theme. However, I have now amassed sufficient tag pictures for them to warrant a blog in their own right. And my question to you is simple; why are they there?

Vretsia Tavern Revisited

A few months ago, I wrote a blog about the abandoned village of Vretsia. I also did a supplementary blog about Vretsia Taven which, until last summer had still been open seasonally, for hunters and the like. In that blog, I reported that it had obviously had a nasty fire, as it was very badly burned. Well yesterday we were giving some guests a tour of the area, and we popped in to see the tavern. I was pleasantly surprised with what I found...
