The Troodos Ice Festival

Published 22nd of January, 2022

Every year in the Troodos Mountains, Mother Nature holds an ice festival. If you visit the area to go skiing or to throw a snowball at your wife, be sure to set aside some time to go off-piste and marvel at some of the exhibits on display.

Natural Christmas Decorations


If you can tear your eyes away from the ski slopes for a minute, this is the kind of display you can see. There will be a lot more pictures like this in this blog, but they don't lend themselves to much commentary. So first we will have a bit of information on Troodos Square and the condition of the roads.

More Snow!


I wrote about Troodos a few weeks ago. Yesterday (21st January) I returned with my wife and daughter, and there was a lot more snow.

Troodos Square Icicles


We set off early on Friday morning, and arrived at Troodos Square in good time. We wanted to get to the ski slopes as soon as possible, so didn't stop here. However, Alex did manage to take some shots on our way through. I loved these icicles.

Snow Plough


The roads are well maintained. We passed a few snough ploughs along the way. We also made a film of the conditions so you can judge for yourself whether you want to visit, for instance, tomorrow.

Now A Major FIlm

One thing I will say though, is if you do go tomorrow, go early. And check the news for latest information on roads. As I write this it is raining in Polemi, so it could well be snowing in the mountains.
