Kinousa Hills

Published 28th of December, 2020

In the past, the hills around Kinousa were heavily mined, for copper and other minerals. We've blogged about the area before, but today we are going to give you a drone's eye view. So strap yourself in, because the views are outstanding...

Kinousa Mine


Our first port of call is the old mine to the left of Kinousa Village. There is not a lot to see here in terms of urban exploring, but the surrounding countryside is very beautiful.

Incidentally, at the end of this blog are a film and little virtual tour of the area. Well worth hanging around for...



This looks like part of an old ore processing plant. Part of it is seems about to collapse. It is interesting to note, however, that the area is still ripe for mining, with new technologies. Stories regularly pop up in the press about the potential that Kinousa, and indeed most of the Troodos, has for mining exploitation. I just hope it is done in an environmentally friendly manner.

Distant Polis


There are laws in Cyprus for how high you can fly your drone. Fortunately, if you are on top of a big hill, you still have plenty of room to get some lovely landscapes.

Paphos Forest




We've showed you Argaka before. It will crop up again in our next road trip, too!

Limni Crystal Hunting

We've long been fans of hunting for exotic crystals in the countryside of Cyprus. Half the fun of it is finding an interesting geological location. But it can also be a lot of hard work.

They won't win any awards, but they are easy to find, and make a change from looking for shells on the beach...
