Saturday May 18th – Cape Aspro (Pissouri)

Join us on this educational hike at Cape Aspro (17:00 – 20:00). We will walk along one of the most impressive coastlines of the island, where the wild beauty of the white rocks creates a stunning contrast with the deep blue sea! We will of course take a break at a viewpoint to enjoy the unique sunset of this scenic route. During the hike, members of our team will share interesting information about the importance of the flora and fauna of the area, which is part of the Natura 2000 network.

Registration is required.

Saturday May 25th – Pissouri

From 10:00 until 19:30, you will be able to participate in a number of activities, at the village square or at nearby locations. The activities include:


The “Natura 2000” European Ecological Network is a wide European network of protected natural areas for species of flora, fauna, birds and habitats. Apart from protecting nature and biodiversity, the Natura 2000 network offers us great benefits. For example, the network helps mitigate climate change, protects us from natural disasters, contributes to food security, offers us purified water, attracts visitors thus contributing to the support of regional economies, while at the same time supports full time jobs.

The Pandoteira project deals with the management of the Natura 2000 network in Cyprus, with the purpose of making the network more effective and functional, as well as sustainable. The project is co-funded by the EU’s LIFE Programme, it is coordinated by the Department of Environment and has 13 other associated beneficiaries from Public Bodies, Universities, NGOs and private companies.
