A trip to Paphos in the autumn is particularly special as the autumn colours swathe the area and add an extra dimension to those gorgeous panoramic views.
Paphos is such a beautiful area, it’s stunning at any time of year. The scenery is eternally breathtaking and with each season you can appreciate new scenes and views. While most visitors head to Paphos in the summer months, in the traditional tourist season, with Paphos enjoying year-round sunshine and pleasant temperatures, it’s also a destination you can visit all year round. A trip to Paphos in the autumn is particularly special as the autumn colours swathe the area and add an extra dimension to those gorgeous panoramic views. In addition, while it’s still warm enough for a dip in the sea, the scorching temperatures of the summer months are gone and so getting out and about on foot or by bicycle is much more pleasant. Autumn is the perfect season for fully exploring all that Paphos has to offer and getting in tune with the autumnal vibe. Here are some great ideas for amazing things to do in the Paphos area in autumn…
Hiking in the Avakas Gorge
The temperatures in autumn are ideal for hiking, and the Avakas Gorge is a hike with a difference. Created over thousands of years, by a stream running through limestone, this natural feature is out of this world. On the hour-long hike, you’ll discover fascinating rock formations, wildlife and rare plants.
Exploring the wine villages of Paphos
Paphos is famed for its vineyards, and several quaint villages are linked to wine production in Paphos. Each village is unique and all are well worth visiting. Explore the traditional streets, visit ancient churches, and of course, sample the local wine and delicacies. Noteworthy wine destinations with quaint wineries include the villages of Lemona, Statos – Agios Fotios, Kathikas and Stroumpi.
Discovering fascinating archaeological sites
Paphos is a wonderful destination for anyone with an interest in history or archaeology. Cyprus has a fascinating history, and evidence of this has been preserved in several sites that you can visit. In the autumn months, you’ll get the very best experience as the crowd levels fall and you can take your time exploring sites such as the Tomb of the Kings and the Paphos medieval castle.
