Besparmak Mountain Trail

Also known as The Kyrenia Mountain Trail, this is the official long walking trail of North Cyprus and a unique means of exploring the island.

Set as 18 stages over 260 km, this momentous trail stretches from the West Coast Cape Kormakitis to Cape Zafer on the very tip of the Karpaz Peninsula in the north-east of the island, known for its golden beaches and wild asses. 

Walk along the spine of the mountains and enjoy breath-taking views right across NCY and the Mediterranean. Every turn will reveal new landscapes, wonderous nature and wildlife as well as the hidden treasures of the island – stunning crusader castles, secret hidden chapels, and much more to explore.  

As you pass through quaint rural villages, you will encounter Cypriot hospitality hands on and meet diverse cultures. 

Sometimes rugged and steep, some trails with rolling hills or shallow coastlines, the diverse Besparmak Mountain Trail embraces the NCY flora and fauna, offers great views, and courses over many attractions.
