Never ones to rest on their laurels, with their latest ‘Virtual Walks’ series, travel group Idyllic Cyprus offer us a new, peripatetic perspective of our island.
In this video, we head into the heart of the Caledonia nature trail to experience its winding, tangled freshness.
Running between Troodos square and the Psilo Dendro trout farm north of Platres village, the Caledonia nature trail passes through a thickly forested area, following the course of the Kryos River, and passing by the trail’s famous, namesake waterfall.
Hiking boots are strongly recommended for crossing the river, especially in wet weather, or following snow, as the waterfall’s rocks can be very slippery.
And if you’re wondering about the waterfall’s name, it comes courtesy of a Scottish expedition visiting the Platres region in 1878; given the resemblance of the area to their homeland’s own terrain, the group named the falls ‘Caledonia’ – an ancient Latin reference for Scotland.
