The circular Artemis nature trail is one of the most beautiful trails in Troodos for every season. 

Its starting point is located 300 meters from where the road to Chionistra crosses with the Troodos - Prodromos road, at an altitude of 1850 meters. The trail is 7km long and relatively easy to trek, making it suitable for the whole family. 

As you make your way across the trail and through the black pine forest, you will find 2 ancient trees that are approximately 500 years old, as well as several rocky spots that offer impressive views (the village of Prodromos and the Berengaria Hotel are visible from there).

There is also a point of historical interest in the area called 'Ta Teisia tis Palias Horas,' where one can see the ruins of old Venetian fortifications (dating back to 1571 AD) against the Ottomans.
