Mount Olympus Observation Point (Troodos)

* NOTE: All the tributes of All About Limassol (as the Official Guide of Limassol) aim to ONLY highlight the special aspects of this wonderful city, so that everyone can be aware of the exceptional options they offer. Under no circumstances do they have any promotional or nominal value, and they do not serve the interests of Companies, Municipalities, Organizations or Individuals.

On the way towards Prodromos village from Troodos Square, on the turn to Olympus mountain peak, an observation deck has been created by the Forestry Department near Mount Olympus, Cyprus' highest peak which boasts an altitude of 1,952 metres. This rest stop offers all visitors who stop there majestic views of the rolling green mountains of Troodos, as well as a panoramic view of the Bay of Morphou beyond.

The observation point comprises a wooden deck with glass railings that juts out above the valley below, appearing to float entirely on air. Road-weary travelers can take a break from the road here and simply breathe in the clean fresh air and marvel at the extraordinary scenery below. The landscape is equally spectacular in the winter, when it is covered by a thick blanket of white snow, as it is in the warmer months, when the pine forest offers up dense greenery as far as the eye can see.

This spot is also a stop on one of the circular cycle routes within the Troodos National Park, created under the framework of the ‘Geo-tourism in island geo-parks’ (GEO-IN) program, a cross-border cooperation program co-financed by the EU, Cyprus and Greece. As such, the observation point also acts as a rest area with bicycle repair and parking stations that are free to use for the public, and also allows for easy access by car.


Visitors will also revel in the serenity of the area, as the observation point is secluded from residential areas and the only sounds are those of nature.
