What you'll do

Halloumi Heaven - Small Group Cheese-Making & Villages Food Tour...

A guide from our team will pick you up from a location of your choice and you’ll be driven into the Troodos mountain countryside to the house of a local village lady to learn the traditional technique of halloumi and anari cheese making. The activity will start at the farm of our host where participants can learn how to milk the animals (goats & sheep) to collect their very own fresh milk. A tour of the cheese-making premises will follow where you'll be put to work to make your fresh halloumi! This hands-on workshop ends with a traditional sit-down experience where you'll enjoy a delicious brunch which will include the cheeses made plus lots more.

We'll then continue our journey into the scenic mountain villages to visit a honey producer and a local man making products with donkey milk. Part of our touring will be a visit to Lefkara village where you’ll see the local ladies making the famous Cyprus lace plus time to shop & explore.

Any applicable entrance fees, tasting fees, door-to-door transport, cheese-making class, coffees, traditional brunch and drinks are all included in the tour price.

If you'd like to do this tour but it's not available on the date and time of your choice - just message and depending on availability, we'll add it to the calendar.

Well organised and well thought trip. We were shown little gems in the mountain of Cyprus! From donkey feeding to halloumi making! We visited farm, organic bee hives and the wonderful village of Lefkara! Truly recommend! Theodora was a lovely company!
