Northern Cyprus is a country we know well as our sister company, Pioneer Media, has been offering filming support in that location for quite a while now. It was only natural that we start running a tour there. Particularly now that Cyprus has opened its borders to 65 nationalities who have received a Covid-19 vaccination.
Whilst it is largely known for being a vacation resort for British and European holidaymakers, following the Turkish invasion of 1974, the Mediterranean island of Cyprus was ravaged by war before being cut in half with a UN-designated buffer zone in the middle. This zone incorporated towns, cities and airports making them abandoned ghost settlements to this day.
On our divided Cyprus tour we explore the Turkish Cypriot controlled side of the island that few people see. Ghost cities, military standoffs, mansions owned by gun smugglers, stunning beaches, and world-class ancient sites with next to no other tourists.
Our journey begins on the south side of the island and is easily reachable with a variety of budget airlines. We then cross the border into Northern Cyprus and thoroughly explore this section of the island. We’ll be sleeping in hotels and on the island’s gorgeous beaches as we explore the dark and fascinating history of this country.
