Even though the trail is relatively short, it’s a challenging hike because of its uphill course, especially from the waterfall until the end. Still, the Caledonia waterfall trail is one of the most beautiful hiking trails in Cyprus.


This hike can be enjoyed all year round as it’s set in a dense forest, along Kryos river. If you plan to hike this trail during the winter months, it’s advised to check the weather conditions before you go as the trail might be slippery.

The waterfall is definitely the highlight of the trail. The scenery is simply breath taking and enchanting, making it the perfect spot to rest and enjoy the surroundings. From there on the trail follows an uphill direction until it reaches to its ending point.

Caledonia waterfall is one of the highest waterfalls in Cyprus, with a height of 12 meters. The name of the waterfall was given by a Scottish expedition visiting the area in 1878. They were amazed by the resemblance of the waterfall with the natural landscapes of their country Scotland which was called Caledonia during the Roman period.
