The Island of Cyprus offers cyclists (road and mountain) and Triathletes everything for an ideal European winter and spring training programme:

  • flat terrain along coast (up to 80 km in one direction)
  • rolling hills
  • long climbs
  • variety of mountain bike routes for all levels of skill and endurance
  • hotels in mountains for altitude training
  • fine-tune training  with local races, e.g. the annual UCI Cyprus Sunshine Cup mountain bike races where the top teams and athletes in the world usually compete
  • Teams that have trained in Cyprus in preparation for their forthcoming UCI competitions include MILRAM and ASTANA.


  • Triathletes: ideal open water training with immediate transition to flat or climbing cycling or running on very low or nil traffic terrain


  • Groups: large variety of recommended or custom made routes from 50 – 180 kms for riders of all levels. We work with Expert guides with local knowledge to accompany groups and offer advice on routes.    


We offer custom made packages– from all inclusive local services (transport, accommodation, bikes and guided tours) to specific (e.g. only guided tours).

 We can adapt the cycling programme to cater to Pro cyclists who require technical training or experienced amateurs or enthusiastic beginners. 



Allow us to give your team the best start to the season by training in a warmer climate.  A.L. Mantovani & Sons Ltd can arrange accommodation, transportation, booking of training fields and any other local services to maximize the benefit of your football team's training.

Many European football teams have for years been choosing Cyprus as their destination in preparation for the next season, as have women’s teams, school teams and special interest teams.

These include Ipswich Town FC (England, in Premier League 2002), AIK (Sweden), AC Sparta Praha (Czech Republic), Crystal Palace (England) and FC Dinamo Moscow (Russsia). 

They are a common sight on the island’s sandy beaches exercising those leg muscles and building up stamina.



Bring your group to Cyprus for a diving holiday. With water temperature ranging from 25 °C in the summer months to 16 °C in the winter, no tides or dangerous currents and the absence of plankton  inhibiting visibility, Cyprus is an ideal place to learn to dive or gain some advanced diving skills.

There are numerous exciting wrecks and doves are organized by several PADI diving centres at all coastal resorts.

 The most outstanding diving site is considered to be the wreck of the Zenobia,  a Swedish Ro-Ro 172m ferry carrying 108 articulated lorries which sank on its maiden voyage in 1980. This is rated one of the 10 best wreck dives in the world. Both the ferry and its cargo are still intact and the wreck is also home to schools of fish, including grouper, barracuda and tuna. The dive starts at 17m and bottoms at 43m.


There are many other wrecks dotted around Cyprus waters within easy reach from shore.

Elsewhere there are some spectacular caves and tunnels and a wide variety of marine life, such as moray eels, bream, grouper, turtles, soldier fish, fan worms and Spiro graphs.

Sea turtles can also be spotted thanks to a turtle conservation project that has increased their numbers around the island considerably.



Cyprus is the perfect destination for green bowling enthusiasts with its dry and sunny winters and relaxed atmosphere. 

Accommodation, booking of bowl rinks as well as games against active local clubs can be arranged for your group.

There are various 5* and 4*hotels as well as Tourist Villages providing Bowls facilities - the most extensive Bowls facilities are the 18 outdoor full size rinks (laid with Mastergreen® carpets) and an additional 12  indoor Short Mat rinks located between two  4* hotels in Paphos. The hotels have been chosen to host such prestigious events as the Premier League Bowls Tournament in 2010, the Atlantic Championships in 2011 and the World Champion of Champions in 2012.
