My favourite hiking trips in nature is where the journey begins with an equally beautiful overland 4x4 drive. Exploring unspoilt nature away from the crowds is so much more exciting than hiking the overcrowded tourist hot spots. Rejuvenation Hiking is all about reconnecting with nature.
âFilming on this beautiful December morning, the sun is hot creating a wonderful morning dew following the evening's cool mountain air.
Time to get ready for my hike. Just a short 8km route so Iâll take my favourite compact backpack from Mil-Tec. I find Mil-Tec backpacks ideal for our hot, dusty and rugged terrain with lots of sharp rocky edges and prickly bushes. â
This beautiful green area with amazing views of hills and mountains in the distance will be my starting point today. â
Beautiful pink rock-roses on the trails this time of the year
This beautiful old olive tree must be hundreds of years old, still offering nutritional olives to humans as it has done for many generations.
Something amazing about seeing wild mushrooms surface above ground.
Amazing olives trees are abundant in this whole area, check out my other videos on harvesting and curing olives.
I love the shape of wild fennel plants
Wild blackberries, not quite ripe for picking, Iâll check on these in a few weeks
The second most common tree after the olive trees in this area are pine trees. In the hot summer months you can hear the pine cones popping as they open and sprinkle seeds to the ground to produce more trees. How wonderful nature is.
Lots of prickly pear cactus trees grow in this area too. When in season the fruit they produce is really delicious but it's quite a skill to gather and prepare them due to the tiny needles that cover them.
With my hike over, I decided to make some hot tea. My favourite organic Yogi Tea is called Christmas tea. A wonderful blend of herbs and spices like cinnamon, orange, vanilla and star anise. Then some cashew nuts and dried fruitâ¦and thenâ¦.enjoying the view and the happiest feelings that nature always gives in abundance.
The area that I hiked today is where the village called Vasa Kellakiou is located in Limassol Cyprus.

Proven health benefits of spending time in nature. The easy option and motivation is to join a Rejuvenation Hiking Tour in Limassol Cyprus.
Polar Bottle makes these fantastic lightweight, triple insulated, BPA free, handheld water bottles in various sizes that are ideal for hiking in the Limassol mountains. Cost of the 709 ml size is around €18 on Amazon and worth every scent.
I absolutely love these handheld water bottles, I find this design so incredibly comfortable to hold. These shaped cuts out allow the minimum amount of grip to keep the bottle secure in your hand.
Polar Bottle is not just another plastic sports water bottle, firstly it’s ingeniously triple insulated with an internal reflective foil as the second barrier to keeping your water cool for many hours of summer hiking in Cyprus. From start to finish of my hikes, I know my water will be cool and delicious.
I often use High5 electrolyte tablets during the summer. It's really convenient to drop one or two of the electrolyte tablets into the bottle for my longer hiking routes.
Polar Bottles are easy to squeeze when you want to drink and easy to shut off the valve during your run with no leaking. I love the versatility of these durable bottles, perfect for hiking, running and cycling.
Maintaining a Polar Bottle is a simple rinse and wash under the tap with a drop of dishwashing liquid and storing the Polar Bottle in your freezer will stop any mould plus the bottle will also be nice and cool for your next hiking adventure,
These bottles may seem a little expensive compared to the regular plastic sports water bottles that you see everywhere in sports shops, but really there is no comparison in my experience. I’ve been using Polar Bottles for more than 10 years now, it’s the only bottle I’ve found comfortable to hold, keeps the water cool, is silent during hiking with no noisy sloshing sound, easy to wash and keep hygienically clean and lasts for many years before needing replacing.
I can highly recommend the Polar bottle as a tough and versatile water bottle for hiking in Cyprus. Available in various sizes, I'd highly recommend the 24oz size which is 709ml.

Using the Garmin Instinct Solar as my everyday fitness tracker for hiking in the Limassol mountains, I really can’t fault this fantastic and very tough smartwatch.
It has one of the biggest and best always on displays of any smartwatch on the market today, getting the data I need at a glance during high intensity workouts and without having to touch the screen is for me, the most important feature of any fitness smartwatch.
The Garmin Instinct Solar has an incredible battery life boosted by a solar charging lens. I typically use my Garmin Instinct Solar in GPS mode for several hours per day, 7 days per week. I have all the battery killing apps running like pulse ox, heart rate monitor, GPS and I wear the watch at night for sleep tracking and I still get 7 to 10 days before having to charge the watch.
It feels light and comfortable on the wrist and the long strap allows the space I need for various sports clothing.
The watch is built to U.S. military standard 810 for thermal, shock and 100m water resistance, and the fibre-reinforced polymer can take quite a beating. I've bashed the watch many times on hard rock surfaces and still not a dent on scratch to be seen. I also fitted an aftermarket 9H screen protector which I’ve been really pleased with, it had no negative effect on the solar charging lens.
The large always-on 23mm x 23mm monochrome memory-in-pixel display has been a pleasure to use during intense outdoor workouts under bright sunlight. Yes AMOLED touch screens do look really cool, like on the new Venu 2 which is around the same price as the Garmin Instinct Solar, but when I’m working out under intense sunlight with sunglasses on, sweat in my eyes and constantly moving with an elevated heart rate, I really don’t want is to be trying to focus and deal with a touch screen display.
Garmin Instinct Solar for me has the best always on display with no fiddly touchscreen, just 5 large buttons that are intuitive to use. And let’s not forget this fantastic 32mm wide PowerGlass is covered with advanced solar charging technology giving the watch an incredible battery life. When I have busy days with client training sessions, I can easily rack up 7 hours plus of constant GPS usage and still I’m getting 7 days plus before having to charge the watch.
And with its fibre-reinforced polymer case built to military standard 810, 100m water resistance and super light at only 53g. I think the Garmin Instinct Solar offers the best screen display and best rugged build quality of any fitness tracking smartwatch at the mid level price range. Amazon link to where I purchased mine from at the lowest price.
Another great feature with the Garmin Instinct Solar lens is there are now many 3rd party sellers of screen protectors which I highly recommend you get, the last thing you want is to scratch the glass and ruin the look of your watch. The one I’m using is a 9H tempered glass and fits beautifully, it completely disappears once fitted and has no negative effect on the solar charging.
