Mountain Guide- Cyprus
I am an IFMGA mountain guide living in Cyprus. I have a passion for exploring the mountains since I was child. Kyperounda, the town where I was born and raised, was my first playground, the place where I started practising different outdoor activities.
First I learnt skiing. Then, I started training and taking part in races and competitions, traveling extensively in Europe. As I am very curious, I kept trying all kinds of sports until I discovered climbing and all its exciting possibilities.
I also developed both my academic and my practical skills in the university, where I studied Outdoor Studies and Sport Science. During that time, I obtained qualifications as a Mountain Leader and a Climber.
Teaching other people is one of the things I like the most. I find a deep joy in helping others to enjoy the mountains as much as I do.
The experience of all these years as well as my technical skills, have taken me closer to my goal: becoming an IFMGA mountain guide.
We were expecting to be taken somewhere that we could not have gone ourselves. One of the members of our group was a very experienced skier and we did not need to pay to have a guide take us to ski somewhere we could have skied on our own without paying.
We had an amazing day skiing the Vallée Blanche. Kyriakos was very patient with my 14 year old son, especially in the first treacherous crampon section. He kept us at a comfortable pace with frequent breaks and picture opportunities. The pics and videos he took were also great.
Kyriakos was an excellent guide for our descent of Vallee Blanche! He was accommodating toward what we were looking for in our tour. He was very knowledgeable about the surrounding alps area and enthusiastically shared that knowledge. He quickly assessed our abilities and let us go at an appropriate pace. I would recommend Kyriakos for any trip in the area.
A great experience! My guide was a humble PROFESSIONAL! All and all nice guy, kept me safe, explained everything well on what we were going to do where to go on the route. Had a great time even tho it was a bit over my "level". I would recommend using this company and your guide. 5/5.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures.
