Waterfalls & Dams
Hidden away in the deep forest of the Troodos mountain area, are picturesque wonders of nature. Filled with natural river networks, during winter months, rain transforms into rivers and dams fill with water. Explore the forest and admire cascading waters at one of the waterfalls, walk along the rivers and enjoy the peaceful sound of streaming water and witness the beauty of dams filled with 17 species of fish. Take the opportunity to fish at one of the six dams: Kafizes dam – Kalopanagiotis dam – Palaichori dam – Prodromos dam – Xyliatos dam – Asprokremmos dam. Due to the long, dry summers the island’s water supply relies on the dams and when the winter rain overflows them, a picturesque spectacle is devised.
For fishing you need to get a special permit to be able to fish.
Around three thousand are fishing enthusiasts in our watercourses, who each year obtain a permit from the Department of Fisheries. Amateur fishermen are particularly interested in dams where there are mostly trout.
Licenses and terms
The fishing licenses are issued by the headquarters, as well as by the District Offices of the Fisheries Department. The process of obtaining a fishing license is simple, as long as the interested party presents his complete details and pays the corresponding fee.
