Famagusta tourism board has decided to revive its "Endless Sun" programme aiming to offer tourists a unique experience during their stay on the island and particularly in Ayia Napa and Protaras.
Ayia Napa Mayor Yiannis Kourousos said the decision was taken during a meeting earlier this week.
"The specific programme started in 1987 in Ayia Napa and Protaras and includes various activities which enrich tourists' experiences in the winter months."
The free Famagusta tourism board will organise the project in cooperation with the area's communities.
Buses will collect tourists from their hotels and take them to the fields to pick strawberries and olives and harvest potatoes. There will also be the opportunity to learn how to make Halloumi cheese and Cyprus' special soup, "trachanas".
"This pioneering project ended in 2007 but as our top priority is to tackle seasonality the Famagusta tourism board decided to revive it," Karousos said.
"The programme will be ready by mid February and will be implemented in association with the local communities in an aim to offer experiences to tourists," he added.
The Famagusta tourism board is in contact with all the communities in the area to explore their participation in the programme.
"We wish to enrich the programme as much as possible so that we can succeed as much as possible," the mayor said.
"Our aim is for tourists to leave our region and take with them unique experiences difficult to find anywhere apart from the usual souvenirs and memories they take back home with them," he added.
