SINCE YOU ASKED...

What can we expect to do during Lavender Festival 2022 at Cyherbia in Cyprus?

This year we celebrate the 10th annual Lavender Festival at Cyherbia in Cyprus. Starting from the 11th until the 26th, this is an ongoing festival. During Lavender Festival you can:

  • Walk inside the lavender gardens. You can learn more about this fantastic aromatic and therapeutic herb during tours. Tours are every 30 minutes, all day.
  • Witness the extraction of lavender essential oil in the distillation room. The smell is truly intoxicating!
  • Try refreshments and sweets made with – you guessed it – lavender!
  • Take part in many different workshops (scroll down for the workshops schedule)
  • Educational & fun activities inside all areas of the park for children
  • Have lunch at the Botanicus Bistro! Open from 9am-7pm.

Are you open every day? Do we have to book to come? Are there workshops everyday?

We are open every day, from 9am – 20:00pm! You can come any day you choose, without booking. If you would like to participate during workshops, you can walk in and join us! Scroll down below to check the workshops schedule. That way, you can plan ahead and choose which day you would like to visit! There are plenty of free workshops you can join, others have extra cost. Prices vary per workshop. You will find all the information you need below.

When are the lavender gardens open?

The gates of the lavender gardens open from June 11th. You can still visit the lavender gardens after the festival, until the end of July. 

I’m a photographer and I would like to hire one of the gardens for a photoshoot. What’s the procedure?

For photoshoots we have 2 lavender gardens. The “Lavender Rows” garden is private and you can book your time slot for it for €30 per hour. The “Lavender Meditation Garden” is a public garden and you will photograph amongst other photographers, including visitors during their tours. Book your time slot for €20 per hour. Give us a call to book your garden of choice.  

If I have my admission ticket and want to take some pictures with my friends and family in the Lavender Gardens, do I have to book?

With your admission ticket, you are free to enter the lavender gardens and take pictures for up to 30 minutes. Professional photoshoots do require hiring the gardens, as a photoshoot takes at least an hour. The lavender gardens are booked fast by many photographers. In order to have your time photoshooting without being disturbed or having a busy background, booking is required. 

Is the park wheelchair accessible?

Most areas of the park are. You can go to the Woodland, the Maze, the themed Herb Gardens, the Botanicus Bistro, the Distillation Room and the Lavender Boutique Shop with a wheelchair or a pram. Unfortunately, the Lavender Gardens are not wheelchair or pram accessible due to the fact that the paths are too narrow, and the earth is not smooth. This can cause damage not only to the wheelchair but also to the lavender plants.

Can I bring my dog?

Dogs are only allowed in the maze and the woodland. Dogs are not allowed in the herb gardens or the lavender garden.
