The Association was founded in 1997 by Professor Andreas Zachariou and a team of dreamers and determined people who believed in the need to develop a harmonious relationship between man, mountain and nature.
EOS Nicosia is an expansion to Cyprus of a broader EOS group which operate in Greece. It is a member of this group with similar statutes and objectives and maintains close cooperation with several of them.
The basic philosophy of EOS Nicosia is the systematic cultivation and dissemination of mountaineering, the spread of love and respect towards the mountainous nature and the protection of the mountainous environment in general.
For those who want to get in touch with the beauty of the mountain and feel the magic of exploration, mountaineering offers the perfect opportunity. And most importantly: Everyone can deal with this sport.
At the center of our thoughts and desires, there is always the desire to help and support all those who wish to experience the mountainous nature and its people. The concepts and ideas of sustainable development are more suited to the mountain and express people altogether.
Many passed the door of the club and became our stable friends, we became a company with common dreams, common struggles and common joys.
EOS Nicosia is a non-profit club. Its small budget is mostly used for the purchase of mountaineering equipment, books, tents, etc. The association’s resources come from contributions from its members as well as sponsorships. It is a founding member of the Cyprus Mountaineering, Climbing and Orienteering Federation and member of the Federation of Environmental and Ecological Organizations of Cyprus.
