Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.
When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.
Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.

Lose your breath to the stunning views and vistas over the valleys of Lysos on the fringes of the Paphos forest.
Located 36 kilometres north-east of Pafos, the village found fame as the original base of the EOKA movement, a guerrila organisation that fought for the liberation of Cyprus from British rule. A number of "lairs"can still be seen in the area.
Within the village is a Byzantine church that houses a byzantine fresco.
It is the surrounding countryside that is truly spectacular - our route passes through a number of steep valleys on the edge of the Paphos forest, and we glide through crumbling villages that have been deserted for over 40 years - at all times surrounded by spectacular scenery.
The route is a little more challenging, so we recommend this for gliders who are adventurous and more confident in their ability.
Please be careful to observe all signs for rights of way when following other people's routes, as we cannot guarantee that they do not cross private or hazardous land.
