Rouvas gorge hiking in Crete: A very challenging 7 hour hike, available from April to November. This stretch starts lake Votomos and ends in Rouvas forest. Not suited for children. This gorge is also known as the Saint Nicholas Canyon. At the beginning of the walk you come across a lake, which is a fresh water lake, very rare on Crete. A little bit further you see the first object; the monastery of Agios Nikolaos. There is a lot to be seen along the way; you cross bridges for example and you will see a waterfall.
