  • After reading the reviews was to doubt to go to the Avakas Gorge to go with our Nissan Micra. I have done it anyway and it's good to do. You have to drive a reasonable mountain 3 times but the roads are fine passable if you quiet ride and an experienced driver. We are not only until the last parking lot, but have put him in front of the restaurant around the corner is of the Avakas Gorge and from there it is a 7-minute walk from the place where all the Jeeps and the entrance is. The location of the place to where I am driven is: (34.918824, 32.333243). If you look you see on Google satellites also cars. So in conclusion, you leave no Jeep safari or Jeep Palm off but just pick up your normal car!! The gap itself is also fantastic to see, the first pieces it is reasonable at the same time pressure if you are with a large group of Jeep Safari people, but if you're really that once past beautiful! We have about 1.5 hours. We are at the end of the Gorge is reversed (as though the end was?) and then walked back. Also good to do with warm weather!

  • This Gorge was beautiful with the walks however beware if you're not very good on your feet or you have young toddlers with you be prepared to help them. It's especially tough with the heat if it's bl...  more »
  • Rather, it is wąwozik than the Gorge. Three kilometers among the rocks-sometimes you have to climb, surrounded by nature, goats and apparently the river. In July, the River was a stream, nature powalała not-losing luster by the heat, and goat meczały and reportedly were the wild although illusion quite tame. The car does not have to be, you can drive up almost under the same input. Ankle boots with good soles need to stones, or climbing on the rock. You'll need to water, in the summer a LOT. Loving such climates much more recommend Samaria Gorge Crete-this is adventure:-) or closer ... beautiful Slovak Paradise.

  • Beautiful hike that is well worth the visit! You can easily go from the parking spot up to a point in gorge and back along the defined path with relative ease. DO NOT go with flip flops, you will have a very bad time. Wear good shoes that you don't mind getting wet as you will need to walk over wet slippery rocks. Please note that there is no defined trail to hike the whole gorge from beginning to end. Should you choose to hike the whole gorge you need to be in a good physical condition. Bring water and snacks. Be prepared to climb over boulders and fallen trees, and meet mountain goats and snakes.
  • Had a very nice time hiking there in late June. The place looks beautiful and there are lots of things to see. Make sure to bring a camera
  • Avakas Gorge is a great place to go for a walk and to get some shade from the Cypriot sunshine. It starts as an easy walk and gets more adventurous as you ascend the gorge with many boulders to climb over, many of which are very slippery.
  • Beautiful part of Akamas peninsula, not as hard to walk as I imagined. The path is clearly marked and there is a small BBQ area at the beginning of it. You might get wet while crossing the stream, so be prepared for that.
  • Great hike about a 2 hour walk for all ages . Alltough the road is not paved the lower car park is easily reached with every car
