  • A great ride in the middle of the Green, it's like "jungle" so limit it's Green. There are some small streams, rocks to climb... The ride is largely feasible (it took an hour to get down to the waterfall) but it must still be smart. And the waterfall is just top, it feels like the middle of nowhere.

  • You can find this gorge on the way from Agios Nikolaos to Sitia. We parked on the main road and walked down to the bridge Lachanas that is the starting point. The route is marked quite well, the gorge...  more »
  • End of a very nice tour, which starts very easy and requires a certain flexibility in the middle of October. The way to the Creek begins between nut trees and pumpkin patches, soon he will be narrower and steeper, then the well marked path goes about 1/3 of the line over large blocks of rock that must be climbed over the part. Our children (8 and almost 6) took everything loose, which is six years and so far not necessarily hiking joyful daughter with little help and great enthusiasm. Hiking boots make the thing easier; This is nothing for sandals. The deflection at any point seemed dangerous, but it takes everyone a few times four. This is not a stroll along the promenade. We went to the water fall from the bridge. The path from the main road up to the bridge is very nice and if we should do this again, we will let the car on the main road. To save some stress is (the way is only limited car use). You should continue to the beach and then go back to another way. We have tried to go this way with the car (not a good idea; long, extremely steep, without 4 x 4 and oncoming traffic no contribution to the recovery) and are reversed after the half. While we have picked up charming French who seemed well on foot and had overtaken us in the Gorge. They seemed far too far to find it. And that was at 20 degrees and shadow. Who want to do this summer: take plenty of water and food;)
