Ski in Crete? Of course! Do believe me, mountains and ski resorts in mainland Greece can feel much jealous of this mountain! So for someone wishing to go skiing in Crete there are two choices, as the ski resort is actually not working: to carry the skis on their back and after some quite tiresome walking to ski down a little bit or to put the skins under the skis and start touring around. We are going to deal with the latter.
Rouvas George #Crete #Greece Hikers, walkers and E4 European Path trekkers will find an abundance of scenic walks including the Rouvas Gorge known also as Zaros Gorge in and around Zaros. The Rouvas Gorge leads to the protected Rouvas Forest which is the oldest oak forest on Crete. The breathtaking scenery of Zaros is enhanced by the many beautiful and colourful flowers, especially at springtime.
