Camping in the Rouvas Forest

Saturday 25th – Sunday 26th September 2021

An easy and beautiful hike in the southern part of Mt Psiloritis.

On Saturday morning we reach the area ofSei, at 1300m a.s.l. by bus, and l we hike down across Rouvas forest. At Ai Yannis, at 950m, a beautiful place in the Quercus coccifera forest with running water and wooden benches and tables, we set our camp.  Hiking around the area is a nice option.

On Sunday morning we hike down the gorge of Zaros, past the Agios Nikolaos Monastery, until the small lake of Votomos, at 450m. Then we get on the bus and continue to a nearby beach on the south coast for a nice swim.
