A fantastic walk into a secluded gorge.

Walk along the natural gorge valley, admiring the vertical cliffs dotted with caves and spot griffon vultures flying overhead. Mediterranean flora and fauna, in a spectacular setting.

This gorge starts near a small village, about a 20 minute drive from Kissamos.

The path through the gorge is accessible for most walkers. Aromatic herbs like thyme and sage grow all year round, filling the air with their scents.

Goats roam free in the gorge and if you are lucky you might catch sight of the majestic griffon vultures who live & nest in the high cliffs.

To pass through the whole gorge needs about 2.5 hours, and the same to return, but you can also do a shorter route, walking part of the way into the gorge and turning back. It is also possible do this as a linear walk, starting at the top of the gorge, walk the full gorge and continue down to Kissamos. Ask us for transfer prices if you would like to do this!

Walking shoes or sandals, trainers also fine.

To be able to walk for approx. 2 hours on rocky terrain.
