Walk through the gorge

Picturesque Imbros Gorge is the second most popular gorge on Crete and is a nine mile long canyon located near Chora Sfakion in the south of the island.

The first half hour of this tour is a downhill walk with the gorge getting narrower along the way.

The Imbros Gorge mule trail was the only link between Chania and Chora Sfakion before the road was built and remains of this trail can still be seen. This is a relatively easy walking tour and the scenery is spectacular.
