  • Ramble ok. 2 hours-7-8 km. People during the season. At the beginning of the Green and nothing happens-Gorge on this episode a bit tiring. Then there's some spectacular moments-high rocks, narrow passages, the arc. Unfortunately it is at the end of many episodes, so that necessarily take water. It can go in the sports footwear (but you better not in sneakers, or wearing sneakers). Flip-it does not pass. The transition from the village of Imbros, permanently down. Tickets unless E-2, my children also pay (but this Teen) Auto best leave in Imbros (and no farther in this restaurant Parocośtam), exit the Gorge is the tavern/kiosk with drinks and from there back to Imbros. Auto pick-up Hilux or Navara-3 the first lucky ones loaded into the cabin, 8 people sitting on the pace. The driver quite rough, especially at the beginning of the village ... so if someone is sensitive, it is not recommend. The ride costs 5E from person to person. Along the way at one of the tunnels is a small car park Tavern (but you have to drive yourself with Imbros-close)-nice views in the Gorge.

  • With the rental car we drove to the first entrance of the Gorge. From there, a short walk to the main entrance. The hike through the Gorge is in the 2-2.5 hours to run, this direction from the light goes down, you have you barely make an effort. Because you constantly about stone runs his sturdy soles is recommended. No facilities en route, only a toilet half way through. We started around middle of August 11, then the temperature is definitely good to have. There was also a strong wind. Overall, the majority of the route is in the Sun. By the end it was still very warm. The piece in the middle is the most spectacular, there walk you through narrow passages. It was pretty quiet, we arrived about twenty people. If you take the route the other way around would do is he something more challenging. The first Tavern at the end offers the possibility for transport back to the beginning. For you in the back of the flatbed €5 pp of a pickup truck. Made the whole thing even more fun! Within about 20 minutes, you are back at the starting point. A total of an hour we had to wait until we could back; the capacity of the transport is limited. Away still seems to be a taxi service and a bus service runs 3 times a day.

  • Small quiet walk even for children. Provide water! Very nice walk in the dried-up river bed. The scenery is worth the peek.

Where to stay in Sfakia

Thanks to the rugged terrain of Crete's southwestern coastline, Sfakia remains a tiny settlement with just a few hotels, which offer clean rooms with sea views. Most people rush through Sfakia on their way to the island's more popular resorts, which means that you can choose from affordable rooms in town even at the height of tourist season. A good alternative to hotels, the area's family-run guesthouses provide simply furnished rooms, hearty local dishes, and easy access to nearby beaches.
