  • Beautiful walk, few rocks to jump over but safe and fairly easy. We saw family with kids on the way. I would recommend to go from the morning if you are driving, because it is a fair walk.  more »
  • Beautiful gorge in Greece, very lush vegetation. Some Palmtrees I've seen there I've never seen elsewhere in Greece. It looks more ke a tropical garden, than in Greece. 2 hrs. Down and 2hrs. Up, so no...  more »
  • It was not so easy as told, I kept walking for 3,5 hours although I'm an experienced walker. I walked through Samaria gorge in the same time and it was easy walking. You have to slide and climb and st...  more »

  • The gorge is excellent. at the end, 800 meters east along a cliff walk is a Kantina overlooking the sea. And it is Glorious, delecious barbequed meats,salads, fried potatoes and home made wine welcome you at the hikes end. Top secret tip!
  • Hike up from Richtis Beach, DON'T hike down from the Richtis Gorge parking area. Not unless you REALLY want to see the bridge. The hike become borderline impassable around the farms. Put Richtis Beach in your GPS, not Richtis Gorge.
  • Very beautiful Gorge along a small river. It is not very well signed so you need to improvise a lot. Very important, when you find the arch bidge, go under, not over cause you will get lost. The Gorge is a 5km trail rather easy, even for children, but the beach at the end is not so nice for a relaxing swim. It is very rocky and wavy. Overall it is more than worth the visit.
  • Adventurous walk, hike, climb through lush green.
  • Fun walk, climbing down on rocks in a place that sometimes looks like a jungle. Wear proper walking shoes as the path is sometimes quite difficult. Park the car at the start of the trail down, or drive the small concrete road down to the bridge. The trail proceeds by going under the bridge, not over! After 1,5 hours you will be at the staircase down to the waterfall. Follow the red painted dots on rocks closely. We've lost the trail a couple of times :-) After the waterfall we turned around and took the same path up. People say that the last part to the beach and back isn't the most interesting route.
