    The gorge of Imbros is one of the deepest and narrowest gorges of Crete and the second most popular for walkers after the gorge of Samaria.


    It ιs located in the South East part of the White Mountains, with 7km length, and has slopes up to 300m high.


    Despite being smaller in size than Samaria there are some very spectacular sections, especially the several very narrow passages.

  • It is famous due to the rare flora and the amazing landscape all over the area. The scenery is beautiful and the low difficulty makes the descent of Imbros ideal for families with children.
  • You can see various caves, vegetation consisting of Cypress, Oak, Maple trees as well as other trees and flowers. The gorge itself is breathtaking.
  • The walk starts from the traditional Cretan village Imbros (800m high) and ends in the village Komitades (300m high).

  • Before starting the walk there is a small café, if you wish to grab a coffee or local breakfast. After the short break, you will then start the walk through the gorge which is downhill, with a guide who will point out the native plants and give you information about the whole area.

  • This walk takes about 2 ½ hours of leisure walking where you will find your way through captivating countryside while passing mountains, villages and the impressive White Mountains.

  • At the end of the gorge at the village Komitades you can take a rest and enjoy a cold drink or a coffee.

  • You will then drive down to the seaside village of Chora Sfakion where you will have free time to relax at one of the little café/taverns on the water front overlooking the sea or enjoy a dip in the cool Libyan sea.

  • You will be returned to the same point as the morning pick up.
  • Drop-off at your hotel.
