Private Tour to Imbros Gorge

The gorge of Imbros is one of the deepest and narrowest gorges of Crete and the second most popular for visitors 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. There are some spectacular sections, especially 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.

On the way to the gorge we will stop at a Greek bakery and offer you several traditional snacks to taste, coffee or juice.

The walk takes about 2 ½ hours, at the end of the gorge at the village Komitades you can enjoy a cold drink and relax.

You will then drive down to the seaside village of Hora 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.
