Description

Preparation and gear breafing

Arriving in the entrance of Kourtaliotiko gorge, we are immediately amazed by the majestic walls that stand hundreds of meters high. We take the stone steps that lead us to the source of the river that formed this scenery through the ages. There, we can visit the little church of S. Nicolas Kourtaliotis, the local saint that lived here as a hermit, and learn about the old myths of the gorge.

We take some time to put on our neoprene suits and our personal gear, distributed by the team leaders. Then, the instructors will give a safety briefing so that we can understand the use of our gear and learn to trust it. Now we are ready to get the fun started!

Canyoning games in the river

The source of Kourtaliotiko river becomes a natural playground for us! Feel free to rappel down the steep canyon wall next to the waterfall and try adrenaline jumps in the water as many times as you wish. We swim around, we take pictures and we play like kids! Our specialized instructors and guides will be next to you at all times to ensure your safety and guide you through the different activities.

Short river trek

Our adventure continues further down the river. Hiking towards the south, we soon discover a small cave called “the fairy cave” – if you are lucky enough, you may see one hiding behind the stalactites and stalagmites! We will hike for about half an hour more to find the best spot for our next stop.

Picnic next to the river

It’s time to enjoy a light lunch the locals’ way. Cretan products, breathtaking scenery around us and a lot of laughs after a beautiful, team-bonding experience! The vehicles are waiting for us in a two-minutes walking distance to take us back to Rethymno.
