Let’s escape to the wild nature and to the most mesmerizing places of Crete!

Delve into the beauty of the second most visited gorge on the island, Imbros Gorge. Easier to walk than the renowned Samaria gorge, Imbros is equally captivating with its several narrow stony passages, the steep slopes and cliffs around, the shady trees that protect you from the scorching sun and the wild vegetation. The route is mostly descending but never steep and it takes only about two hours to walk, which it makes it ideal for families with children.

At the end of your walk, find yourself at one of the most stunning beaches in Crete, Fragokastello. Discover the impressive Venetian castle of Fragokastello on golden shores with its own unique history, closely related to the legend of Drosoulites. Sit back and relax on the beach, enjoying breathtaking views of lofty mountains, wide plains, and the surrounding deep blue sea. Refresh yourself floating in shallow turquoise waters. After swimming, enjoy a delicious meal in one of the nearby taverns before heading back to your bus with unforgettable memories.

Great gorge and tour

We liked the tour very much and we could do it again if we visit Crete in the future again! The guide was welcoming and spoke clearly and we understood her very well even though our primary language is not English. We were lucky and the weather was favorable on that day so we didn't get too much hot during the tour.

My kids enjoyed the walk even though it was exhausting. Would recommend it since the price is not that high and it includes services such as pick up and drop off. The bus was on time (we were staying in amoudara area) nd the guide was nice.

Κουραστήκαμε αλλά το αγαπήσαμε!

Θέλαμε για πολύ καιρό να επισκεφτούμε την Κρήτη και να πάμε σε κάποιο από τα φαράγγια. Οπότε φέτος είπαμε να το δοκιμάσουμε. Μας άρεσε πάρα πολύ αν και είχε τρομερή ζέστη εκείνη την ημέρα!! Αν κάποιος θέλει να πάει προτείνω να το κάνει γύρω στον Μάιο που ο καιρός είναι σχετικά πιο δροσερός.

Beatiful and refreshing walk!

The gorge itself is stunning; the walk is long but it is worth it. The bus drive was comfortable and our guide was pleasant.
