Description

Departure for Chora Sfakion. Arrival at Imbros Gorge . Imbros Gorge is the second most known gorge in Crete after Samaria Gorge. Its length is about 8km of spectacular views and takes no longer than 2,5 hours. The path is not particularly difficult to walk. 

The gorge is fairly narrow with plenty of trees, so you will have shade most of the time. After a 2 hour walk you will end up at the village of Komitades where you will meet the bus to continue the tour to Fragokastelo, Rodakino and the village of Agouseliana for lunch. After lunch we continue to Preveli where you will visit the famous Byzantine Monastery of Preveli (10th Century) near the southern coast of Crete. 

The Monastery has a glorious history due to the active and leading involvement of its fellow monks in all national endeavors for freedom and education of our people. Thus, it merits specific recognition and respect throughout the island of Crete. After visiting Preveli we return to Rethimno for dinner and overnight. 

In case you do not wish to walk through the Gorge, while other members of the group are hiking, you can continue with the bus to visit Chora Sfakion (Sfakia) for a few hours of relaxing, shopping and a swim at “Vrissi” (the Spring), a well organized sandy beach with crystal-clear waters, sunbeds and umbrellas, at the western end of Sfakia.

Cretan adventure

Absolutely gorgeous! I can’t recommend this trip enough. You truly get to see parts of the island that aren’t normally showcased. Imbros was a breeze to walk, and Agouseliana, Fragkokastelo and Rodakino were all very interesting, but for me the highlight of the tour has to be the Monastery of Preveli. I truly recommend this trip for anyone that wants to see Crete from a different lens. Be prepared for a lot of walking in uneven terrain.
