Description

Our guide/driver will pick you up from your hotel at 8:30. After a 40min drive towards the hinterland, we will arrive in the remote village of Moundros where our walk starts.

This walk aims at making you discover this part of the island, off the beaten tracks, where nature often seems untouched and human presence is mostly embodied by... animals and agricultural activities! Beehives, pastures, vines...

The hike can be divided in three parts:

The first part can be the most demanding as to reach the start of the first gorge, we have some good uphills ahead! On the way, we will go through an old abandonned village, built some 400 years ago but quite well-preserved; a unique opportunity to imagine what life could be like in this area in the past as we wander from the olive oil mill to old stoned-houses.

The second part is easier as we enter the first of the two gorges; lush nature, boulders and water running most of the year (except for the hot months of summer but the shade provided inside eases the walk during those months). From one bank to the other and sometimes in the river bed, the walk reveals all its secrets; amazing rock formations, birds, goats among others. Anytime is good for a little break in the shade and you can rely on your guide to provide you with some bread & cheese, olives and even a nice coffee in the middle of nowhere!

The third part is also easy; we even go back on the asphalt (civilization?!) for a little while to reach the second gorge. This one leads back to the village of Moundros and is more open than the first one; it will give you the chance to walk in more open spaces and enjoy views of the high walls of the gorge, sometimes overhung by vultures...but as this hike is for fit people, we shall have no fear of passing them!

Back to the car, we will head to another nearby village for a nice late lunch in a traditional family taverna for a heartwarming food reward.
