Going through magnificent remote villages and viewpoints we will arrive at the Imbros gorge – an easier alternative to the famous Samaria Gorge.

A 3-hour trek through beautiful scenery and some spectacular very narrow passages.

Spring is a really lovely time to walk through Imbros because there are many wild and endemic flowers and Cretan nature is just amazing.

Walking in the summer is great too since the gorge is shaded and as you are going down on a gentle path you are not going to suffer too much from the heat. But please note that, once you get past June you will miss all the beautiful flowers that grow in the cliffs.

Your local guide will be waiting for you at the exit of the Imbros Gorge to drive you to the Libyan sea where you will embark on a ferry that will take you to the beautiful bay of Loutro.

You will then have plenty of time for a relaxing break and -why not- a swim in the crystal-clear waters and the opportunity for an authentic gastronomic experience in one of its local tavernas.

Loutro is such an incredibly soporific place, where there's absolutely nothing ( ... almost ) to do but eat, drink and laze - and where you fast lose any desire to do anything else. 

*There is also the possibility that your local guide will accompany you during the trek – please inform us if necessary.

After this experience, you will wave your goodbyes to the magnificent Sfakia region and will return to Chania with memories of a lifetime!

The relative easiness of this gorge makes it an ideal walk for families with children.
