Overall really enjoyed the experience and thought it was great value for the price! The beginning of the hike was a little hectic as two bus loads of people entered the trail at once (where it's very narrow and slippery), but after about 20 minutes of walking people started to spread out and walk at various paces. It took my group about 3.5 hours to complete the trail, we walked at a brisk pace and only stopped once for 15 minutes to eat our lunch. We really enjoyed the beautiful scenery and quiet (not as many visitors in October). Once we reached the end, we walked through the town to get to the beach and enjoyed a couple of hours there in the sun.
Our most challenging excursion, what an adventure, a great experience and achievement, we were all impressed with ourselves at the end with over 6 hours of walking over 30,000 steps on very rocky ground and steep hills up and down, walked across water on a rickety bridge. Am still suffering with some aches and pains on my thighs and calves Well organised will recommend to others for sure
The pick up was way to late, and we could not reach anybody of the organisation. However the tourguide was very friendly, and even gave us some food in the gorge. The tour was well organisted, and the guide was waiting for you on every the rest location. It was a really nice hike and the gorge was really beautiful!
First this is a trek not a hike. Nikos is awesome. The beach at the end of the trek was super relaxing and well needed after hours of physical exertion. This is not an easy excursion by any means. It is actually a very difficult activity. Wear hiking shoes! Entrance fee and boat ticket are separate costs.
Beautiful but challenging walk, come prepared, good boots and a hiking stick will make it more enjoyable
