Fantastic experience. The gorge is demanding so truly worth it. There are steep steps down for the first 2-3km but the views in the early morning sunshine are extraordinary. Then the hike through the gorge and another 2km to get to Agia Roumeli to eat a late lunch. There are no defined paths and you are walking on fallen boulders to bring adequate shoes, sun cream and water. There are plenty of places to refill your water. Then we got the ferry out from the village and the coach back. It really makes it a convenient way to trek the gorge and barely any more money than by public transport. It’s a long day so be prepared
An early start for a 6.10am pickup, but so worth it! The walk is beautiful and by starting early you miss the heat of the day. The way down is very steep and slippery, but as long as you wear suitable footwear it’s fine. We did it in about 4.5 hours including the odd stop for a drink and whilst we’re moderately fit, we don’t hike much. It’s great to get the time at the beach after to relax so definitely being swimwear. A must do whilst I’m Crete!
This was an amazing adventure. Some people were hiking with sandalas, but you must have a good sneakers or shoes. It wasn't so hard as some people would say. So grab a pair of sunglases, 2 or 3 bottles of water and prepared for an amazing hike, which mister Bilbo Baggins would appreciate so much. P.S. You should know, that in a second part of a hike you will not find so much spots to fill water bottles, so beware.
It was just wonderful trip with very kind and helpful guide. The trek itself is kinda tough - in total 17km walking on the stony paths, your body will sore. Honestly not for everyone. Although, the nature and scenery there is just amazing and I really really recommend everyone to go there. Whole trip was well organized, we didn’t find any problem. :-)
excellent hike and very good organization of the tour. the bus picked us up at the time specified and everything was in order. the hike was enjoyable and at the end there was more than enough time to wait for the ferry and bus tour back while at the beach.
