Full description
Kick off your Cretan adventure when you’re picked up from your pickup point and driven by bus to the village of Skaleta, the farthest western point of the beachfront. Sip on some coffee before discovering the beauty of the second-most visited gorge on the island, Imbros Gorge.  Easier to navigate than the renowned Samaria Gorge, Imbros is just as captivating with several narrow stony passages, steep slopes and cliffs, and grand shady trees that will protect you from the hot Greek sun. Enjoy a route that mostly descends but is never steep over 2.5 hours, a trek ideal for families with children. At the end of the tour you will have more than an hour free time to enjoy the famous village of Sfakia, on the south coast of the Lybian Sea. You can choose between quiet local beaches, several cafes or taverns and many picturesque points for unique photos in order to spend your own time at Sfakia before heading back to your bus with unforgettable memories.

This is a full day trip and well worth it. The trek down Imbros gorge was not to be missed and very scenic and the beach at Fragokastello was a very welcome and warm swim with the old Venetian fort providing a great backdrop. Pick-up and set-down arrangements were not great but overall day was very enjoyable.

Great views, spectacular trail, but lazy guide Kristina -- little and inaccurate communication, plus more interested in her lunch and beer than talking to clients.
