A perfect alternative for people who find Samaria too early or too far. A good balance between hiking and walking. Even children love this adventurous hike.
In 2000 we, Eye Travel, discovered a gorge near Hersonissos and started organising tours through this gorge guided by one of the Eye Travel team.
This gorge is about 8 km long, takes around 3,5 hours and has some obstacles on the way down. You will see untouched nature, some birds of prey, vultures,... The real Cretan flora and fauna.

    Luise, our guide, made the trip absolutely memorable. She was so well informed, taught us so much about nature, the gorge and Greek culture. And, had an infectious energy. The gorge was beautiful and really fun to hike- but she took the experience to new heights!! We adored her and this excursion!

    Deze kloof is echt een kloofwandeling (hiking). TOP geen uitgesleten voetpad waar je gewoon kunt lopen. Hier moet je echt klimmen en afdalen met geweldige natuur. En onze gids, Louise, was gewoon een TOPPER. Wist veel te vertellen en heel gezellig. Deze kloof is (eigenlijk) een must om een keer te doen.

    Louise, our guide, was super - jokey, fun to be with, but also very professional and encouraging. She made our excursion a memorable experience.

    I booked this tour before arriving and was impressed with the response. Picked up on time, and only a small group of 5 plus guide, which made it more enjoyable. Guide took time to explain what we would be doing and at no point felt rushed and able to take things at our own pace. Lunch provided was very good and plentiful. Would recommend company and walk.

    Het was echt een leuke trip. Veel gezien en ook echt super leuke en lieve gidsen die ons top begeleid hebben. Ik beveel iedereen dit aan om te doen want het was echt top.

    We hebben een fantatische uitstap gedaan, dit met onze tiener kinderen (11, 13 en 16 jaar). Kinderen hebben genoten ervan. Ik, als reisagent, kan het alleen maar aanraden dit zeker te doen. Wij hadden ervoor gekozen omdat de Samariakloof veel te ver was. Hier was het kortbij Chersonissos, waar ons hotel gelegen was. Ook de lunch die erbij was was best ok, zelfs voor de kinderen. Onze gidse Franceska heeft ons super begeleid

    Habe heute an der Tour teilgenommen, es war wunderbar. Ich selber bin nicht gerade die sportlichste, habe diesen Trip aber gut bewältigt. Unser Guide Jessika war sehr nett, hat ein bisschen etwas erklärt und an schwierigen Stellen geholfen. Die Tour besteht aus 3 Teilen. Der erste Teil geht einen Weg entlang den Berg hinunter. Von hier aus kann man noch die gute Aussicht in die Ferne genießen. Der zweite Teil geht an einem ausgetrockneten Flussbett entlang durch die Bäume und Pflanzen. Der dritte Teil ist der bei dem es etwas anstrengender wird. Hier läuft und klettert man durch die Felsen im ehemaligen Flussbett. Am Ende angekommen läuft man noch kurz über einen Weg zu den Tourbussen und fährt weiter zur Taverne. Das essen war sehr gut, die Bedienung sehr freundlich. Eine Erfahrung die sich wirklich lohnt!

    Fantastische wandeling gehad met gids Jessica. Aangenaam tempo met tijd voor pauze en info over dieren en planten. Gevarieerd parcours van boven in dorp met als laatste deel de kloof. Wandeling die gemakkelijk te doen is (kloof stond volledig droog). Na de wandeling heel lekker gegeten in plaatselijk taverne met super-enthousiaste gastvrouw! Werden afgehaald aan het hotel en na afloop teruggebracht. Superleuke dag gehad.

    We did this with our 8 year old son. We were a little worried initially but he (and all of us really) lives it. If your child is not particularly active, then perhaps not for you but otherwise I think kids and parents will love this. Sophie, our guide, was wonderful too and very helpful with some of our group members who found some parts of the walk difficult. The tour ends with lunch at Zorbas tavern, a family run restaurant. After that long walk, we were really hungry and had the most wonderful lunch served by Amelia’s (“mamma”) team. Our son called it “the best food he had eaten in Crete”. All-in-all, very recommended for all.....
