This is a typical itinerary for this productStop At:
Imbros Gorge, close to Chora Sfakia Start in Impros or Komitades, Crete Greece
Hiking in the countryside is a great thing to do on Crete, an island full of beautiful, inviting gorges with stunning views. Samaria is one that many people visit, but it’s a strenuous trek. Imbros, though, is a gorge for everyone, a rocky but easy 5-mile (8-km) walk.
After your hotel pickup in a comfortable, air-conditioned shuttle van, travel to Imbros Gorge with your guide. Begin your walk and take in the beauty of the limestone gorge. Pass the lovely villages of Vrisses, Askifou and Imbros, stopping in one for a taste of sfakia pita, a cheese bread topped with locally made honey, or Greek mountain tea (snack changes depending on which day you travel).
In the village of Komitades, the terminus for the hike, enjoy some free time to explore the village and eat a nice, leisurely Cretan lunch (not included).
