This is a great fairly easy walk. But not with high heels or flip flops! 7 km downhill over stones and path ways. Bring water and some food for your energy and water balance. At the end a taxi will drive you back to the starting point. Best place to start is kalinorisma, where you can park your car and... More

We drove ourselves to the Gorge. The start point is deceptive, as you enter Imbros you’ll see Gorge start signs and parking, if you park here you’ll have an extra 1km to walk to the Gorge start point. Drive through the village until to see a large yellow building and a sign stating “Main Entrance Imbros Gorge” – see photos.... More

We took a common transport to the main entrance and started our walk down to the sea. The ground is very rocky in some places so I recommend hiking shoes or good sneakers. Walking poles are not needed if you do not want them from other aspects. The trip is 8 km and takes about 2-2.5 hours. Get started early... More

We went on a organised tour!. We were given 2-3hours for the walk down., however with our speed and ability - we just walked the walk in the time given, didn't have enough time to actually enjoy the walk and enjoy the enviornment. Regardless - it is well worth the walk. At the end of the walk we found out... More

My two friends and I decided to walk this gorge since Samaria was not yet open. One of our group decided to take the day off and it was probably a wise decision for her since her ankles are not strong. The walk was not difficult but it is rocky so footing can be a bit tricky. I hasten to... More

It is only about 7kms long. Not a tough walk but it does get hot as the sun climbs into the sky. Also take a pole if your a mature age as the track is loose stones and rocks. Easy to twist an ankle. The gorge is only about 10minutes from the little seaside village of Hora Sfaklia. Very nice... More

The walk is flat And not strenuous but all on rocks so much effort is put into watching where you put feet. Also not very exciting scenery. In short something to do but not wonderful

The gorge is 7 km long.You ca walk it easily by yourself. There are a lot of stones, which hurt your feet at the end. It's not that cold, because mostly the gorge is very wide and sun come to the bottom. At the end you have to take a taxi, which is 5 euro per person. Buttake care:it is... More

This is a relatively easy downhill walk. Easy to access from Hora Sfakia by taking the local bus to Imbros village. It is good to visit one of the cafes at Imbros before the start - maybe even for breakfast. The walk is full of twists and turns, with varied scenery. It is best to do the walk in the... More
