    Not far from the south coast of Crete there is one of the largest and most famous gorges called Imbros. It begins in the village of Imbros, and ends in the village of Komitades. The length of the gorge is 8 kilometres. A few decades ago, it was the only road that connected the villages of the Sfakia district with the northern areas of the island.

    Special Features of the Gorge

    Since ancient times, Imbros has played a main role for the people of Sfakia. They could only maintain contact with the inhabitants of other regions thanks to the gorge, because until the 1960s it was the only connecting route. Cavities and caves, located inside the mountains, played the role of shelters.

    The route begins with modest landscapes, which turn into picturesque roads in a few minutes. In some areas, you can see the remains of an ancient road that was paved with stones. Little by little the road becomes more and more narrow: in some places its width does not exceed two meters. Numerous rocks can be seen all around.

    The flora of the gorge is very rich and diverse. It is represented by:

    1. Perennial oaks.
    2. Plane trees.
    3. Pine trees.
    4. Olive trees.
    5. Cypress trees.

    At the end of the route there is a stone arch, which is one of the favourite places for taking photos.

    Travel Tips

    It will take you 2 hours to pass the route or about 3 hours including taking photos and break. In order to make the trip as comfortable as possible, we suggest using some tips:

    • Wear comfortable shoes (durable, with a flat sole);
    • Take a drinking water;
    • Do not throw away tickets purchased at the entrance (they are often checked at the exit).

    The most favourable season to visit this sight is from April to May. During this time, the area is full of green plantings and bright colours. It is very comfortable to travel in autumn since, in the absence of rain, there is no intense heat. Clouds give a special flavour and create a fabulous atmosphere.

    Tour of the Unruly South

    This tour is in great demand. There are a lot of reasons for this popularity, because it is:

    • Fascinating walking tour with a view of the mountains;
    • Simple route suitable for everyone;
    • Opportunity to enjoy the picturesque scenery;
    • Unforgettable journey into the wildlife world of Crete.

    After passing the gorge, there are 2 options to go:

    1. Aradan Bridge, where you can get a lot of impressions.
    2. Sfakia with lunch on the beach and swimming in the lagoon.

    You can go on such a tour even with small children. Although the route passes through mountainous areas, there are no abrupt changes in height, difficult climbs and impassable areas. The journey is something like a walk, during which you can take beautiful photos and get positive emotions.

    The tour is arranged by qualified professionals – guides of Moysidis Travel. Extensive experience in this field provides us with the opportunity to thoroughly think over each stage of the sightseeing tour and the opportunity to guarantee first-class service.
