Not the best gorge around (prefer Aradhena): it wide and flat most of the time. And crowded. Best is to start from the bottom (free parking at Komitades). Then walk the way up for ~4km and you'll see all there is to see: at ~1km,...More

Imbros used to be one of the prettiest and easiest gorges in Crete. However, recent heavy rain has brought down rocks and scree (some of the scree was still active in early March) in many places and washed away the path in others. What was...More

I think we are spoiled from having lived in Colorado and hiking the rockies, but this was underwhelming. The trail is mostly rocky with not a lot of wildlife or amazing views. There were some neat parts like where the gorge narrows towards the end....More

We started at the bottom of the gorge, by the little chapel. A few hundred meters in, there is a ticket booth. Pr. Oct 17 the ticket price is € 2.50 each. The gorge is quite easy to walk, but I recommend good shoes. In...More

We chose to hike the Imbros Gorge instead of Samaria because the logistics were easier and it would not take the entire day. We arrived in Imbros at 9:30 am. If entering the village coming from Chania, you will see multiple signs for parking. The...More

It is one of the easier gorges in Chania. You need about 2,30 hours to pass it. It has many interesting elements, particularly in the first half. You can find the entrance very easily.
