100 Reviews

Imbros Gorge is located in the countryside of western Crete. It is one of the most popular gorges for hikers on the island. It's popular for many reasons including its beauty. The hike is also easier than some others in the area, making it a good choice for almost anyone who wants to spend a few hours exploring nature. The trail is about five miles long with a descent of less than 2,000 feet and usually takes two to three hours. There are some spectacular sections along the trail, including some narrow passageways. Along the hike, you will pass several small villages.

The gorge also holds historical significance. In May 1941 during World War II, Allied troops walked through the gorge while trying to escape Crete and get to Egypt. Many people whose parents or grandparents were there visit the gorge today as a kind of pilgrimage.

Crete’s 5-mile (8-kilometer) Imbros Gorge makes a scenic yet not too challenging hike—ideal for older travelers and families (under-14s go free). With no direct public bus connections from Chania, this affordable tour makes sense. A hiking escort keeps an eye on everyone, while you enjoy a seamless transfer to picturesque Sfakia for swimming and perhaps a taverna meal. Pay as you go for all expenses except guiding and transfers.

Imbros Gorge and visit a Winery or Frangokastello Beach Full Day Private Tour

Imbros Gorge and visit a Winery or Frangokastello Beach Full Day Private Tour

This is a private tour with a 7-seater van for a maximum 6 guests. If you are looking for a light hike combining a winery or beach, this is the perfect tour for you! Imbros gorge is located on the eastern Lefka Ori mountains and it’s 8km long. For an average hiker it will take around 3 hours to cross. After pick up from Chania area we head down to Imbros village where the gorge starts. We will drop you off at the entrance and pick you up at the end. Most of the gorge is in the shade with a narrow trail (no cliffs) and pine trees. There is a small stream which is dry in the summer so it’s good to have sufficient supply of water. Imbros gorge is the smallest and most beautiful in terms of size compared to Samaria gorge which is a 5-6 hour hike. After Imbros you have two choices. Visit a winery or a beach. Both locations need around two hours each and we would recommend to visit both at a small extra cost. You could eat in both locations.
