Breathtaking scenery

Fantastic trip out! Hotel pick up. Masks worn on the bus which wasn’t too busy at all considering it’s August! When we got to the gorge it was a little busy mainly with Greek tourists not practicing social distancing. The trek is so long that eventually your displaced with other walkers and find yourself walking peacefully with no one around. Plenty of rest places and toilets on the way. Most people wearing trainers. It’s a well trodden trail and pathways wide enough to pass slower walkers where needed. The most arduous part I found was leaving the park and walking to the little tourist town by the beach. You can take a bus for €2 if you wish. Highly recommend this trip for the scenery. Warning your leg muscles will ache the next day!

Dear Nicholas thank you for your nice comment! We are happy that you enjoyed the walk and we would totally agree with you about the last 2 kilometres walk but the gorge is truly a lifetime experience. We would be happy to welcome you again on one of our tours! With best regards

The hike is VERY challenging. NOT for a beginner or moderate hiker. Everyone should use hiking shoes not tennis or running shoes. Walking sticks were also a great help. the first 3 kilometers and all downhill but VERY steep and the footing difficult. the Gorge floor is advertised as relatively flat maybe for a goat or mule but the uneven footing persists throughout the entire 13 .5 kilometers It is very beautiful. However my legs took three days to recover.
