An absolutely gorgeous view, or views - as you drive along the somewhat narrow (but not dangerously so) road through the mountains. We even got to see some vultures circling and nesting in the caves.

Crete has so many beautiful nature sites. Topolia Gorge is one of them. We took a roundtrip in car: From Kissamos - Falasarne - South near the coast - Elos - Topolia. A wonderful trip. Topolia Gorge is so magnificent. And in Topolia Village there is a good restaurant.

Between Elafonisi - Kissamos you'll see this nice gorge from car - no need to walk down, perhaps a stop for a photo. I guess, it is nice to walk, too.

We traveled through, and stopped by, this gorge on our way to and from Elafonisi beach. If you're scared of heights, this is not for you, but the scenery is magnificent and traveling on the winding roads is an adventure itself. Stop by the small stands on the way and try/buy jams, flavoured raki etc. Delicious!!

we visited topolia gorge as it was a short distance from hotel spilia where we stayed. the gorge is wonderful, dramatic and quiet. it maybe smaller than other cretan gorges but benefits from less tourists. we saw vultures majestically souring above us. Topolia village is worth a visit has a number of tavernas that present a different experience to eating... More

Topolia is small village on the route to the more famous Topolia Gorge. Rather than driving through on to the Gorge stop off for a few minutes to explore the area. There are two churches, one high upon the hill and a short steep climb up steps will reward you with some amazing views of the valley. The larger Church... More

We parked next to the bakery (the little dough pockets filled with spinach are great!) and then went down to the gorge. We went down through the village until we got to the start of the gorge. Walking in the gorge is really nice, serene and not hard. It was the end of July and there were no people at... More

Driving through the village I could not find a bakery as is mentioned in the other articles here on trip advisor (I probably missed it somehow). I asked for directions and they gave me a brochure that sent me out of the village, through a tunnel to a tavern at the left side of the road (can't miss it; about... More
