Great adventure - managed it (just about) with 3 kids - 7/10/12. Best to go early and definitely take decent shoes - at least trainers if not walking boots. trail is not well marked though so it takes some working through to descend to the beautiful lake at the bottom. Be prepared to come back up the gorge - there... More

We had a great time exploring the gorge - Parking was easy. I would recommend trainers or walking boots as the climb down the gorge can be quite tricky and slippery in places - well worth the effort each level down has a beautiful pool. Lots of climbing and bouldering- my teen really enjoyed himself. Good choice for a change... More

Very beautiful place, with a small river and clear cold water in the miidle of the summer. You can find next to the church of Ag. Antoniou free barbeque to cook and relax.

This is a must day out, lovely gorge walk, very cooling on hot days, amazing restaurant before you enter the gorge with playing area and a small animal zoo. Also the drive to this place from Rethymon was amazing the scenery is stunning.

Thoroughly recommend walking this gorge. A highlight of our Crete trip. It is both beautiful and a good challenge. We programmed Drymos Taverna into google maps and it took us to the start of the gorge. Drymos is a great place to start - a large outdoor taverna with great food. We then walked to the gorge entrance (2 minutes).... More

This is a lovely gorge within easy reach of Rethymno by car. The entrance to the gorge is easy to traverse with low level paths. If you want to explore more of the gorge you will need to negotiate some more difficult paths. The atmosphere is cool and relaxing on even the hottest of days, recommended.

We eventually found the gorge which could seriously do with some signage on the one road in!!! We took the lower path with the kids and instantly felt like bear grills! Climbing over rocks and jumping across streams is a great way to reconnect to the teens. If you take the lower gorge follow the green dots if you feel... More

Somewhat unknown and quite difficult to find if you do not have an up to date GPS system or some good information about the roads, but fairly easily accessible once you have the correct information. Place the following numbers into google maps to see the junction 35.251622, 24.566374 and then follow the signs to the start of the trail. The... More

This is a really nice, pretty gorge and quite easy to reach by car. There are reasonable tracks down one side and some nice views. A lovely little church built into the rock face. We didn't explore it all and some parts are a bit heavy going and probably not suitable for small children. The Taverna is great, really tasty... More
