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

We went to this Gorge two days after taking the more famous Imbros (Impros) gorge. Comparing the two, Impros has more intensive hiking and require some logistics to get back to the car. St. Anthony Gorge is easier to walk, and is vivid in vegetation and water. As it was only the beginning of the season (early April) , current... More

St Anthony Gorge is a little gem . Many people do not know of this.. Even our own resort rep. I discovered this doing research on the net prior to our trip to Crete. It was good fun & like a mini obstacle course. Not many people was around so it was out the touristry trap when we visited. would... More

We saw at least 8 griffon vultures swirling around above us. An amazing sight and definitely worth a visit, even if you're not a birder!

What a great hike. Wonderful views, fun ladders and ropes, caves, ponds with frogs. We are experienced hikers and had no problems with some of the concerns raised by other reviewers. If you like hiking then this is a must. At the lake we took the mountain road back - a bit of a climb but gorgeous views - about... More

What a great day out! Beware, the route is very uneven and there are several points with wooden ladders and ropes etc where you have to pull yourself up. As others have said, it takes about 2 hours to get to the end and then about another hour to get back. Take plenty of water, we took 1.5l each which... More
