This is a relatively easy downhill walk. Easy to access from Hora Sfakia by taking the local bus to Imbros village. It is good to visit one of the cafes at Imbros before the start - maybe even for breakfast. The walk is full of twists and turns, with varied scenery. It is best to do the walk in the... More

We were in Crete just outside of tourist season and Samaria Gorge was closed. However, wanting to get out for a walk and see the fabulous famous gorges of Crete, we found Imbros. We drove down to Komitades and then took a taxi back up to Imbros. The road between these two towns is worth doing, even if you don't... More

Imbros gore is not so difficult as Samaria gore. Ticket only 2 euros. Length about 8km. Easy to go there, there is a lot of tavernas in gore ending point village Comitades. Several tavernas offer pickup taxiservices to starting point Imbros village. Four person 20€.

Our time was limited on Crete so we skipped Samaria Gorge for this hike. Glad we did as is was the perfect duration and level of strenuousness for this 50-something average-fitness woman. The entrance fee is ridiculously low, the scenery lovely, the goats absolutely amazing. But do bring water, sun protection, and proper footwear for the gently descending and slippery... More

Well worth the €2 entry, I enjoyed a pleasant 1.5 hour walk down the gorge with my 11 year old son. My wife kindly dropped us at ΕΣΤΙΑΤΟΡΙΟ "ΠΟΡΟΦΑΡΑΓΓΟ" restaurant just south of Imbros and met us in a Taverna in Komitades just up the hill from the entrance near Dioneses Taverna. It's fairly easy walking downhill and would take... More

Not to be missed walk provided you have sturdy footwear and also a hiking pole if you are not tremendously steady on your feet as the walk is of scree, pebbles and small rocks. wonderful scenery and lots of interesting plants, geology and birds. Welcoming taverna at the bottom.

It's not a hard walk as a lot of it is a slight decline towards the coast. We wore good walking sandals but should have worn good trainers or boots. Still we managed and it was warm and dry. Take a picnic drinks and food if you want to make a day of it. It took us two hours and... More
