Not crowdy and great fun. It was exciting but not dangerous, put some sneakers on because you have to climb. We walked in the middle of the day but there is shadow so not too hot. Afterwards a bite in the taverna with good traditional food. Great souvlaki from the bbq.

Very good program . I just do not recommend for people with babies.It is a little dangerous, especially the bridge , very steep . There are two ways to get to the bridge and proceed in the direction of the river, although neither is very easy , the left "road" has less ups and downs and it is less high.... More

We visited the gorge on a very hot day, but as we were following the river on the left side (across the fist bridge) there was plenty of shade. Only pitty was that the road markings are limited. Although we walked quite a long distance we never came to the second bridge for the return on the other side of... More

First of all - there are two gorges "Agios Antonios" on Crete, one in the Rethymnon area (also referred to as Patsos gorge, subject of this topic) and one in Heraklion area - do not get confused, the other one is much further if you are staying on the west part of the island! Secondly - the gorge has two... More

On a tip we got during our quadsafari, we drove to the St Anthony Gorge (also known as the Patsos Gorge). We took a nice hike into the gorge but did not dare to go all the way due to some very steep steps. The gorge has a small river running through it and it streams all the way to... More

We had a great day walking st. Anthony gorge. My pregnant wife had a challenging hike, but as a grown man I found it thrilling. Fair warning: don't bring smaller kids, strollers, bad shoes (flip-flops) etc. Pack up. Water, some food and what else you need to keep yourself going.

The gorge is in the heart of the lush province of Amari. It is a pleasing walk down a wooded and shaded ravine and trekking in the gorge is very easy since it is welled looked after by the Forest Service. The path follows the course of a stream on its way down to the sea. In times when the... More
