An absolutely beautiful Gorge to explore close to Rethymnon. There are 2 entrances near the top that take you on a gentle hike down through the Gorge. There is lots to explore on the way down. There are several churches built into the hill side...More

If you don't have the time or stamina to hike Samaria Gorge, this is a perfectly nice alternative, located near Rethymnon. It's about 4 km long walk, one way, and so we opted to start at the lower elevation (towards the sea), in a town...More

There is a tourist bus that goes from Rethymnon up the gorge to a military museum & there are at least 2 stops for people to go into the gorge. The leaflet for the bus service is available all over the town.
