Imbros Gorge

The gorge of Imbros is the second most popular gorge for walkers in Crete after the gorge of Samaria. The scenery is beautiful and the relative easiness of the hike makes it an ideal walk for families with children. The walk is not particularly strenuous and can be completed in 2-3 hours.The gorge ends at the village of Komitades, after that we board on the bus and head east to Frangokastello.

Frangokastello is a Venetian castle of the 14th century which was built near the the south coastline of Crete in order to protect the Venetians from pirates and local rebels. Below the castle, there is a beach where the guests will have free time of about 1:30 hours and will be able to enjoy the sea and have a snack at the cantine. At around 17:00 we depart from Frangokastello and head back to Chania.
