Imbros Gorge Hike

KTA (11).png


Often described as an easy hike, this does not really mean that the nature in Imbros will be less spectacular than what you might see in other gorges in Crete!

Despite being much smaller in size than Samaria there are some very spectacular sections, especially the several very narrow passages

For a number of people (especially Australians and New Zealanders and to a lesser extent Brits) walking through the gorge of Imbros is almost a pilgrimage. Many people have had parents or grand-parents who fought with the Allied troops in Crete and walked through the gorge in May 1941 in order to escape the island to Egypt.

From there the path descends gently into the gorge heading south. It is never steep and not particularly difficult (running shoes are good enough for this walk) but as everywhere in Crete the path is stony so you need to pay attention to where you put your feet.

Because the gorge is fairly narrow (under 2 meters wide at one point!) and has plenty of trees you will have shade most of the time.
