Day 2 – Walk through the Imbros Gorge

After a hearty breakfast this morning, you’ll put on your hiking boots and head to the remarkable Imbros Gorge. This hidden gem, often overshadowed by its larger counterpart, Samaria, offers a quieter and more intimate experience, allowing you to take things at your own pace. We’ll arrange a taxi to take you to the entrance of the gorge. Then, equipped with a hiking map and picnic lunch you will hike through the stunning five-mile canyon. At you emerge from the gorge, freshen up in one of the charming taverns before embarking on the more relaxing 5km stroll back to Chora Sfakion.
