This is a relatively easy downhill walk. Easy to access from Hora Sfakia by taking the local bus to Imbros village. It is good to visit one of the cafes at Imbros before the start - maybe even for breakfast. The walk is full of twists and turns, with varied scenery. It is best to do the walk in the... 更多
We were in Crete just outside of tourist season and Samaria Gorge was closed. However, wanting to get out for a walk and see the fabulous famous gorges of Crete, we found Imbros. We drove down to Komitades and then took a taxi back up to Imbros. The road between these two towns is worth doing, even if you don't... 更多
Well worth the €2 entry, I enjoyed a pleasant 1.5 hour walk down the gorge with my 11 year old son. My wife kindly dropped us at ΕΣΤΙΑΤΟΡΙΟ "ΠΟΡΟΦΑΡΑΓΓΟ" restaurant just south of Imbros and met us in a Taverna in Komitades just up the hill from the entrance near Dioneses Taverna. It's fairly easy walking downhill and would take... 更多
Not to be missed walk provided you have sturdy footwear and also a hiking pole if you are not tremendously steady on your feet as the walk is of scree, pebbles and small rocks. wonderful scenery and lots of interesting plants, geology and birds. Welcoming taverna at the bottom.
It's not a hard walk as a lot of it is a slight decline towards the coast. We wore good walking sandals but should have worn good trainers or boots. Still we managed and it was warm and dry. Take a picnic drinks and food if you want to make a day of it. It took us two hours and... 更多

If you don't have time or strenght for Samaria , you have the option to do Imbros gorge. Half a day its enough. You have to go with your car up to Imbros vilage , and park the car to one of the tavern , where you have to pay the parking or to buy something , a meal ,... 更多
Although not as well known as its big cousin (Samaria Gorge) this is just as interesting and impressive in its own way and is not to be missed whilst staying in Sfakia. The bus ride from Sfakia to the start is worth every cent and then the decent through the gorge is very rewarding.
The route takes about 2hours which is much easier than in case of Samaria and - as we read in lonely planet guide - not less beautiful - it was really great adventure - especially taking the "taxi" to the top of the gorge :)
