Platania gorge

This is a perfect destination to combine light hiking and adventurous canyoning. We will park our vehicles in an amazing photo spot, where we can admire the highest peaks of the Cretan mountains all around us, endless olive fields, small villages and the Libyan sea…

After taking a bit of time to enjoy the view, we gear up and our instructors give us a detailed briefing of the gear and its use, so that everyone feels safe and confident. Then, we start hiking down a breathtaking valley to reach the canyon we are about to explore. The hike is quite short and easy, but full of mesmerizing views.

In the canyon, we will walk our way between 5 different rappels. Each one is a different, super fun experience. Shortly before the exit we will enjoy the most impressive of them all, which is 55 meters high. We absolutely love this spot and we are sure you will love it too!

Along the way, we will have the time to admire the rich flora of the Cretan canyons, and probably some of the impressive fauna that finds shelter here. We will also pick a nice spot to have a light snack and taste some of the local products.
