Owner description: A long and pleasant walk along the gorge through breathtaking scenery, past waterfalls, fountains, deserted chapels and monasteries, to an authentic palm beach at Preveli. You can even catch a glimpse of a lammergeier if you are lucky. Watch out though for slips and trips - stout shoes essential.

“amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2013

Amazing place with waterfalls and small church at the end, but I reccomend to go there in the evening or early morning, when are not so many people.

“A cool breeze in the heat.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013

Cretan wild nature at its best.On our way to the fishing village of Plakias and after a hot day driving, trekking through this wonderful gorge with a sea breeze slapping our face was just ....the best thing we did. Wear trekking shoes and a hat!!!

“Head to the river and walk through”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2013

You can hike through the gorge and along the river and we recommend. It takes a bit of time, but head down the hill, head right and get to the river..a bit of climbing down and then you are on the river..walk through the river and see the plants, wildlife and beauty

“Stunning Gorge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2013

Beautiful scenery, flora and fauna. Quite hairy to drive through the hairpin bends in a small car, but worth the white knuckles!
