Imbros gorge tour starts from Kolymbari at 08:10, picking up everyone from the main road and arriving at the entrance of the gorge at 10:30. There you stop for a small breakfast, and around 11:00 you start hiking the gorge after you pay a 2,5€ entrance fee.
Imbros gorge tour hiking is much easier than Samaria. The hiking lasts 2 to 3 hours and can be easily walked by children as well! Most of the hiking is under shade and the gorge is open all year round! That means gorge hiking lovers can walk Imbros gorge when Samaria is closed (end of October up to early May).
The Cretan landscape is amazing combining beautiful beaches, gorges, wild sceneries, mountains, and old villages. The Sfakia area is one of the wildest parts of Crete and because of the uniqueness of the landscape, it was never easily accessed by the enemy (Turks, German army e.t.c.). This alone is a reason to visit the gorge and Chora Sfakion village by the sea! The route to Chora Sfakion gives a breathtaking view! Another reason is to taste the traditional delicacies like the sfakian pie!
South Crete is different from the north and you cannot have a whole picture of the island if you do not go to the magical Cretan south!
