You walk down a beautiful gorge and that's the best bit. Took us 3 hours with photo stops and lunch break. The path was very rocky (wasn't last time I did the walk), decent shoes recommended. If you arrive by car and stop at the...More

Very nice place. Same environment as Samaria but fewer and easier walking. Ideal for families with children, older people or those who cannot spend too many hours. Plus that there is shadow almost all the time

As we were with a 2.5 year old kid, we went to the end of the Gorge and had a walk around 2 hours. It was quite easy for a kid. However we did not try all Gorge and not sure if all places are...More

We went to Imbros gorge earlier today and it was absolutely beautiful. A stunning walk and not as busy as other tourist destinations. We walked at a relatively quick pace and finished the walk in just over two hours. I would recommend walking from imbros...More

We arrived early (8am) and parked at the bottom of the gorge. Enjoyable walk with few people around and took us just over 3 hours to walk up and back down the gorge, no need to pay for taxis and a really straightforward route.

This walk is very good. If you want to walk downhill there are more than one place to park your car. We parked about 1 km from the park entrance, where most people park as it is the first spot you meet when travelling from...More

Great hiking experience for someone who isn't looking to spend a whole day hiking something like the Samaria gorge. This is just enough hiking time (~ 3 hours) with beautiful scenery.

Imbros. With a 3 year old I would suggest starting bottom end as not so steep and actually quite easy. You would also get some nice views if you walked up for say 45 mins. Remember there is an entry fee, but small. There is... More
