Aposelemis gorge: Eye Travel hiking / walking tour

A perfect alternative for people who find Samaria too early or too far. A good balance between hiking and walking. Even children love this adventurous hike.

In 2000 we, Eye Travel, discovered a gorge near Hersonissos and started organizing tours in small groups (max 20 pers) through this gorge guided by one of the Eye Travel team.

This gorge is about 8 km long, takes around 3,5 hours and has some obstacles on the way down. You will see untouched nature, some birds of prey, vultures,... The real Cretan flora and fauna.

You can book this tour exclusively with us, Eye Travel. See some of the pictures to get an impression.

After the walking/hiking part, we bring you to a traditional taverna, to use the toilet and enjoy a small lunch. The unique change to relax and to share your experience with your guide and the group.

This tour is a must when you are on Crete !

Fantastic trip— must do

We did this with our 8 year old son. We were a little worried initially but he (and all of us really) lives it. If your child is not particularly active, then perhaps not for you but otherwise I think kids and parents will love this. 
Sophie, our guide, was wonderful too and very helpful with some of our group members who found some parts of the walk difficult. 

The tour ends with lunch at Zorbas tavern, a family run restaurant. After that long walk, we were really hungry and had the most wonderful lunch served by Amelia’s (“mamma”) team. Our son called it “the best food he had eaten in Crete”.

Aposelemis gorge walk

This was a good day trip within easy reach of Hersonissos. The gorge itself was beautiful, and with no visitors at all except our group. It was a peaceful walk (quite a scramble at times) far from the crowds on the beaches. The trip itself was well-organised with a knowledgeable guide and the lunch afterwards was delicious. The day we did the walk, the weather was cool and I don't think it would have been pleasant in hot weather. You would need a fair degree of mobility for this walk, there were a few sections where we had to scramble over rocks. I recommend this trip, and Eye travel.
