Gorges & Ravines

Sfakiano or Lagko or Vartholoma gorge

  Probably the most interesting gorge in flora is the Sfakian Gorge or Lagko (it is famous as the Gorge or Bartholomew)
  You can visit it in two ways:
  a) From the Porolagko situated southwards at a distance of 2 km from Chora Sfakion on the asphalt road to Chania. Up to the end of the gorge, the distance is 6,5 km and the walking on the watercourse is very smooth and lasts 3,5 hours including the return. At the end of the passage northwards, on a small elevation, there is an old sheepfold. You will also meet the little chapel of Apostle Paul that was built by the Sfakians in 1407.
  b) From the village of Imbros in Sfakia you walk for two hours before reaching the very beautiful cattlemen village called Kali Lakki that has been abandoned for years now. After walking for about half an hour from there, you meet the aforementioned chapel of Apostle Paul, and then walk on for another two hours before meeting the way out to the asphalt road.

Kladou Gorge

  This gorge is the wildest and most difficult of access in Crete. You need an experienced guide in order to walk through it. At certain points, you absolutely need a climbing rope for safety reasons and around two days available in order to be comfortably acquainted with the gorge.
  The last portion of the gorge and the coast are called Domata. The most beautiful and cleanest coast in Crete is situated there, with a sea of wonderful colours, covered by a very thin and shiny boil and the pine trees of the gorge reaching out to the coast.
  If there is no boat to transport you to Sougia or Agia Roumeli, you will go on eastwards with your hard walking for another 3 hours.
