The impressive gorge of Aradena starts from the Lefka Ori north of the village of Aradena, and ends up in the sea, south of Aradena. You may walk down through the Aradena Gorge and exit near Marmara on the south coast. There is a path from Aradena that allows you to descend into the gorge. The walk may take 3 to 4 hours as it is 7km from the Aradena entrance to the sea. You should not attempt the walk without ample water, boots, and arrangements to be picked up at the walk's end. A path at the bottom goes to Marmara beach, Finikas, Loutro, and Hora Sfakion. The coastal path is narrow and quite dangerous in places between Loutro and Hora Sfakion. Alternatively, you can walk to Loutro and take the boat to Hora Sfakion.
