There, at a height of 1.100m, you will begin the 16km walk through the longest and most beautiful gorge in Europe. After the strenuous but spectacular walk, you will be conveyed by boat on an equally glorious trip from Agia roumeli, the village at the end of the gorge, to Chora Sfakion, where the bus will be waiting to take you back.

If you don’t wish to cross the whole of the gorge, you are able to follow an easier itinerary. For starters, you follow the same itinerary as the rest of the group until Ksyloskalo and you get to see the entrance to the gorge. You then return to the bus and continue to Sougia, where from you take the ferry to Agia Roumeli. After you reach Agia Roumeli you can walk for as long as you like, until the doors located 2 kilometres further in on the trail, after you have, of course, paid the 5€ entrance fee, or you can stay in Agia Roumeli, swim and later depart with the rest of the party, taking the same ferry back.
