    Wild South – trekking in the Imbros Gorge, the haunted Frangokastello Castle and the beach.

    Tour description

    An expedition for explorers, i.e. trekking through the Imbros Gorge, and a wild south with a haunted castle and sunbathing on the Libyan Sea.

    ​Are you going to Crete and still wondering if you should take the risk and overcome the longest gorge in Europe – Samaria? But you don’t quite know if you can trust yourself and face this wonder of nature?

    We have the perfect solution for you. How about the Imbros Gorge, the “sister” of Samaria, but younger, easier and just as impressive?

    The trekking route is only 8 km long and is perfect for the less persistent or families with children who want to escape for a while to the world of nature, myth and history.

    It is also an unusual landscape for flora and fauna lovers, as many endemic flowers grow in this gorge.

    The spectacular location of the gorge and the fresh breezes add positive energy and willingness to contact nature and yourself.

    In addition, whoever finds time to admire this place during the walk will definitely make friends with many chamois who will not only trust us but also ask for a treat, so be prepared!!!

    After leaving the gorge, the attractions don’t end there. We will go by bus to the south coast and the beach of Frangokastello. Apart from the shallow, long, sandy beach, this area is known for the Venetian castle with a terrifying and mysterious history.

    On May 18, 1828, Frangocastello became the scene of a bloody battle between the Ottoman forces and the rebels. Do you want to know how battle ended?  What is revealed to the people of Crete each year on the anniversary of the day of the battle? You will learn by taking part in our tour.

    So if you like solving riddles and communing with nature, you can’t miss this trip.
