An easy and pleasant hike along Imbros Gorge in the area of Sfakia in southwestern Crete, that starts from Imbros village at 850m a.s.l and ends in Komitades village at 200m.
Imbros gorge is small but very impressive. It is 8 km long with tall walls that at a point get only 2 m wide making the gorge seem like a tunnel!
At the end of the gorge, we get on the bus and visit Frangocastelo and its beautiful beach. We set off back to Heraklion late in the afternoon.
