The West Crete area, in the Chania region, is filled with natural surprises sites, with discoverie's places to make, on foot, by bike, with the family or for more experienced hikers or cyclists.
While the Samaria Gorge
are the best known but which access is closed outside the beautiful season, we offer here other walks in the region of Odihogavalo in any season.
Below are the Imbros Gorge.
Simply superb and close to Odihogavalo ... in the area!
A ride that lasts between two hours to two and a half hours, with a drop of 650 meters and several cool bottlenecks (quite accessible), in the heart of Cretan nature.
An invitation to discover the various plants and flowers that grow here and that you have not necessarily seen before.
The entrance to this ride is not free (a cabin near the village of Imbros will issue the ticket for a sum of 2.5 euros). Keep the receipt that will be requested at the exit of the gorge.
On your arrival you can have a drink in one of the local tavernas.
