Panagia Canyon Canyoning with pickup from Heraklion

Panagia Canyon Canyoning with pickup from Heraklion

A small but beautiful canyon, located in the same area as Tsoutouros canyon. Panagia is one of the narrowest canyons on the island, with completely vertical walls. It is an easy one, with small abseils but its impressive lapped walls will leave you breathless. The approach is a challenging uphill on rocky terrain (some scrambling), but when we reach the top and enter the canyon, the abseils are continuous and soon we find ourselves inside a narrow corridor formed by the impressive walls. This is a beautiful and fun, technical canyon, suitable for beginners and children.

The 18 km hike starts in Xyloskalo. You will discover a wide variety of fauna and flora, much of which is unique and found exclusively on this island, and you see the Kri-Kri, the wild Cretan goat. The ever-changing view and the wonderful scent of pinewood and Cretan Herbs make this walk, which is rocky at some points, a wonderful experience and make all the effort worthwhile. The isolated, deserted village of Samaria makes the ideal place for a rest before you continue to the 'Iron Gates', the point where the canyon walls are so close that they almost touch each other. Enjoy the fantastic rock formations and take advantage of this unique chance to taste the fresh , cold spring water. The walk ends at the small fishing village of Ayia Roumeli, with plenty of tavernas for you to enjoy a tasty meal and that well-earned drink. Relax on the beach and cool off in the turquoise waters of the Libyan Sea.
