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.
