This was a day trip although the actual hike through the Gorge was 2-3 hours, as it was a long drive from the pick up and drop off points. There were two guides who gave information during the drive, but the hike was independent so everyone could go at their own pace. The scenery was fantastic, and even though it was basically a slight downhill hike, the trail was mostly uneven rocks which made it a bit challenging. But lots of fun and definitely worth it.

Not for the faint-hearted. Having walked the Samarian Gorge some years ago we thought that this would be a lot easier as it's less than half the distance. But imagine walking along pebbles, such as those on Chesil Beach for 5 miles and you'll start to see what it's like. Our calves took about 3/4 days to recover! But is was a wonderful experience and the dip in the Libyan Sea afterwards was wonderful. Wear good shoes - walking boots are advisable not trainers.

7 KM didn't sound far, but when walking on soooo many rocks, it is! Good thing that we had over 2 hours to do this! I didn't know we were going to stop by the beach for over an hour or else I would have brought my bathing suit too. Other than that, I definitely would do this again!

The tour was late starting. When the tour set off it rained heavily. We took the bus to a cafe close to the gorge and were offered a cheese pancake with honey. The organizer announced the gorge walk would not happen but not to worry because there was a plan b. Plan b was a trip to a ruined castle...
