For those seeking some serious exercise coupled with staggering scenery, exploring the gorges is the way to go. Both the Kourtaliotis gorge and the world-famous Samaria Gorge, Europe’s largest gorge, are sights to behold. If you choose to hike them, be well-prepared and expect a challenging yet highly rewarding day of striking nature as you follow a route towards the sea. Admire the scents of herbs, the wild flora, and the rocky paths along the way.
Enjoy a relaxing atmosphere and the laid-back charm of Plakias, Beach Crete. Book your accommodation at Alianthos Garden Hotel and use it as an ideal base for daily excursions, extreme activities, and an ultimate taste of the Cretan grandeur.
