The canyon of Imvros is located at the prefecture of Chania, close to Sfakia It is not organised, but has a well laid path, so you don’t need a guide. This was once the only “road” to Sfakia, so in essence in many parts we are walking on a well made stone paved road. The length is 8 kms. Spectacular, and with narrow passages, the canyon comprises of rocky formations. Thw wild flora is intense, ruling everywere, with trees exploding literally out of rocks and stone.

It begins after the last houses in Imvros and ends at the Komitades village. The first part passes through a forest of cypress, bushes and maples. In less than an hour’s hike we reach the middle of the canyon, where thre is a venetian puddle of water. From this part on, the most impressive route begins, with the walls of the canyon nearly touching each other in many parts.

The trail is not very hard, takes around 3 hours, and the first exit of the canyon of Imvros leads to the asphalt road that goes to Sfakia.

USEFUL INFORMATION

Visitors should know that there are no fountains, and no people selling water in the canyon, so bringing enough water with you is strongly recommended.
