Easy gorge hikes on Crete: The first thing people say when you tell them you go for the first time to Crete, is that you should walk the Samaria gorgeSince the Samaria gorge is very famous, it tends to get very busy here. The good news is, that we organise several easy gorge hikes on Crete. Especially when it is very hot and you want to walk a gorge, we have a number of alternatives for you. Gorges where you have plenty of shade on the go and where you do not need to walk endless distances.
