Exploring the exotic Preveli gorge
An amazing adventurous outing in the most exotic place of Crete!
If you love river trekking or just wandering by the water, you’ll find the perfect environment for that in Preveli gorge.
Wade through the Kourtaliotis river waters towards one of the most beautiful beaches of Crete, the “Preveli beach”, and admire the unique scenery. An idyllic setting made up of perpendicular walls, huge rocks, freshwater pools, small waterfalls and dense clusters of endemic palms.
The 3,2 Km circular hike stretches north along the west sheer sides of Preveli gorge, and then drops east to the river bed. Wandering through a maze of enormous rocks and dense vegetation, it reaches Preveli beach, before returning to the starting point via a steep path with panoramic views over the south coast.
