Tsoutsouros Canyon, by Tsoutsouras, Crete

The canyon of Tsoutsouras is located in Tsoutsouras village and is one of the many inaccessible canyons of the area. It starts at position Sfakias and it's exit is located near the settlement, in Larinaki area, and at first glance it causes awe.

The canyon, although it is quite short (1.5km), is an ideal place for canyoning for beginners. The only way to access it is by using ropes, as there are 12 descents (rappels), the largest of which is 30m high. Most rappels are located near the exit of the gorge, where it deepens and rocks get amazing colors.During the spring, there is water and rappelling down the waterfalls is an amazing experience.

Troulla Gorge

Troulla Gorge (Tsoutsouraki), Tsoutsouras, CreteJust a few meters in the west, the very narrow and smaller gorge of Troulla is formed. Being shorter than the Tsoutsouros canyon, it has attracted the attention of the canyoners and is very impressive with more than 15 beautiful waterfalls along its bed, the largest being 15m high. Because it is next to the Canyon of Tsoutsoura is is geologically similar and the first team that crossed it, jokingly named it Tsoutsouraki, i.e. small Tsoutsouras. Its entrance is just west of the impressive dome (troulla) of Tsoutsoura at the area Meli Lakos (Honey’s Pit) and it’s exit at the area Staoussa next to the village.
