Boriana Gorge - 4.2 out of 5 based on 9 votes

The lush canyon of Boriana (mainly known as Karanou Gorge) starts from the village Boriana and joins the River Mavropiliotis after 1800 meters in a nicely landscaped trail. Along the trail we meet a ruined watermill, caves, entrances of the old iron ore quarries (known locally as quarries of Averof), a charcoal furnace and galleries. The gorge is parallel to Kydoni Gorge and hiking is usually combined for both gorges.
