(1 Vote)

The gorge of Goula is a technical canyon starting south of Kapetaniana village and ending at Agios Ioannis seaside settlement. Like the rest gorges of the area (Koumos, Gerakias, Valahas), it is impassable without canyoning equipment.

The access to the gorge is easier from the telephone antenna on the way to Agios Ioannis. The gorge has 18 rapels with the highest being 55m. There are also 25m, 15m, 13m and smaller rapels.

The length of the gorge reaches about 1700m and a team of 5 people needs about 5 hours to cross it. It is beautiful with wild and eerie rocks and is vegetated mainly with pine trees. It is generally dry.

The gorge can also be accessed by trekking from the right side and course takes 2:30 hours.
