Canyoning in Crete

Attention! The heavy rains of 2019 and 2020 have damaged many gorges and many paths have been destroyed so they are no longer accessible. You could inform us for such cases, so we update the listings in our website.
Petrigiari Gorge
(3 votes)

Petrigiari is a small and wild gorge located parallel to the wild gorge of Kakoperatos, at the south coastline of Central Crete, at Asterousia Range. The canyon is only accessible with technical (canyoning) equipment with the maximum rapel being about 15m. The gorge ends at an amazing tiny pebbly beach with caves and crystal clear deep blue water.

In order to access the entrance of the gorge, follow the road that heads west from Agios Nikitas monastery and Agios Antonios palm grove.
