Hiking in Crete



Attention! The heavy rains of the last years 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.
Trafoulas Gorge
(11 votes)

The gorge Trafoulas in Asterousia Range is formed to the southeast of the village Krotos and empties on the beach of Psili Ammos in South Cretan Sea. Most hikers walk in a small part of it, from the point where they park their car to the beach, while the gorge starts in higher altitude. However, even in this small part the gorge is very impressive, with very narrow walls and imposing rocks. Locals say that the narrow part is called Pidimatou Gorge (Jumping gorge) as one goat can jump from one side to the other.
