Hiking in Crete



Zoniana Gorge
(1 Vote)

The canyon of Zoniana is located south of Zoniana village. Starting at an altitude of 950m, it ends at the village at an altitude of 650m. Through the gorge runs the "serpentine" Oaxis river that has water till spring. The gorge is easily accessible and safe for hiking, as its slope is small. The rocks in many places are impressive, as they consist of many layers, while several “hang” from the vertical slopes at narrow points. In the last section, near the village, the walls open and the canyon transforms to a narrow valley.
