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.

The Gorge of Cyclamen, Agios Georgios Gorge (Saint George) or Gorge Vandes is located at the north slopes of the White Mountains. It starts from the settlement Aletrouvari (altitude 300m), passes east of the village of Agios Georgios and ends at the village Vandes (altitude 50 m). The straam collects water from the area of Drakona and there are places where small ponds are formed.
