Action & Adventure in the Gorge of Saints
The island of Crete is blessed with one of the most beautiful natural environments in the world. What better way to celebrate it than with an action-packed day of hiking, swimming and climbing in the famous Gorge of Saints.
Your day will consist first of a hike across the gorge. The whole area is surrounded by pink oleanders, indigenous wildlife, and stunning panoramic views of the sea. There’ll be a bit of climbing and scrambling involved — but don’t worry. It’s an easy trek perfect for the whole family.
Then, you’ll slowly start making your way down to Agiofarago Beach, a secluded cove that once used to shelter the monks of the nearby monasteries. After arriving at the beach, you’ll be blown away by its beauty. The crystal-clear waters of the Libyan Sea are some of the purest in the world, perfect for a refreshing dive after your hike.
Afterwards, you’ll be taken to visit a secret cave — the former house of a monk and local hero of the Greek Revolution. There, you’ll discover a natural lagoon that connects the cave with an underground passage to the endless sea.
Perfect for those who like getting out into nature, our Action & Adventure in the Gorge of Saints is a sun-soaked day for all!
SPECIAL TIP: Don’t forget the essentials! Bring your daypack, trekking or sport shoes, water bottle, hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, swimsuit and a small towel.
