The Imbros gorge is an 11 km long and the second most popular gorge for walkers in Crete after the Samaria Gorge. The walk begins at the small village of Imbros, 700 m above the sea level. Since the average walking time is about 2.5 hours, the relative easiness of the hike makes it an ideal walk for families with children. Although not as well-known as the famous Samaria Gorge, it is well worth seeing, because it is very picturesque as there are some very spectacular sections, especially the several very narrow passages. The narrowest point is only 1,6m wide!
