The Gorges of the Rethymnon Prefecture
The district of Rethymnon extends from the mountain Lefka Ori to the mountain Psiloritis.
Gorges of extraordinary beauty traverse the mountains and mountain ranges of Rethymnon:
Plakias. Just 10 m wide at its entrance, the beginning of this gorge is very narrow, however, it widens out to 600 m.
Rethymnon town to the south up on the hills. The gorge is literally covered by a blanket of greenery; an unspoiled and untouched place between trees and plants.
Rethymnon and a few km north-east of Spili. The first lower part of the gorge will entail walking through some water.
Samaria Gorge. It is crossed by the Platanes river and its impressive rock faces and a few rather difficult points of access make this a particularly interesting walk.
