Amazing views. Super hot in July, but a great workout and totally worth it!!

Fun hike! We saw people climbing to the top of the rock but it looked a little risky. We opted to not do that but checked out the little church below which was an awesome to explore.

Incredible view! Great hike. The sun was pretty relentless but we were prepared with hats, sunglasses and sunscreen.

So beautiful!

Incredible views of the sea!

Moderate trail due to lots of steps. There is a difficult climb to the top of the rock. On the back (west) side of the rock there is a hidden church.

Easy to moderate out and back hike in Meteora, Greece. Starts just outside of downtown Kalambaka and continues to the Monastery of the Holy Trinity. From there you can continue on to the St. Stephens Abbey on the road. Trail is clear with a few steep spots. Saw several other people picnicking on flat rocks off the trail and sunning themselves. There are several shaded areas and amazing views of Meteora.

Really nice trail. Basically only going downhill with nicely prepared stairs for the first cpuple of hundred meter drop. Good to wall. The is one bus in the morning getting you up their from Chania and one ferry at approx 17:30 to get you back to a different bus stop.

An absolute must-do if you are a hiker and want to experience Crete in it's mountainous glory - I'll echo the sentiments of the others! My wife and I hiked this trail last June (2017) on a vacation tour through Greece and Crete. The hike begins high in the mountains (what a ride just to get up there) and for the first few miles it is a winding decent down the slope of the mountain. With all the busses dropping off the tour groups it begins very busy but after the first few miles each team sets their own pace and the lack opens up. As the mountain portion ends, the remainder of the decent is following the path of a dried river bed - so lots of rocks and boulders as the terrain! The mountainous scenery and the cliffside vistas are truly spectacular! I do recommend you wear suitable hiking footwear (not just sneakers) as I had proper hiking boots and was described as a nimble centaur hopping through the pathway, my wife ended up losing both toenails (after a few months) from the improper footwear damaging her feet on the cobbly downwards riverbed. Truly an unparalleled adventure to remember!

This is a super pretty hike along the edge of the caldera.

Done in June 2009.

A great big hike downhill until you reach the sea. Easy to do but long. Mostly loose gravel. The wall climbing goats are amazing ;-)

I did this hike with my 19 year son in July 2017. It was definitely the highlight of our Crete vacation. It was not a hard hike but you constantly had to look down as it was very rocky. You had to make sure you stepped right so you didn't hurt yourself. Other than that it was definitely worth it. I highly recommend this hike. Loved every part of the hike as it was very beautiful and scenic. The boat ride from Agia Roumelli to Sougia was also amazing. We used Diana's Travel in Chania. They picked us up & dropped us off at our hotel - Porto Platanias. The guide was great!

Perfect temperature for the hike at the end of March. My friend’s mother came along as a first time hiker. We went slow with a lot of stops but completed the hike in about 3 hours. She is now able to say she is a hiker!

beautiful track with amazing views. the mountains are breathtaking and you can see the details of how the gorges were created.
Long decent to start with as you only get the narrow gorge part around 7km into the walk. really worth it if you are in Crete.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING must do hike while in Crete. Highlight of our 2 week Athens, Crete, Mykinos and Santorini trip!! Tough on the knees. Highly recommend trekking poles and lots of food.Took my daughter(26) and me (64) four and 1/2 hours to get to the beach where we promptly jumped in!! Be sure try to do the last 3km through the old village to the beach which is only slightly downhill!!

The only thing that makes this a hard hike is the length. I have fragile knees and ankles but I took my time and went slow. I wish I had trekking poles and good ankle support but I did this hike just under 6 hours in trail tennis shoes. I was sore for about 3 days. Views were amazing and the ocean at the end is truly beautiful. Great hike, super exotic rock colors, clear pristine mountain streams, amazing ancient shrines and villages. Very cool. Bring snacks, maybe a sandwich and water, but there are fill up point along the way.

Did this 20 years ago, and loved it even more this time!

Beautiful views of town and harbor!

Amazing views

Great hike. Bring any food you need. Plenty of water along the route but perhaps bring electrolyte tablets to add to your bottles. Make sure to have stable good shoes.

I did this trek in early-October while staying in Oia, after an unforgettable ten days sailing the Cyclades. I started in Oia and went a little more than halfway, where I rendezvoused with a friend who was staying in Fira; we walked back together to Oia for dinner. This is a walk-hike mix trail with just enough incline to keep your heart pumping. You're exposed the entire time and I underestimated the need for water -- bring a good two liters. This is a perfect trek for beginner hikers and a must-do for photographers. The distant perspective of Oia (and I imagine Fira) is absolutely stunning. I didn't do this during sunrise or sunset, but will make a point of it next time (although watching the sunrise and sunset anywhere in Santorini are among the best in the world!). There's a bus that runs between Fira-Oia and Oia-Fira throughout the day, so you can make this a one-way hike, if you want. Just check the bus schedule -- and know they won't run on time; you're in Greece!

A must-do when visiting Crete! Beautiful views, well maintained and after the hike you can chill in the sea, so take swimming clothes! :)

Did this as my first solo hike. So enjoyable! I began at 6pm and met my family for dinner in ammoudi bay at 830pm (drenched in sweat). Beautiful views of the caldera from high on a ridgeline. The path itself is mostly cobblestone, with some dirt path, ending in the white marble sidewalks of Oia. I recommend doing this as a sunset hike, if you can stand the heat!
