Small, beautiful with a touch of ...vultures!
This easy hike lasts one hour (and less than one for the downhill return) and is ideal to combine Cretan nature and a drive through the villages.
Driving through the beautiful landscapes of Kissamos region we will arrive at the quiet village of Deliana and the entrance of the gorge.
If we are lucky we will meet vultures and birds of prey while walking by the river.
Once we get back we can have a picnic in the shade of the plane trees or continue to a local village for a traditional meal.
Starting from Chania, we will head southwest towards Kissamos. It's a beautiful drive (37 km) in one of the most vegetated areas of Crete. Our small but beautiful gorge starts at Deliana and ends at Mesavlia and ends in Deliana. It is easy to walk both ways, while keeping an eye for the vultures that fly above.

This tour exceeded our expectations. Mel went out of her way to explain the many interesting things that make Crete a wonderful place to visit. A wonderful hike in the Mesavlia Gorge and a beautiful lunch on the peninsula afterward. We could not have asked for a better tour guide.
