Nearby Gorges

On this page you will find a summary of the gorges located near Vamos. For each gorge there is short description, maps and additional information. The Samaria Gorge is possible to book as an excursion through our tourist office.
Other gorges, like Imbros, Aradena and Diktamos are usually walked independently by our guests (full information can be provided by our office). However, if you prefer we can arrange a guide for you (at least one day’s notice is required).

Each book contains several descriptions of walks with detailed maps and many colourful pictures. The intention is that you will be able to cover a relatively small area on foot, and to find the local paths, small churches, villages, the surrounding nature etc.
