Canyoning in Crete is an amazing experience you shouldn't skip when visiting the island of the Minoans. Using a great variety of techniques, you will be descending the rocky canyons of the mountains of Crete.
Grab the opportunity to walk through spectacular gorges, abseil from 70 meters high rocks down, scramble and climb, jump and swim. Canyoning in Crete, even during the summer months when the canyons are dry, is an awesome activity!
The best way to explore the fun side of Crete is by canyoning! Your experienced instructor will teach you how to stay safe and how to use the equipment, and then he will take you to the most amazing places in southern Heraklion to enjoy both the canyons and the views of the Cretan mountains. An unforgettable day awaits you while canyoning in Crete!
There are two different canyons to follow depending on your experience and the level of fun you are looking for. Whichever you choose, rest assured that you will remember this day forever!
Two canyons to choose from Kavousi with a maximum abseil of 25 m. or Valacha with a maximum abseil of 65 m.
