Detailed description

Feel the force of nature close to your skin when canyoning through Kourtaliotiko

The Greek island of Crete is a popular holiday destination in the Mediterranean Sea. Justifiable when you look at the varied landscape. The alternation between lush green plains and barren rocky slopes, but also stony areas and overgrown mountain valleys, high plateaus and gorges with winding caves, historic town centres in venerable age and modern forms are aspects that will make you remember your holiday. This paradisiacal island with its mild climate in the south of Greece is surrounded by a beautiful coastline from which the beautiful Mediterranean Sea begins.

This canyoning tour takes you to abseil down the waterfall in the gorge of Kourtaliotiko in the mountains near the centre of Crete. This striking landscape panorama is an impressive sight to be seen alone. The natural stream runs through the middle of the mountain and lies between steeply rising rocky slopes. Where others are already satisfied with what they have seen, you would like to go a step further. With an experienced guide you start the challenging descent by canyoning in Kourtaliotiko to the whitewater, in the middle of the waterfalls. They get to feel the power of the masses of water as they rush down from more than 20 metres above the stones and continue their way steadfastly after a powerful impact. You will be surrounded by fine water in the air, where the light breaks into small rainbows and by thundering waterfalls at the same time, which can be an awesome impression due to this great contrast.

The highlight of canyoning in the Kourtaliotiko Gorge is a small swimming tour directly to the place of impact of the waterfall, in order to be as close as possible to the untamed power. Trekking enthusiasts will also get their money's worth on the little river hike through the Kourtaliotiko gorge. A truly exhilarating experience climbing in Crete, which you should not miss if you are looking for an exciting adventure, such as the breathtaking canyoning climbing sport at Kourtaliotiko in Greece.
