Therisso Gorge

By pro

The canyon of Therissos or Eleftherios Venizelos is located near the city of Chania and is accessible all the way by car. The main gorge is 6 km long, while its flowing Kladisos River carries water from the White Mountains to the beach of Nea Chora. Its vertically imposing rocky slopes and verdant vegetation have nothing to envy from the rest of the great canyons of Crete. A visit to this is combined with a stroll in the village of Therissos at the beginning of the canyon, which is built at an altitude of 580m.
