Helidonia or Drimiskos

The gorge of Drimiskos got its name from the homonymous village, located 15km northeast of the beach of Preveli, in south Rethimno Prefecture and 35 km south from Rethymno Town.


Essentially the gorge starts from the village and goes initially southwestern for 3,5km, continues then south to meet the Libyan Sea at Drimiskianos beach, a few hundred meters east of the famous beach of Preveli.

It is extremely difficult whoever tries to cross over because there are not any sings and crossing requires good physical condition and the total length of Drimiskos gorge exceeds 5km.

We recommend that you start walking the gorge about the middle to Drimiskianos beach, where the degree of difficulty is low. The surrounding mountains and generally the region have little vegetation, but in the canyon the hiker enjoys the green and rugged landscape.
