Xyloskalo

Xyloskalo

At the entrance of the Samaria Gorge, at Xyloskalo there is a tourist pavilion with a view of majestic Mt. Gingilos. The descent starts at the Xyloskalo ("wooden ladder"), a stony way with wood railings, approx. 800 m with innumerable turns down to the ground of the gorge. The name Xyloskalo goes back to the Cretan freedom fighters who used big wooden ladders to get from the ravine up to the Omalos plateau.

Canyoning

Where no man has set foot before

Crete, with its high-relief landscape is a paradise for canyoning, a term that means exploring gorges using alpinism techniques.

This sport can be practiced in Crete even in winter, as there isn’t much rain and the temperature remains mild.
