Tsoutsouros gorge is one of the most beautiful technical canyons in Asterousia Mountains on south Crete. It is ideal for canyoning as it is easy to cross and quite narrow mainly at its end. It is well belayed, perfect for the training of new explorers. After you’ve crossed its middle, it gets steeper and narrower, with bigger descents and more beautiful rocks. We may find water until the beginning of summer and you can cross it throughout the year with no difficulty.  

The gorge ends at the south coast at Tsoutsouros village where we can swim and relax at the sandy beach, the restaurants and cafes.
