Agiofarago" means "Gorge of Saints". This gorge used to be the shelter of the monks of the near-by Monasteries.  On the sea cliffs there are climbing routes that are bolt - protected as well as routes that require natural protection (on nuts etc), for all abilities.

Our experience and enthusiasm for rock climbing, gave some spectacular climbing routes on the cliffs and the rocks of the area.

We invite you to participate in this unique fun activity – Rock Climbing, which builds group spirit and self-confidence. 

 Just dare to do it and you will be amazed of what you can achieve!!!

Today we shall be transferred to the south area of Heraklion. We shall walk through the impressive gorge of Agiofarrago that is full of oleanders to reach a wonderful beach accessible only on foot or by the sea. On our way to the beach we shall visit the chapel of Agios Antonios and the cave - house of a monk, a local hero during the revolution of 1866.

At the beach we shall have time to relax before we put on our harnesses and helmets in order to participate in our most exhilarate activity – rock climbing. We shall be able to climb at least two climbing routes.

On our way back, we shall be impressed by the view of a natural lagoon connected underground with the sea!
