Therisso Gorge - Opposite Sector 4 © ERU

Crag features

Not as well known as the famous Samaria Gorge, Therisso Gorge is an impressive creation of nature very close to Chania city.

Therisso Gorge is located in the area of the picturesque Therisso village, which is in a distance of only 15km from Chania. A big advantage of the gorge is that it is easily accessible in its greater part, as the well paved road leading from Chania to Therisso village passes through the gorge.

Therisso Gorge is characterized by amazing natural beauty. When passing through the gorge, we can also visit the beautiful village of Therisso, a small picturesque village, which had an active role in the struggle for the independence of Crete from the Ottomans and its reunion with Greece. It was here that the historical Therisso Revolution took place in the beginning of the 20th century.

Approach notes

Drive on the main road from Chania towards Platinias. Turn left onto the main road that heads towards the hospital. That is the only sign that you will be able to read in English. Come to the stop sign and turn left then an immedate left at the next intersection. Follow that road until you come to the first stop light then turn left. Follow that road, then when you get to the next intersection "Y" stay to the left. follow that road all the way to Therrisso. In Greek the towns name look like this Φερισο just follow the signs that say that on it. All the climbs at about 14km out of Chania, 4-5km befor you reach the town. Most of the climbs are on the right hand side of the road.
