Day 1

Enjoy a guided 16km hike through the longest and most impressive of Europes limestone gorges, a magnificent example of Cretes many gorges, stretching from the White Mountains down to the Libyan sea. We leave early in the morning and passing through several beautiful villages we reach the plateau of Omalos. Our hike will last approximately 6 hours and will take us, along a reathtaking and constantly changing landscape, to Agia Roumeli, a laid back coastal village by the South coast, accessible only by boat. The tour will allow you a chance to experience this must-see natural phenomenon at a slower pace, attended to by a pecialized guide. At the base of the gorge you can enjoy a refreshing swim and lunch at one of the local tavernas. After an hours sail to the nearby port, you will be transferred back to Chania in the evening.


The walk is long and strenuous and the tour is only suitable for guests that are fit and have some experience in walking long distances.

Planning excellence

My kids (18 & 20) and I had the most amazing 2-week trip to Greece May/June 2023. We were fortunate to have been introduced to Anthony Alagiah, who came highly recommended through a friend and colleague. I’m a researcher by nature, love planning trips and like to make very purposeful choices. What I lacked was local, expert perspective, and felt I wasn’t getting thorough, objective advice from my usual online sources. I was looking for a professional who would work with me to collaborate, share options, and guide our choices. Anthony has a network of colleagues with Antelope Travel and affiliated agencies throughout Greece who gave timely advice and knew what hotels and excursion providers could be relied on for consistent, quality experiences. Our vacation was impeccably planned from the moment we arrived. The communications were excellent not only during planning but while we were in Greece. We had a clear itinerary, with details, contact names and numbers for every step of our trip - everything from start to finish ran smoothly and we felt very well cared for. The hotel choices, tours/guides and restaurant recommendations were excellent. Overall, it was the trip of a lifetime, and the planning from start to finish exceeded our expectations.

The Perfect Greek Vacation

Me and my Girlfriend took a trip to Greece with Antelope Travel and it was nothing short of perfect. Their driver and staff were super helpful, polite, and warm. We gave them a few ideas and they turned it into an amazing itinerary that was both packed with fun things to do and good recommendations and flexibility to allow us to discover our destinations in Greece to the fullest. We highly recommend their services and we will be going back to them for our next Greece vacation!
