Trail Detailed Description

From the beach of Lissos (1), we begin to ascend for about 500 m, passing through hillside terraces, until the top of the eastern slope (2).

We then follow the trail on the rocky and bush-covered plateau and after 800 m we descend deep into the gorge of Lissos (3)

We follow the gorge for 1 km, until the exit point, where the small harbour of Sougia (4) is located.

Despite the small size of the gorge of Lissas (in height and length), the dense oleandersand the steep rocky slopes, add a special beauty to the route through the gorge.

Next, we follow the coastal road for 500 m, to the settlementof Sougia (5).
