Hiking the 16km-long Samaria Gorge, one of Europe's longest canyons, is high on the list of must-dos for many Crete visitors. There’s an undeniable raw beauty to the canyon with its soaring cliffs and needle-nose passageways. The hike begins at an elevation of 1230m just south of Omalos and ends in the coastal village of Agia Roumeli

After way way too long, I decided to get myself out yesterday. Dusted off the camera, unfurled the hiking trousers, shook the spiders out of my boots and headed into Snowdonia.

 

Decided to head to Beddgelert, a fabulous drive out and a lovely little town with a lot more going for it than being the alleged burial place of a misunderstood dog!

 

You can follow the river along a park which takes you to the Aberglaslyn Gorge through which the Glaslyn river swirls and rushes downhill cascading into rocks and gushing over waterfalls. The path can be a bit treacherous at times, very uneven, rocky and slippy but it is dramatic and beautiful and well worth a wander.

  

I really wish I had taken a shot of the approach to this location. After a short walk along a stream that was flowing rather slowly when were there, you approach a huge log jam that crosses the entire stream. It's up to 10-15 feet high and there is no way around, only over. So with all of our gear in tow, we climbed our way over the top to find this amazing view.

 

There is a waterfall a little beyond what you can see here, but the approach requires going through some very deep water. Since none of us had geared up for a swimming approach, we settled for the canyon view.

Kaligandaki river is older than the Himalayas. It divides two massive mountains Dhaulagiri 8167m and Annapurna 8091m of the Himalayas Nepal. The river has its source on the border of Tibet/Nepal. When it reaches the south it becomes a tributary of the Ganges, the holy river of the Hindus. Trekkers follow the trail or jeep track along the river.

If you go to all of them at every chance, this one is not in the top, but its a good daytrip if you are in the area.

East of the town of Moab, Utah, the Colorado River flows through a sandstone gorge for about 26 miles.

 

The Upper Colorado River Scenic Byway follows the river through the gorge, offering amazing views of the river, gorge and valleys connecting to it.

The Verdon Gorge in south-eastern France is a river canyon that is often considered to be one of Europe's most beautiful. It is about 25 kilometers long and up to 700 meters deep. It was formed by the Verdon River, which is named for its startling turquoise-green colour. The gorge is lined with stunning view points. This was the last one we stopped at before catching a plane back home.

The Radovna river is responsible for cutting the Vintgar gorge for over 1.5 kilometers, and up to 100 meters deep. Nice wooden galleries just a couple meters above the water make for a perfect view of the gorge.

The Vikos Gorge (Greek: Φαράγγι του Βίκου) is a gorge in the Pindus Mountains of northern Greece. It lies on the southern slopes of Mount Tymfi, with a length of about 20 km, depth ranging from 450 to 1600 m and a width ranging from 400 m only a few metres at its narrowest part.

 

Vikos is listed as the deepest gorge in the world by the Guinness Book of Records among others. This follows a somewhat arbitrary definition of a gorge that excludes deeper features such as Colca Canyon because of their greater width:depth ratio.

There was a short window of opportunity to have a 'quick' walk between coats drying on a day of decorating .

Corrimony woods and falls was the destination but I didn't stay long; the insects were over friendly and the clock was ticking!

Gorge walks are great fun, you are guaranteed to get wet, but with the right equipment, it is very rewarding to complete.

Very picturesque Vintgar gorge with river Radovna, Slovenia.

Here the river Aare carves through a limestone ridge near the town of Meiringen, Switzerland (ever read Sherlock Holmes? This is where the Reichenbach Falls are, and you can visit the exact place where Arthur Conan Doyle staged the fight between Prof. Moriarty and Sherlock Holmes.). The gorge is bordered by cliffs up to 165 feet / 50 m high on either side and is just 1 meter (3 ft 3 in) at its narrowest spot.
