Hike through the historic gorge of Agiofarago before emerging at the crystal-clear waters of Mediterranean Sea in the unique beach of Agiofarago and discover your spirit of adventure by participating in our Rock Climbing activity!! "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!!!
