Nestled within the scenic expanse of Skala lies a hidden gem waiting to be discovered: Gradou Gorge, a breathtaking canyon adorned with cascading waterfalls, serene lakes, and abundant waters flowing from December to May. Some of the waterfalls reach staggering heights of up to twenty meters, while the lakes boast diameters of 10 meters and depths of up to 4 meters.

At first glance, the rugged landscape of Gradou Gorge may evoke images of central or northern Greece, rather than an island setting. Yet, it is precisely this diversity of terrain and untamed natural beauty that sets Kefalonia apart, inviting visitors to embark on a journey of exploration and discovery.

For adventurous souls seeking an adrenaline-fueled experience, Gradou Gorge offers the perfect opportunity for canyoning adventures. Several groups in the area provide guided excursions, allowing participants to navigate the canyon’s rugged terrain, rappel down waterfalls, and immerse themselves in the pristine beauty of the surrounding wilderness.
