Come with us to explore Samaria Gorge, the most majestic gorge in Europe and get ready to live a unique experience!

Our adventure starts very early in the morning and our first stop is near Rethimnon, where we get breakfast before moving on to Omalos Plateau. The walk starts from Xiloskalo, where we enter this vast canyon of 18 klm that is considered to be the longest in Europe, We usually need 6-7 hours to cross the rocky gorge down to the shore.

The path follows the route of the ancient river Taras. On the way, we can see the caves that formed a natural shelter for the Cretans in war times and now they are the natural habitat of the well-known wild goats, or kri-kri. Halfway we come across the village of Samaria, currently abandoned. Three kilometers prior to our exiting this majestic gorge, we reach the Iron Gates (Sideroportes), the narrowest spot of the route, just a few meters wide, but 300 meters high. A bit later we arrive in the small fishing village of Agia Roumeli, where we have quite a long time to lunch and get a refreshing swim in the Libyan Sea, before boarding the ship that leads us back along the coast to the village of Sfakia.

Hiking shoes, sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, an extra pair of socks, swimsuit and a light jacket are essential.
