  • General Info for Samaria Gorge:

The biggest and maybe the most known Greek island, Crete ,

does not offer only pleasure to holidaymakers and archaeology

fans. Equally attractive is also for the lovers of adventure and

hiking. The reason for Samaria Gorge, of course. Has a length of

13 km and is considered one of the biggest Gorges in Europe. It

was created by a small river running between the White

Mountains (Lefka ori) at an altitude of 1,200 m , ending at the

shores of the Libyan Sea in Agia Roumeli. Interesting here is to

notice the shelter for many species of birds (like Griffon

vulture, Bearded eagle, Bonelli’s eagle , Golden eagle e.g.) . In

order to traverse it you will need approximately 5 hours with

moderate difficulty. Arriving to Agia Roumeli , with a boat you

reach the Hora Sfakion where a van of our company will wait for

you for the way back.

The equipment you must have with you:

  • Proper footwear and socks
  • A hat
  • Sunscreen
  • A swimsuit and a beach towel
