Hiking tour in the Samaria’s gorge

  • Duration

    Full day

Leaving behind the northern Cretan coast, we go towards the south. After we cross the White Mountains (by bus), we reach Xyloskalo,  at an altitude of 1.200 m. From this point, the official crossing of the gorge begins (on foot), with a downhill direction. The Samaria’ gorge is the longest of Europe (16,7 km) and practically crosses Crete from north to south. At the end of it, the hiker will find the Agia Roumeli  village -on the Libyan Sea- where he will rest, eat, drink and swim in the beautiful, transparent waters of the sea.

In the afternoon, the boat will take us from there to Chora Sfakion, where the bus will be waiting, in order to bring us back to the hotel.
