Come and explore the Gorge of Samaria. Our adventure for Samaria gorge which is the longest gorge in Europe, starts at at 6:00-7:00 in the morning by starting a nice drive through the White Mountains and through some Cretan villages.
The Samaria Gorge is the most popular walk of Crete Island and a great example of beauty of Cretan nature.The gorge is located at the south of Chania Prefecture in the larger uninhabited area of Europe, where no roads even exist. It was created by the river flowing between the main massif of the White Mountains (Lefka Ori). The gorge is 13 km long, starting at an altitude of 1,250m at the northern entrance, and ending at the shores of the South Cretan Sea in Agia Roumeli.
After 1 hour and 30 min. we arrive in Sfakia where we take the ferry and sail towards Agia Roumeli. This village marks the southern exit of the gorge. Upon arriving you can start your walk and after 3 kilometers you will reach the entrance of the National park or even further to the narrowest part of the gorge called the Iron Gate. There you can swim or eat. At the end of the day the ferry takes us back to Chora Sfakion, where the bus is waiting, to return to your hotel at 20:00 at night.
