Samaria Gorge

Samaria Gorge

An experience not to be missed! Hike along the rugged terrain of the Samaria Gorge cutting through a limestone plateau and at a length of 18 kilometres it is Europe’s longest gorge. You will visit and will surely be enchanted by the beautiful landscapes of Crete. At one point of the gorge the walls are only 3 metres apart from each other, and are known as the ‘iron curtains’ with sides rising sheer up to 100 feet. The hike is followed by a short cruise around the southern coastline to the pretty costal village of Chora Sfakion, where you will have the opportunity for lunch break in one of the local traditional Tavernas.
