Very early start & late return!

Are you a good hiker and like to walk? - this trip is typically 6 hours of hiking

If yes – then discover one of the most impressive ravines in the whole of Europe: the Samaria Gorge.

Length 18 km, but we walk “only” 16 km.

Mother Nature has cut its way through the bulky limestone masses that tower up from 200 to 2000 m.

The width of the ravine varies from 300 to 400 metres and we cover an altitude difference of approx 1200 meters. Leisurely walking you normally need 5 hours to reach the south coast.

Passing by the plateau of Omalos, at an altitude of 1100m, we continue to Xyloskalo, where the adventure begins.

There are local facilities to have breakfast or a coffee before the walk. 

The hike starts quite steeply downthe ravine over rocks and stones through a forest with cool springs at shady resting sites.

If you are lucky you might spot a “Kri-Kri”, the wild mountain goat.

At the end of the hike you reach the small fishing village of Agia Roumeli, right at the Libyan Sea.

Here you can have a refreshing swim and a good meal in one of the local tavernas. From there, we take the boat to Sougia or Chora Sfakion and then return by coach.
