Our trip starts early in the morning, moving west, to the heart of the White Mountains to the Omalos Plateau (appr.1010 meters altitude), where we will have a short break for breakfast and coffee. After that we continue to the entrance of the gorge, where our walk through the famous, 16 kilometer long Samaria gorge will start. The trail starts at 1237 meters and leads us all the way down to the sea level.
It offers a rich variety of scenic beauty: mountain views, large, ancient trees, narrow passages, a gurgling stream and at the end -the reward of a swim in the Libyan Sea. The gorgre is part of the national park that is home to protected Cretan Wild Mountain Goats. Most people need 5-6 hours for this hike.
At the end of the walk you will reach the village Agia Roumeli where you can find taverns, shops. Late in the afternoon the ferry takes us to Sfakia, where our bus will wait for us to drive us back to the hotels. Attention: The length of the walk, the very irregular, steep path and the heat are a real challenge.
We do NOT recommend this walk for smaill children, pregnant women and people with a health problems! Good and solid footwear is absolutely necessary!
