Meet your guide at your Chania hotel between 4:30am and 5am, then travel out of the city to the Samaria Gorge by air-conditioned coach to begin your 12-hour tour. The longest gorge in Europe, Samaria is widely considered among Crete’s top natural attractions.
During your 10-mile (16-km) hike, follow rugged trails through the Samaria Gorge and marvel at the beautiful scenery you find. Admire high limestone cliffs, and pass traditional villages where life ticks by at a relaxed pace.
Clamber around boulders and navigate thin, rocky passes along the gorge floor. On arrival into Agia Roumeli, stop for a rest and food (own expense). Then, return by boat to Sougia and meet your coach for the return journey to your Chania hotel.
Please Note: this challenging tour is suited only to experience hikers.
