If you are lucky you might spot a “Kri-Kri” the wild mountain goat. At the end of the hike you reach the small fisher village of Agia Roumeli right at the Libyan Sea. From there take the boat for Sougia and then return by coach. Arrival back to Chania around 20:30.

A bit expensive - there are much cheaper options. But everything went very smooth and the English guide was excellent. The bus was also OK. Oh, and the Samaria Gorge is beautiful, of course.

7 hours walking the Gorge in the nature is THE experience!!!! Not far away from Chania, the super view and the best feelings ever!!! We've seen the famous Kri-kri and we've taken the ship for having lunch in Sfakia, after the end of th gorge! Everything was excellent and we've really walked a lot, without realizing the hours...
