activity info

Are you a good hiker and like to walk? Do you want to join a unique hiking day tour?  If yes – then discover one of the most impressive ravines in the whole Europe! The enormous, rugged landscape of Samaria Gorge!

Mother Nature has cut its way through the bulky limestone masses that tower up from 200 to 2.000 m. The wideness of the ravine varies from 300 to 4 metres and we cover an altitude difference of approx. 1.230 meters. Leisurely walking you normally need 6 hours to reach the south coast.

Arrive at the plateau of Omalos at an altitude of 1000 m. on the White Mountains where the adventure begins. The hike tour starts quite steeply down the 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. You have the opportunity of a refreshing swim and a good meal in one of the local restaurants. From there, take the boat for Chora Sfakion and then return by coach.

A well-run, thoroughly enjoyable trip to a serene and spectacular location. Clear instructions and information also helped to make it one of the highlights of my visit to Crete. I would also add that I'm glad I made this journey in May because, although the walking route is often well shaded, particularly at the start, I'm sure it would be much more arduous in the heat of summer. The cafes, bars and restaurants at the end were very welcome, as were the beach and the ferry.

We ordered the trip the day before. Since we didn´t stay in a hotel, we had to make an agreement to where we should find the bus. No problem. The answer came quickly an there were no problems at all. Good service and a very clever guide. I can recommend Key Tours. Kjetil Korsnes
