Description

The Samaria Gorge is the longest gorge in Europe with its 18 km length. A descent along a precipice so wide that it is ideal for trekking and nature lovers.

The path is not easy, as it requires from 5 to 7 hours of walking and turns out to be very challenging, especially in those places where the rock walls leave a space of only 3 meters wide (the so-called Iron Gates ). Along the way, however, there are water stations and chemical bathrooms at regular distances, which allow you to have some time off.

The road also provides the possibility of being in contact with the particular and characteristic wildlife including Kri-kri, the Cretan wild goat.

The area was made a national park, and is the only national park on the territory of Crete.
