On your Samaria gorge adventure, the bus will take you first along the north coast and then up into the White Mountains to the Omalos Plateau and the entrance of the gorge, where you have also a possibility for breakfast.
The entrance of the longest gorge in Europe (11 miles/ 16 km) lies at 4000 ft/ 1.100 m. We walk over rocks and stones down the gorge, through a fantastic forest among thousands of years old trees, along a little river and fresh-water springs. It is the nicest and the most impressive mountain region of Crete. There live the last Kri-Kris, Cretan mountain goats in the wild.
The walk is partially very difficult. It lasts approximately 5-6 hours and you need absolutely good shoes- mountain boots or, at least, strong trainers. Attention: This walk is NOT recommended for children under the age of 6, pregnant women and people with health problems!
At the end of the gorge we arrive at the Libyan Sea and the village of Agia Roumeli for a swim, recreation or a meal at the great local taverns. Afterwards the ferry takes us to Chora Sfakion, where our bus is waiting, to take us back home.
Children up to 15 years: free entrance into the gorge
Boat ticket for child (6 to 12 years): 6,00 Euro p/p
