From Agia Pelagia, Heraklion, or Malia: Samaria Gorge Hike

  • Price from € 48

Experience description

Stop to purchase a hearty breakfast in Rethymno on this full-day Samaria Gorge excursion. Begin your trek at Xiloskalo, where you’ll enter the vast, 18-kilometer canyon.

Hike along a path that follows the route of the ancient Taras River. Admire the caves that formed a natural shelter for the Cretans in war times and now are home to wild goats.

See the abandoned village of Samaria before reaching the Iron Gates, 3 kilometers before the end of the gorge.

Rest and enjoy lunch (at your own expense) at the small fishing village of Agia Roumeli. Cool off with a refreshing swim in the Libyan Sea before boarding the ship that takes you back to the village of Sfakia.
