Known as one of the longest and most stunning canyons in Europe, Samaria Gorge offers an unforgettable hiking experience for adventure enthusiasts.

As you traverse the rugged terrain, you’ll be surrounded by towering cliffs, rugged mountains, and crystal-clear streams. The flora and fauna are equally mesmerizing, with rare Cretan wildflowers, pine trees, and elusive wildlife adding to the charm.

The highlight of the hike is undoubtedly the moment you reach the Iron Gates, where the canyon narrows, creating a dramatic and breathtaking spectacle.

The hike through the gorge is an approximately 5-hour long walk until Agia Roumeli, where you can take a bus to Chania Town, so make sure to wear appropriate footwear, carry plenty of water, and pack some snacks.
