Welcome to the breathtaking Samaria Gorge, a natural wonder nestled in the heart of the White Mountains of Crete. Carved by the forces of nature over millennia, this majestic gorge is a haven for adventurers and nature lovers alike.
Embark on an unforgettable journey as you traverse the 16-kilometer trail that winds through the towering cliffs and verdant forests of Samaria. Marvel at the sheer scale of the gorge, with its towering walls reaching heights of over 300 meters, and immerse yourself in the pristine beauty of its untouched wilderness.
As you hike along the rugged terrain, keep your eyes peeled for native flora and fauna, from wildflowers blooming in the spring to rare species of birds soaring overhead. Listen to the gentle murmur of the river that runs through the gorge, a soothing soundtrack to your exploration.
Halfway through your trek, you’ll encounter the iconic “Iron Gates,” where the walls of the gorge narrow to just four meters wide, creating a dramatic passage that will leave you in awe of nature’s power and artistry.
Finally, emerge triumphantly at the village of Agia Roumeli, where you can reward yourself with a refreshing dip in the crystal-clear waters of the Libyan Sea. Relax on the sun-drenched beaches or indulge in a well-deserved meal at one of the local tavernas, savoring the flavors of traditional Cretan cuisine.

Whether you’re drawn to Samaria Gorge for its natural beauty, its rich biodiversity, or the thrill of adventure, one thing is certain: a visit to this spectacular destination promises memories that will last a lifetime
