Samaria Gorge Hiking Tour

We'll pick you up from your hotel in Chania between 5:20 and 6:10 am and drive to the Samaria National Park, stopping first in the small village of Omalos. At the time of booking, you can choose between two types of routes:

Easy route

We'll leave Omalos and travel to Sougia, where you'll have 1 hour of free time to explore the beauty of the beach. From here, we'll board a boat that will take us to the small village of Agia Roumeli, the starting point of our hiking route through the Samaria Gorge.

We'll embark on an easy 4 hour 30 minute hike that will show us some of the beautiful nature of western Crete. Specifically, we'll reach the Iron Gates, the narrowest part of the gorge - you'll be able to touch both sides!

At the end of the walk, we'll return to Agia Roumeli, where you'll have 1 hour of free time to have lunch in a local restaurant. With your batteries recharged, we'll return to the boat that will take us to Sougia. There the bus will be waiting for us to take us back to Canea. The tour will end at approximately 8:30 pm.  

Difficult route

This route will take us across the Omalos plateau, starting from Xyloskalo, more than 1200 metres above sea level. During the 6 hour hike, we'll get to know the vast forests and ecosystem of the Samaria National Park, as well as the beauty of the rock formations of the gorge - be prepared to cross dizzying and zigzagging trails!

The route will end at the Iron Gates and reach Agia Roumeli, where we'll board a boat that will take us to Sougia. There a bus will be waiting for us to take us back to Canea. Arrival at your hotel is scheduled for approximately 8:30 pm.
