Samaria Gorge

Pull on your walking boots for this hike through Samaria Gorge. Running for 18km, this spectacular ravine is the longest in Europe. So it's a serious five to six hour trek that's not for the faint hearted. We'll start by driving though the White Mountains to your starting point, the Xyloskalo staricase, which zigzags more than 200 metres down into the gorge. Once at the botton, it's a case of letting your legs do the work while you enjoy the scenery. We'll pass tiny chapels, walk between the high ravine walls and maybe spot some of Crete's wild 'kri-kri' goats. The highlight, though, is the 'Iron Gates'; the narrowest section of the gorge, where the 300 metre-high walls stand just three metres apart. At the end we'll reach the seaside village of Agia Roumelli, where if you've made good time, you can grab a swim or relax in a taverna. Then we'll catch a boat along the coast to where your coach awaits. Great for outdoors types. Children must 10 years or older. Pull on your walking boots for this hike through Samaria Gorge.
