Hiking Safari Psari Summit, Kallergi Refuge and Samaria Gorge

The Samaria Gorge might be one of the greatest in Europe but the mountains and routes surrounding it are equally impressive and grand. Psari summit standing at around 2000 meters is the balcony of Samaria and is approached by Our partner in the best possible way.

After the picturesque village of Lakkoi, a hidden dirt road will lead us directly deep in the mountains and after we climb up the beautiful gorge, we will leave the cars at the old entrance of the Samaria Gorge, a place called Poria.

Our hiking will start from there along a cane trail of E4 of average difficulty at the boundaries of the national
gorge.

On our right is the vast gorge, seen from an angle few have enjoyed, while on our left laying like jewelry the innumerable summits of the White Mountains.

Due to the altitude and the temperature we will barely sweat before we find ourselves at the top.

A sea of summits peaks and gorges in front of us while the Libyan and Cretan Sea lie in the background. Our eyes have difficulty focusing on just one place and right before the chill settles in we start our way back.

A little later we take a rest enjoying a cup of mountain tea at the climbing refuge of Kallergi which is hanging over the cliffs of Samaria.

Later on, we will descend to lower altitudes and pass by beautiful villages completing our tour in the village of Therisso where we will enjoy a truly traditional Cretan meal.

On our way back we will cross by car the Therisso gorge.

The trip is ideal for everyone who´s looking for an experience beyond the ordinary, youth groups, single or couple participants, families with older children, and companies.The trip has a trekking distance 2-3 hours and guided stops for everyone´s convenience.

In order to arrange lunch with vegetarian alternatives, information is required upon reservation. That also counts for any kind of food allergy, and only when possible to find suitable alternatives.

Above mentioned prices are for group participation. If you wish to book your own Jeep for a private Jeep Safari tour with only your family or perhaps colleagues, we will be happy to give you prices and ideas for a memorable tour. Please don't hesitate to contact us for a unique offer.
