What You'll Do

  • Discover the incredible landscape of Crete and take a hiking tour of the white peaks of the Omalos Plateau
  • Tour the longest gorge in Europe and relax in the small, idyllic fishing town of Agia Roumeli
  • Visit traditional taverns, swim in the crystal clear sea, and enjoy a boat ride along the South coast

What to Expect

Experience the Samaria Gorge and descend from the Omalos Plateau. Descend into the gorge, measuring 18 kilometers long, 4 by 150 meters wide, and up to 700 meters deep. The exploration will take from 4 to 6 hours.

Hike through the longest gorge in Europe and admire the beauty and diversity of nature. The smallest section of the gorge is only approximately 4 meters wide and the cliffs reach heights of 350 meters — enjoy this incredible sight. At midday, stop in the fishing village of Agia Roumeli on the Libyan Sea and relax in the taverns or take a dip in the crystal clear blue waters.

In the late afternoon, take a 1-hour boat tour from Agia Roumeli, past the mighty rocks of the south coast of Crete to Hora Sfakion. A bus will be waiting there to take you back to your accommodation.
