Overview

Pick up from your hotel or a place nearby. After approximately 1.5-hour drive through a beautiful landscape, we reach the plateau of Omalos (see the entrance of our national park) and then drive to Sougia. From there we continue our journey with the boat following the coastline to the village of Agia Roumeli! During your stay in the village, you have plenty of time to cross Samaria gorge from its exit to the Iron Gates. The distance you can walk is 3 km from the village to the entrance of the gorge and 1.5 km further up to the Iron Gates, one of the most interesting points of the gorge.
Late in the afternoon we take the same boat to get back to the port of Sougia where our coach is waiting for you in order to drive us back to Chania!

 

General information:

The duration of the hike is at least 5 hours and that’s why you must wear proper footwear with socks, a hat, light-colored clothing and sunscreen. You must have a bottle of water with you (there is drinking spring water along the trail), a light snack, if you wish, and of course a walking mood.

Camping is not allowed in the gorge, you can’t spend the night there, light a fire, smoke (you can only do so at the special milestones on the trail), you can’t hunt, set traps, bring guns or animals along, you can’t uproot plants and you are of course not allowed to bathe in the river.
We must keep the lavatories clean for the sake of our own health and we mustn’t throw paper inside the toilets.
You must hold on to the ticket issued at the entrance of the gorge until the end of the hike, in order to go through control at the exit gate.\

Extra to pay on the bus:

  • entrance fee: 5.00 €
  • boat ticket Sougia- Agia Roumeli – Sougia : adults:12.00 € / children: 5-12 years old 6.00 €
