Overview
The Samariá Gorge is a National Park of Greece since 1962 on the island of Crete – a major tourist attraction of the island – and a World's Biosphere Reserve. On your Samaria gorge adventure, the bus will take you first along the north coast and then up into the White Mountains to the Omalos Plateau and the entrance to the gorge. There, at a height of 1.100m, you will begin the 16km walk through the longest and most beautiful gorge in Europe. After the strenuous but spectacular walk, you will be conveyed by boat on an equally glorious trip from Agia Roumeli, the village at the end of the gorge, to Chora Sfakion, where the bus will be waiting to take you back. One should always keep in mind, however, that though the trail as a whole is not tricky, one should be more careful during some parts of the trek. The hike is not suggested for people facing health problems, or suffering from conditions affecting their lower extremities the elderly pregnant women.

The Gorge per se was pretty great to look at, whatever little we could see of it that is. Almost all of the time we were looking down at our toes making sure we watched our steps. There were not enough stops to take a break, and take in the view leave alone enough of wash rooms

I have just completed this trek at my 2nd attempt as it was closed at my last attempt in May 2017. I'm pretty fit and have done similar treks but the steep descent and rocky uneven terrain makes it tough. I was concerned to see people being allowed to do this wearing
