Walks from Sougia

Hi (again!)

If we decide to stay in Sougia are there any other walks we can do direct from the village other than :-

Irini Gorge

Tripiti back to Sougia

Walk to Lissos

Thanks

Rach

You can also walk up to Koustoyerako, and to the Polifimos cave. Ask for directions locally.

Most people (perhaps not you?) would want a rest day after the Tripiti walk.

For an overnight, you can walk up the Agia Irini gorge and across to Omalos, stay there, and walk down the Samaria Gorge the following day. You could do it the other way round - boat to Agia Roumeli in the morning, up the Samaria gorge to Omalos and down the Agia Irini gorge back to Sougia.

Either way, you'll need a good walking map for the cross-country to Omalos - and accurate directions from local people in Sougia or Omalos.
