Even though the path runs downhill it requires strong, comfortable footwear and some degree of physical fitness. See link for hiking map!

If you're in Crete, it's a crying shame to miss the gorge. Keep your eye out for all the krikri goats. Enjoy your hard earned swim in Roumeli after the hike.

16 km long, 300 meters deep and – in the narrowest part – only 4 meters wide, this is not just a national park but a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.

The “star” of the National Forest is the famous Cretan wild goat, best known as the “Kri-kri”. This is the gorge’s most famous resident and for its protection the gorge was declared a National Park.

The hike is pretty exhausting, especially during the summer, but it's totally worth it. Don't forget to wear good shoes.

if you want to see the fantastic waterfall, you must start early. be well rquiped. the rosd from chania to the park in some places is under construction and you shall drive very slow.

Long walk (~4-7 hours), but even slightly fit people will have no trouble. Many places to refill water, but no place to buy food, so bring some along. Bus and ferry are pricey (14€,9€),gorge 5€.

It took us 6 hours to go 13 km. Take tracking boots with ribbed sole, a swimsuit for beach in Agia Roumeli after the track and a muscle & joint rub. Don't take water, there are springs on the track.

One of the most difficult hikes of my life, but definitely worth it!! I totally recommend getting there as early as possible to have time to rest on the hike.

Don't bring 5 liters of water, you can take it in the gorge from many water sources

The heat during summer is an important factor that you must keep in mind!

Mieux vaut commencer la randonnée tôt le matin, à la "fraîche" et se munir de bonnes chaussures et de bouteilles d'eau. Le retour par Loutro s'impose !

Здесь очень красиво. Кругом горы, тишина и прохлада. Не поленитесь съездить и дорога не опасная. Отметка 1275

De beroemde Samariakloof in het gelijknamige national park op het eiland Kreta. Open van 1 mei tot 15 oktober. Totale tocht +/- 16 km (13,2 in de kloof en 2,8 erna naar het strand)

Не едьте сюда на машине. Лучше идите до конца все 13км) А если все же планируетеподниматься обратно из ущелья - не берите ссобой много вещей. И необходима хорошая обувь - идти нужно по булыжникам.
