Full Description

We will start in the morning from Chania to the plateau of Omalos. Starting from Xyloskalo as you walk downhill, we will come across the church of St. Nikolas, built on the ruins of an ancient temple. Halfway down the gorge lies the old village of Samaria, its few houses are now used by the park wardens. Quench your thirst with mountain water running from the gorge’s springs. The steep cliffs here tower as high as 500m above sea level. This route also goes past Venetian castles and ruins of prehistoric settlements as well as remnants of many other historical periods. As we are walking, you might feel as if someone else is watching you: the presence of the wild Cretan goats, known as “kri kri,” will definitely make this route particularly exciting! The path is, for the most part, rocky. We will also have to cross the river several times, either by stepping on small wooden bridges or by stepping on rocks that were placed to create a passage across the river. Also, during the route, we will enjoy the unique landscape and the rich vegetation. We will end up in the picturesque village of Agia Roumeli. We can taste traditional food and enjoy the crystal clear waters of southern Crete.
