From Georgioupolis: Roundtrip Transfer to Samaria Gorge

1. From Georgioupolis: Roundtrip Transfer to Samaria Gorge

Explore the famous Samaria Gorge on a trip along the northern coastline of Crete and through the White Mountains up to the Omalos Plateau. Samaria Gorge became a National Park in 1962 and today, it is the last natural refuge for the Cretan goat species known as Kri-Kri. Depart early in the morning and board a coach which will pick you up from your hotel. After a comfortable drive, arrive at the plateau of Omalos for a small break before heading to the entrance of the gorge. The start of the hiking trail through the gorge is at a height of 1200m. On the route, pass by rich vegetation and through the tall rock walls known as the "Iron Gates". Fill up your water bottle at one of the springs in the gorge. At the end of the 17km walk, reach the Libyan Sea. There, at the beach of Ayia Roumeli, enjoy a refreshing swim or sit at one of the taverns until a ferry takes the group to Chora Sfakion where the bus will be waiting for you to return you back to your hotel.

Mackie was a really great guide and made everything run smoothly. She gave us all the important information about the gorge, was very entertaining and we immediately knew that we were in good hands. It started an hour after us and would have been there for us in case of problems. The gorge itself was beautiful and I was very happy with my hiking boots and walking sticks! Although not exactly untrained, my wife and I had sore muscles in our calves for 2 days afterwards.

Pickup worked perfectly. The trip to the gorge was entertaining and interesting thanks to the tour guide. There was enough time for the hike itself and everyone can hike at their own pace. The return trip by boat is a very nice way to end the day. This excursion is highly recommended for anyone who can walk well.

Everything worked out great. From the punctual pick-up in the morning, a pleasant drive to the gorge, the Central organized maps for the hike and the ship, the tour guide and the return trip. We can only recommend Get Your Guide

It was a great, but also exhausting trip. The transfer worked really well and Mackie created a good atmosphere with her sense of humor. I can only recommend it.

Ingenious gorge with great impressions. Not to be underestimated and not recommended for knee problems - sometimes it goes down steeply.
