Excursions in Crete

Samaria Gorge National Park

Samaria gorge the longest one in Europe, is an area of stunning natural beauty

Samaria Gorge

Description

Hiking the 16km-long Samaria Gorge, one of Europe's longest canyons, is high on the list of must-dos for many Crete visitors. There’s an undeniable raw beauty to the canyon with its soaring cliffs and needle-nose passageways.

The village of Samaria lies just inside the gorge, in the middle of nowhere. It was finally abandoned by the last remaining inhabitants in 1962 to make way for the park. The village and the gorge take their names from the village's ancient church, Osia Maria ("Saint Mary").

The hike begins at an elevation of 1230m just south of Omalos and ends in the coastal village of Agia Roumeli.
