One of the most attractive part of the gorge, is the path where the gorge stretches to 3 meters but the height of the surrounding rocks is 300 meters. This part, is named “Gates” and you can imagine the reason! On your way through the gorge, you will find the village of Samaria, lonely and abandonded, but beautiful and hidden inside the national park.
The way through the gorge requires comfortable footwear and a good level of physical fitness. If you don't want to walk all the way down the gorge, you can go half way till you reach the village, but if you want to make an effort till the end of the gorge, a beautiful village with calm beaches is awaiting, and you could spend the night there!
In order to reach the entrance of Samaria Gorge you can rent a car from Autohire Chania, for more information visit our reservation page!
