Hiking at the Gorge of Samaria is something you must do if you ever visit this beautiful island. It is 16 km long and since 1962 has been proclaimed as a national-park.
It isn't so tiring as it sounds, you can walk through it in between 3-7 hours, it depends on your foot...
At the picture, you see the starting point, which is at an altitude of 1200 m. The wonderful nature will surely imburse you...
Favorite thing: This is so special for me because in Poland we have mountains in the South and sea in the North. For a Pole it's quite funny to see mountains at the seaside...
Favorite thing: You sure will drive through Topolia gorge when heading to Elafonissi... Don not forget to look around!
When you are at Crete you have to walk through the Samaria cliff, it is a walk from about 5 hours and it can be realy hot in there!!
But it is worth to visit
