Samariá Gorge is in southwest Crete and is a beautiful nature reserve, home to several rare animals and plants. The gorge itself is just under 10 miles (16 km long) and is both picturesque and a reasonably challenging hike, ideal for holiday-makers who want to do something more than lying on a beach. The best way to visit is with a group tour who will help to arrange transport so that your day runs smoothly.

General Information

Opening Hours:

The gorge only opens to the public in summer, and the exact dates depend on weather conditions. In general, you can hike the gorge from May until October 15. The park opens at 7 pm, and you can hike the length of the gorge if you arrive before 3 pm. If you arrive after 3 pm, you’ll only be allowed to hike 1.2 miles (2 km) before being asked to return to the entrance.


It costs €5 to enter Samariá Gorge, although visitors under the age of 15 can enter free of charge.

Agia Roumeli 730 11

How to get there:

The entrance to Samariá Gorge is located in Omalos, and you’ll walk through the gorge until you reach Agia Roumeli. Public buses can be taken to Omalos from Chania, and it’s best to leave your car in Chania so you don’t have to return to Omalos once you reach the other end of the gorge. From the other end of the gorge, you can take a ferry to Hora Sfakion, Sougia, or Paleochora. Once you get to these places you’ll be able to take a bus back to Chania. Alternatively, you can take part in a day trip that will handle all the transportation for you.
