GENERAL INFO
The gorge of Samaria is the gem of the White Mountains; Hidden in the south part of the Chania
district, it is the biggest gorge in Europe, covering an area of 18 kilometres in length. The gorge’s
trail starts at Ksyloskalo (Omalos plateau, 1.227 meters altitude) and after following the river bed,
it ends up at the littoral village of Agia Roumeli. The trail of Samaria is the most visited trail in the
whole of Greece, it is excellently equipped with signals and signs which eliminate the danger of
getting lost, it is comfortable and very well cared for, mostly with stones and soil. It is not
considered a very difficult hike, a vivid proof of which
is the fact that hundreds of people cross it daily from
the opening (in May) till the closing of its visiting
season (in October). It is a very pleasant hike, not a
strenuous one, with many landscape alternations and
a versatile environment. One should always keep in
mind, however, that though the trail as a whole is not
tricky, one should be more careful during some parts
of the trek.
The hike is not suggested for:
– People facing health problems, or suffering from
conditions affecting their lower extremities.
– The elderly.
– pregnant women
