Samaria Gorge is the longest trekking gorge in Europe. The length of the gorge, which belongs to the European E4 path, reaches 18km and takes almost 4-7 hours to hike from Omalos to AgiaRoumeli depending on trekking speed.The gorge became a national park in 1962, particularly as a refuge for the rare kri-kri (Cretan wild goat), which is largely restricted to the park.
Walking through the gorge is an experience that visitors always enjoy. The flora is extensive ranging from high trees to flowers and herbs. After hiking through the gorge, you reach AgiaRoumeli, where you get some refreshments or eat something. From there, you leave by ferryboat to Sougia or ChoraSfakion.
