Samaria Gorge


Getting to and from the Samaria Gorge takes a little time. Here's the basic itinerary:


From Hanai town to trailhead

Take a public or tour bus from Hania up a steep mountain to the Samaria Gorge trailhead near Omalos village.


Down the Samaria Gorge

Hike down the length of its long river bed.


Agia Roumeli

Your hike ends at this tiny seaside Agia Roumeli village. Rest your feet while eating or sipping a cold drink. You can also relax on the beach.


Return to Hania

Unfortunately, Agia Roumeli is not connected to the Crete road system. You have two basic options to get back to Hania. You could doubleback by hiking up the trail (very few people have the time or energy left to do it). Or, you could take the quicker, easier and most popular option: Take a 30-minute ferry ride from Agia Roumeli to Hora Sfakion village where you board a waiting nonstop bus to Hania.
