Samaria Gorge

Samaria Gorge

Samaria Gorge is one of the most popular attractions of Crete and certainly a place that every tourist visiting the island must visit.

Samaria Gorge is the largest gorge in Europe, with a length of 18 km. Every summer thousands of visitors cross it and admire its unique beauty, making it the most walked path across the country.

The animal and plant kingdom in the region of the gorge is very rich as well as rare, such as the well-known kri-kri, the wild goat of Crete.

Due to the rarity of the plants and animals in the region, specific contracts have been signed for protecting the uniqueness of the landscape, so it can remain a uniquely wonderful place!
