All reviews great hike nice alternative lovely walk rock walls oasis taverna beautiful hiking paved road costs euros early bus south coast challenging hike three hours hours walking goat wild flowers taxi driver mostly downhill
Parked at the bottom of the trail but there is a Cafe/ restaurant at the start of the trail which would have been a better place to start the walk. Had planned to walk up and down but the rain put an end to that...More
We didn’t want to dedicate fully to the larger gorge so we drove out to this one. Hiked down, and got a taxi back up from the cafe at the base.
It is a little rough, but nothing crazy for the hike. Recommend sunscreen and...More
We opted to walk this gorge rather than Samaria due to time constraints. We drove to Sougia and left the car (free parking!) taking a 40 minute bus journey back up to the entrance. The walk was very peaceful and enjoyable, with some beautiful views,...More
I walked up the Samaria Gorge in July about 30 years ago (it was busy even then!) so I wasn't too disappointed to learn that it was closed for a few days following a heavy storm late September this year.

We had a minibus dropping us off at the north entrance of the gorge around 8:30am. There is one restaurant that seemed to be open so you might have been able to get breakfast but a little cafe-looking building was closed. Thankfully we had eaten...More
We decided to do this gorge as it is shorter than samaria and we have children with us. So we drove through the very windey but very scenic mountain road from chania, got there around 12.30 and had decided beforehand not to go all the...More
We hiked the Agia Irini Gorge twice both ways. The longer hike we started from another end of Omalos Plateau from a small parking place and followed hiking route E4 towards the Gorge. The vertical was a bit more than 1000m so you need to...More
We went to Sougia where we met the taxi driver, we followed him by car to the end of the walk of Agia Irini, next to the taverna. From there we all went in his car for 30minutes (30€) to start the walk at the...More
