  • Unlike the famous Samaria Gorge, the Gorge is traveled by car, but this does not detract from the beauty. Lots of greenery, fresh air, you climb slowly up to 500 meters. Eventually a village steeped in history (we lived the father of modern Greece, Elefterios Venizelos) with beautiful stone houses. Do not miss the culinary specialty: smoked pork.

  • A bit uncharacteristically, this Gorge passing through by car, but there are plenty of places to stop and pokochání, meant to stop at the beginning or end of the Gorge and explored on foot, there is again no such operation. Nature beautiful tits with the kůzlaty climbing over the hillsides, the scent of herbs. Visit costing village Theriso, excellent honey and sweets. I recommend to all who want to break from the beach.

  • Have we got to Crete in the summer when there are really hot, and you've heard that you ABSOLUTELY must see the Samaria Gorge, there is here a worthy alternative. In Samaria cannot be run through-you have to go all that far to bother and all the way back, unless you are skipped on a complete turn, and then follows all 18 km with. It can be really hot-deadly hot. Here is an alternative that can be visited by car from Chania (the trip there takes about 20 min) and you can run all the way through, and you can stop and go something along the way, as one desires. There are plenty of steep cliffs that juts high above a, and lot of goats on the roads. Select the Samaria in September and take this in July/August.
