  • Rich and full of beautiful mountains views settlements ruins elelemtni missed natural. There is only the plateau leading to Omalos, there's only the village of Lakki or the Samaria Gorge. Well worth the streets that cross: that which goes south towards Frangokastello, that further west to Elafonissi and Falasarna, the middle one to Samaria. Omalos is marshy and winter wintry to thaw, but is extremely fertile and cultivated plain. There are State impassable roads and streets, all more or less good. And please note: when scollinate at the top you will find long stretches deserts, but here, on moonless nights, switched off the headlights of the car pollution is zero and you can see the majestic Milky Strip as they saw the minoans and the ancient Greeks, and understand why such a show has fueled many myths. At night the only danger is a failure to the car, but watch out for the goats: sleeping on the asphalt, even behind the corners, because here the hike ends is devastating: in August of day you reach 40 degrees under the hot sun, at night the temperature falls steeply even under 20 degrees. That's why goats lie on the tarmac that locks in the heat of the day. Are roads to do without running, to admire the peaks but also the vegetation on the sides of the road: on the road to Lakki, same long curve, we saw orange trees with ripe fruits, vines with grapes almost to be seized, chestnut and cypress trees next to the other. Here nature is wonderful

  • A great experience in creation of nature. Breathtaking view from the plateau where my hike started. To wander around 2000 m down into a rocky Gorge and then come down to the sea was an unforgettable experience. Drink of Natu mineral water all the way to cool herself ... Must be experienced!
