  • From the South end of the village of Agia Irini begins the gorge of Agia Irini. The gorge of Agia Irini is an excellent alternative to the gorge of Samaria.  more »
  • Stationed at Aghia Irini, we reached the entrance of the gorges in the morning to avoid the heat of the mid-day.

Water all kilometers on the first 4 then more nothing until Soughia. Arrived at the bottom and if you don't go back to feet, still an hour's hike to reach the village of Soughia (market on the road that is not very interesting) where you can take a bus (€3 20) that will take you in 35 minutes at Aghia Irini. The ascent on foot is quite possible. Good and beautiful bucolic stroll (flora is beautiful), much less crowded than Samaria (than if you start Samaria around 7: 00 / 7 h 30, you can do all the way down without meeting anyone, even in high tourist season (experience).)
