    Stop At: Samaria Gorge National Park, Old National Road Chanion-Kissamou Lefka Ori, Sfakia, Crete 730 05 Greece

    The tour includes the hike through the gorge of Samaria, from its starting point in Xyloskalo by the White Mountains to the coastal village of Agia Roumeli in the South coast.

    Important note :
    The hike is 16km long and strenuous, on a mainly stoney terrain, which makes the tour suitable only for guests that are fit, exercise regularly and have some experience in walking long distances. Other than that, good knees - because of the steep downhill - and suitable shoes are the most important factors in order to enjoy the day. It does not have to be hiking boots, as long as they are solid with a reasonable grip, rubber soles, preferably with a good ankle support too

    All participants are required to read and sign an assumption of risk waiver, acknowledging the inherent risk involved in the hiking tour before the tour begins.
