If there is one thing you do when visiting the Greek island of Crete, you must hike Samaria Gorge.  There are certain epic hikes throughout the world, and the hike through Samaria Gorge National Park is one of them. 

What makes Samaria Gorge epic?  At 16 kilometers, Samaria Gorge is one of the longest gorges in Europe, is located in Crete’s only national park, and provides stunning views all day long.

Follow the route of the ancient Taras River and experience one of the most spectacular treks in Crete.
