Crete is not only about beaches, lovely villages and great food. For those who want to hike, there are some great gorges to start with. Let’s take a look at some of the beautiful landscapes you will encounter while in the mountains of Crete.

Video Journeys: Samaria gorge Crete

This is a short video about the famous Samaria Gorge, the biggest gorge in Europe. The Samaria Gorge is a national park on the island of Crete and truly a must visit if you are into some activity away from the beaches.

We will revisit the Samaria gorge probably end of September (the last visit was sometime in the last century) and cover it in more detail. In the meantime, enjoy this short appetizer video.

If you are interested in a more quiet gorge experience you can take a peak at the Sarakina gorge, which we did, ummm in a not so pretty way. Maybe we will release the video of that hike someday…
