Multi Day Exploration - Samaria Gorge and White Mountains, Crete, Greece

Back to Map 

Visited: Late Oct

Although day walks through the wonderful Samaria Gorge are popular, a circuit combining the gorge with the stark and lonely White Mountains is highly recommended. The karst mountain scenery provides challenging navigation through many gullies and dells. Be warned that water sources can be few and far between.
