Experience

Highlights
  • Enjoy the morning atmosphere in Sfakia at the magnifisant crystal cost of the south of Crete
  • Relax on the boat whilst heading to Agia Roumeli
  • Explore the stunning "Iron gate" at your own tempo
Full description
You will arrive early in the morning to the traditional village of Sfakia, from where you will take a boat to the beautiful beach of Agia Roumeli. Once there you can choose to walk to the opposite side within the majestic gorge, with most people choosing to walk as far as the famous Iron Gates. This is the narrowest point of the gorge, and offers those inside it the best chance to get a glimpse of the wild beauty and serenity of the area. You will soon return to head to the sandy beach of Agia Roumeli, a superb place nestled between breathtakingly high mountains. There you will have the chance to spend the rest of your day swimming in the crystal-clear waters of the Libyan Sea, sunbathing, or strolling along the fine-pebbled beach. You can also choose to enjoy your meal in one of the many seaside taverns. At the end of your stress-relieving day you will board your boat once again to get to the hospitable and quaint village of Sfakia, where you will take a bus back to your hotel. This is an ideal excursion for people who want to experience some of the magic of the Samaria Gorge, or for families with children.
