Itinerary

Welcome meeting in the traditional town of Kissamos and briefing with information about the route & coming days.
E-bike selection and personal adjustments.

Ease yourself into the adventure with a guided E-bike ride. Starting from Kissamos on the North coast, up and over the white mountains on quiet mountain roads and finishing in the village of Sougia on the South. Expect stunning mountain and panoramic sea views, company from goats (and often vultures) plus nice easy riding with assistance from the electric motor. Ride distance approx 60km.

Overnight in Sougia.

See the stunning southern coastline from a different perspective, as you kayak with a guide from Sougia to the small villlage of Agia Roumeli, only accessible by boat.

Enjoy the flexibility of the kayaks as you explore small bays and beaches, rock formations and sea caves along your way. Expect soaring cliffs, turquoise clear waters and plenty of opportunities for swim/snorkel stops as you go.

Spend the evening at your leisure in Agia Roumeli. Refuel with a cold beer and great food with a sea view at one of the tavernas, take a dip in the Libyan sea from the pebble beach or hike up to the old fortress overlooking the village for some really spectacular sunset views.

Kayak distance 15km.

Overnight in Agia Roumeli.

Today you will hike, at your own pace, the stunning gorge of Samaria - one of the longest gorges in Europe. It runs 16km from Agia Roumeli to Omalos in the White mountains.

Take advantage of your perfect positioning (waking up almost at the entrance to the gorge) to get an early start, or plan the day as you wish. Most walkers need 5-7 hours to cross the gorge.

You will walk the gorge uphill - easier on the knees! - and should arrive at the impressive narrow point "Portes" early on in your hike, with very few other walkers around. Perfect photo opportunity!

Experience the gorge in relative solitude, allowing you to fully appreciate the scenery and enjoy the changing environments around you, as you pass from rocky riverbed and coloured rock faces, past the abandoned village of old Samaria, through shady pine forests and finally ascend to the exit in the mountainous village of Omalos.

Hiking distance approx 18km.

Spend the night in Omalos where you can enjoy the cool mountain air and tasty food.

For your return to civilization you will be back in the saddle. An easy but spectacular guided ride through mountain villages and the green valleys below as you ride from Omalos to Kissamos.

The sight of the blue Cretan sea will welcome you back to the North Coast and signify the satisfying conclusion to your multi day exploration of Samaria and the South coast!

E-bike distance approx 55km.

You will reach Kissamos around mid-afternoon. This is where we will part ways, leaving you with fantastic memories (and possibly some sore muscles!) as you continue your holiday or return to your home.
