Samaria Gorge : The Samaria Gorge in Crete  is claimed to be longest Gorge in Europe, it runs between two mountains in the White Mountain chain. To the west is Mount Valakias and to the East Lefka Ori. These Mountains rise to 2000m (6500ft).
In Winter the river running through the Gorge is a violent torrent due to the torrential mountain rains, in Summer however it is reduced to a meandering stream. In Spring and Autumn the Gorge can be closed to visitors at short notice as sudden rain can suddenly turn the stream into a very dangerous fast flowing river. The day after we did the walk they closed the Gorge.
The Gorge is 16km (10miles) long and has been a National Park since 1962, when you reach the gates at the end of the walk you have a further 2km (1.25mile) to walk to the coastal village of Aya Roumeli  where you can get on the only transport to take you back to ‘civilisation’, the ferry to Hora Sfakion.
