The Samaria Gorge is a national park and a major attraction on the island of Crete. A must at this Gorge is to complete a walk from the Omalos plateau to Agia Roumeli on the Libyan Sea. Along your travels in this park you may come across a village that was abandoned in 1962 called Samaria, the walk takes around 5 to seven hours so can be hard especially in the summer time. Without a doubt the most famous part of this park is place know as the Gates or Iron Gates, where the gorge closes into a width of just four metre and sours up to a height of almost 300 metres. It is strictly forbidden to stay overnight in this gorge.

Greece is beautiful no matter where you go, each island has its own unique presence and beauty, so why not get out of the hotel and off those beaches and venture into unknown and you will get to see some of the most beautiful places in the county. There is no question why so many people from all over the world go on Greece holidays to explore its natural beauty.
