Samaria Gorge

Highly recommended
The road up to the gorge (16km long) crosses the Omalos Plateau (1 050m). After passing through Omalos, the road ends in Xiloskalo on the edge of the gorge. First a flight of wooden steps and then a twisting path lead down into the depths of the gorge to a viewing platform. There is an impressive view of the ravine between sheer rock walls rising to over 2 000m. The path soon reaches the gorge's narrowest point (the Iron Gate) measuring no more than 3m in width.
