Samarian rotko - pitkä vaellus - 35 EUR

Vaella kuuluisa Samarian rotko! Vaellus alkaa Omaloksen kylästä laskeutumisella puisia portaita alas rotkoon Valkeiden vuorten kohotessa ylväinä ympärillä. Lähtopiste Xyloskalossa on 1250 metrin korkeudella merenpinnan yläpuolella naapurivuoren Gigiloksen huippujen noustessa aina 2080 metrin korkeuteen. DETAILS OF YOUR TRIP   Bussi noutaa sinut retkipysäkiltäsi aikaisin aamulla ja matka jatkuu Omaloksen tasangolle, jossa aamiaismahdollisuus pienessä tavernassa ennen vaellukselle lähtöä. Retkellä on mukana englantia, saksaa ja kreikkaa puhuva ammattitaitoinen ja kokenut opas. Opas on antaa tarvittavat tiedot vaellusta varten ja huolehtii käytännönjärjestelyistä kuten sisäänpääsylippujen ja laivalippujen hankinnasta.Sisäänpääsymaksu rotkoon (5 euroa, alle 15-vuotiaat maksutta) ja laivalippu Sougiaan 10euroa (6-11-vuotiaat 5 euroa) tulee maksaa oppaalle retkelle lähdettäessä.  Vaellus alkaa aamiaisen jälkeen ja jokainen saa vaeltaa rotkon omaan tahtiinsa. Opas kulkee ryhmän viimeisenä tarkistaen, että kaikki sujuu hyvin ja huolehtii, että kaikki saapuvat ajallaan rotkon päätepisteeseen, Agia Roumelin kylään. Etukäteen ilmoitetussa tapaamispaikassa opas jakaa laivaliput. Kylässä on uintimahdollisuus ja useita tavernoita, joissa voi nauttia lounasta. Laiva lähtee noin klo 17:15 kohti Sougian kylää ja kestää tunnin. Bussikuljetus takaisin Plataniakseen lähtee välittömästi kaikkien ollessa paikalla ja saapuminen Haniaan on noin klo 20:00. Plataniakseen saavutaan luonnollisesti jo hieman aiemmin.   Huomioithan ettei retki sovellu sydänvikaisille, iäkkäämmille henkilöille eikä raskaana oleville. Vaellus taittuu alle kuudessa tunnissa ja siinä ajassa ehdit hyvin valokuvata ja pitää taukoja tarpeen mukaan. Älä turhaan kiirehdi vaan nauti ympärillä olevasta luonnosta! Vaellus on selkeästi merkitty ja pääasiassa kulkua alaspäin, joten illalla kunnon venyttely on paikallaan. Muistathan laittaa jalkaasi tukevat ja mukavat kengät. Sandaalit kannattaa suosiolla jättää hotellille.
