Hike & Kayak Adventure - 2 Days

Join Manu and Fiona on this exciting Hike & Kayak Mini Samaria Adventure - 2 Days. Truly experience the wonders of nature in this human powered 2 day exploration of Samaria National Park, the White Mountains and the Cretan South.  Kayak along rugged coastlines, and hike the longest gorge in Europe, enjoying stunning views, spectacular nature and local wildlife. This is for you who is pretty fit and able to do 15km on the kayak first day and walking Samaria the next day. DETAILS OF YOUR TRIP Day 1: Sea Kayak - Rugged Southern Coastlines   Welcome meeting and briefing in the traditional town of Kissamos, followed by a car transfer to Sougia, on the South coast. 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. Overnight in Agia Roumeli. Day 2: Hike - The Longest Gorge   Today you will hike, at your own pace, the stunning gorge of Samaria – the longest gorge 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, where we will be waiting to collect you and transfer you to the town of Chania or Kissamos.   Scheduled dates May: 17/5 – 18/5 2021 – From 190€ (Single room supplement: 35€) June: 20/6 – 21/6 2021 – From 190€ (Single room supplement: 45€) July: 16/6 – 17/7 2021 – From 230€ (Single room supplement: 55€) August: 18/8 – 19/8 2021 – From 230€ (Single room supplement: 55€) September: 13/9- 14/9 2021 – From 190€ (Single room supplement: 45€) October: 26/10 – 27/10 2021 – From 190€ (Single room supplement: 35€) Note Activities & routes listed in the itinerary are weather dependent.
