The perfect alternative for those who wish to admire the raw beauty of Samaria gorge without walking the whole of it.

We arrive at Sfakia, where we take our boat to Agia Roumeli. From there, you can walk in the opposite direction within the majestic gorge and getting back to Agia Roumeli, you have the chance to spend the rest of your day swimming in the crystal clear waters of the Libyan Sea. Later on, you can enjoy your meal in one of the seaside taverns, where we also meet our guide to board the boat to get back to Sfakia.
