  • From Georgioupolis: Roundtrip Transfer to Samaria Gorge

    1. From Georgioupolis: Roundtrip Transfer to Samaria Gorge

    Explore the famous Samaria Gorge on a trip along the northern coastline of Crete and through the White Mountains up to the Omalos Plateau. Samaria Gorge became a National Park in 1962 and today, it is the last natural refuge for the Cretan goat species known as Kri-Kri. Depart early in the morning and board a coach which will pick you up from your hotel. After a comfortable drive, arrive at the plateau of Omalos for a small break before heading to the entrance of the gorge. The start of the hiking trail through the gorge is at a height of 1200m. On the route, pass by rich vegetation and through the tall rock walls known as the "Iron Gates". Fill up your water bottle at one of the springs in the gorge. At the end of the 17km walk, reach the Libyan Sea. There, at the beach of Ayia Roumeli, enjoy a refreshing swim or sit at one of the taverns until a ferry takes the group to Chora Sfakion...

    Absolutely breathtaking scenery! It’s a must once in a lifetime! However really be prepared it is not for everybody. Trekking Shoes should be a must as you walk mostly on stones the whole path and they are slippery its extremely easy to get injured. Take your time and be careful. A normal time to get through it is around 6-7 hours with pauses to eat fill your water bottle take pictures. You should start early as possible to have plenty of time to enjoy it! All in all an epic experience! The guides are great and they all know each other and are there to help everyone. Everyone must go in their own pace. Don’t forget to bring money as the entrance is extra 5 EUR and the boat is extra 11 EUR to take you to Sfakia. We did it with Meki and she was great! She told us so many things also about Crete in general! She was also very funny and always smiling as her smiley on her backpack! Thanks a lot Meki from Ballos Travel Agency and Marcos our driver, the best driver!

  • Georgioupolis: Full-Day Trip to Elafonisi Island

    On this full-day trip, you’ll travel from Georgioupolis to the southwest corner of Crete and spend a relaxing day on the pink beaches of the small island of Elafonisi.  During the 3-hour drive to the island, you can sit back and relax, admiring the beauty of the lush green landscapes, traditional villages, and a small church built inside a cave along the way. After taking a short break to stop for a drink, you’ll reach your destination, Elafonisi,  a picturesque bathing paradise with an island that can be easily reached by foot. The water on the island is shallow, clear and gleams with beautiful shades of blue and green. You’ll have plenty of time to unwind on the beach and to purchase snacks and drinks on the island before returning to Georgioupolis in the evening.

    It was a very nice trip. Claudia, the guide, was very nice and informative. The time allotted at the beach (3,5-4 hrs) was a perfect amount of time at the beach and the drive to the beach were beautiful. The only bad thing of the entire trip was the amount of people on the bus who repeatedly took their masks off no matter how many times they were asked to put them back on.
