Day 2 - Chania - Sougia (3-5 hrs)
After breakfast we leave by bus to Agia Irini while our bags will continue to Sougia; we rejoin them in the evening. From village Agia Irini we walk through the Agia Irini gorge to Sougia (3 hrs walk). This is a lesser-known gorge than Samaria, but rivals its neighbour for beauty and spectacle.
Day 3 – Around Sougia (3-4 hours)
For those who are interested in the Greek history, today’s walk will be a rewarding one with the visit of the ancient site of Lissos, a spa in Roman times with a mosaic floor as highlight. Pic-nic in the deserted Lissos bay. Overnight in Sougia.
Day 4 - Sougia - Omalos - Samaria Gorge (5-6 hrs)- Agia Roumeli.
An early local bus (or car) brings us to the plain of Omalos (Omalos means “smooth”). A short lift takes us to the head of the Samaria gorge, Europe's longest and certainly one of its most spectacular. The descent begins on a good path in shady pine forest, dropping steeply and crossing the river before reaching the deserted village of Samaria. Soon the path is in the riverbed itself before we climb away again at the point where the (underground) river re-emerges. Now the path criss-crosses the river before bringing us out to the village of Agia Roumeli and the sea. After a swim and/or drinks, we settle into our rooms.
Day 5 - Agia Roumeli to Loutro (5 hrs)
A coastal walk. We make an early start in the cool of the morning, walking on sand and shingle next to the sea to the picturesque chapel of Agios Pavlos, said to mark the place where Saint Paul landed on Crete. Next to the chapel is a freshwater spring coming out of the pebble beach. After 5 hours walk we arrive at the small port of Loutro. Overnight in pension.
Day 6 - Loutro
Today we have two options. Either walk to Anopolis village, where we see the most “authentic” of the village communities in full swing - men in head-dress and local costume, and descent the Aradena gorge (5-6 hrs), (or an easiest root) or remain in Loutro for a most relaxing day at the blue sea of Liviko Pelagos.
Day 7 - Loutro to Chora Sfakion (2 hrs) and return to Chania.
We follow the coastal path to Chora Sfakion this morning, stopping for a swim at Freshwater Beach. This 2-hour stretch has some fine path-building on a steep rockface overlooking the deep blue sea. From Chora Sfakion a bus brings us to Chania.
