Amazing views and quite easy hike for experienced people, with a non common ending: swimming into the sea at the end of the trail.

Reviewed by: Korneel D, September 2016

The day went perfectly as planned. The guide and bus driver were excellent and very helpful... and of course, the samaria gorge is absolutely amazing. A long descent, but once you arrive, the bay and sea water are very rewarding. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
