Stories and Photos from Crete, Santorini and Milos
The famous Samaria Gorge is arguably a must see if you visit Crete. For me it's one of the very few places that I'd recommend to skip. Up to 3000 thousand people per day are shuffling through this 5 hour hike. There are toilets every 2 kilometers and everyone comes equipped if they were to embark on a multi day hike. Plus, the gorge isn't particularly beautiful compared to the others we hiked and the logistics to get to the trailhead and back is just a nightmare. Here are some (false) impressions. I only took photos at the best part of the gorge, and not a single one in the remaining 90% of the hike.
