One of the best things about living in Crete is the opportunity to hike all the gorges, we love the wildness, the clambering over fallen rocks, trying to find the coloured dot to see what way you're supposed to go next etc I can imagine that in the Summer and Autumn this gorge is a delightful, scenic, easy hike, with a bit of scrambling thrown in for a bit of excitement. Maybe the odd 'bootie' thrown in if your not careful when crossing the stream. Now us, being the adventurous sort, decided to do it yesterday. That's right, at the beginning of April after a really wet spring and with the snow still melting from the mountains. Our party of 7 seasoned hikers set off from Kalives at 8am and drove our 2 cars through the Cretan countryside to the beginning of the gorge. 4 of us were going to start from the top and the other 3 were going to start from the bottom and exchange car keys when we met in the middle. We started our descent at 9.45am looking forward to the 2.5 hour, 7km hike ahead of us. With the trees only just starting to bud, we could admire the rock face towering above as we hiked downwards but could imagine that in the summer the trees would provided welcome shade from the sun. There are handy km markers as you go and several drinking water taps - though I wouldn't rely on them to be working in the Summer - plus toilets at a small picnic area. The gorge is beautiful, with most of the walking along the bed of the gorge. This does mean that the path is stony and you need to watch where you are putting your feet. In some places the path takes you up the side of the gorge, from here you can admire the gorge below you as the water winds its way through boulders and over small waterfalls. As I said before, we did this gorge in April which means that the stream, which the path crosses A LOT, was more of a small river and the water icy cold. The only way to cross was hopping and jumping from rock to rock or in some cases, gathering large rocks and wood to make 'bridges'. By the end, 3 out of the 4 of us had fallen in, thankfully, without injury and just wet trousers/bottoms. The only potentially dangerous part was when we had to scramble up the side of the gorge to pass an enormous rock (we couldn't follow the path because of the water) it was very muddy and slippery with a steep drop and then when past the rock it was a steep descent back onto the path, 2 of us ended up with very muddy bottoms from sliding half the way down. What we didn't know was that the upward trio had reached this point and decided to turn back (no mobile phone signal) as they couldn't see a way onwards. We carried on crossing the river with no more dunkings until we finally reached the end. Once there, we had a short wait for one of the others to collect us in the car. The hike, which in normal conditions takes 2.5 hours, took us a total of 5 hours to complete and we all loved every minute of it (Apart from the muddy scramble) and can't wait to do it again, though we may do it a bit later in the year next time!!!!
We too had the joy of the 7.00 bus from Sougia. After a small refreshment from the taverna at the top (and entertainment from the goats) we paid our €2 each and set off. The path was never extremely rough but care was required in a couple of places. I wore walking shoes but would have been happier in boots. Being early we were in shade for almost all the walk. It was delightful. Peaceful and dramatic with added enjoyment of the sights and smells of the flora and fauna. There were two or three water taps on the way and a couple of loos. Luxury! We had a light lunch at the taverna at the bottom - after 7 km down, including 540m upward walking which added to the c580m elevation at the start of the walk meant that overall there was more than 1000m of descent. One of our party had a garmin. We then chose to follow the road back down to Sougia - if you include this then it might be about 8 miles. You could get a taxi - there are plenty of cards attached to nearby posts for most of the road walk to Sougia. We would have used the Sougia man and we stayed at the Lotos rooms - excellent accommodation and I cannot understand why it, as yet, does not appear on TripAdvisor. It will soon.
Taking the 7am bus from Sougia to the entrance of the gorge with breakfast at the taverna and a gentle ramble through the autumnal trees , 7 kms later the taverna at the exit provides delicious and refreshing selection of drinks and repas
Just done this walk with a group of experienced walkers. We had walked the Samaria Gorge two days previously so expected this to be a gentle work out for our sore calf muscles. Not so. Although some parts of this gorge has paths it is mostly scrambling over rocks and on rocky terrain with a lot of loose stones and gravel underfoot. The majority of the time we seemed to be either going up steep inclines or the reverse which was even worse given the terrain. There are quite a lot of steps built in which are very high for anyone of below average height. When the trail is in the watercourse there are many places where a wrong step could easily lead to serious injury. The wooden hand rails are mostly rotten or not there at all. Also it is not 7 kilometres as advertised, two of our group carried GPS sets and measured the distance as 8 miles. I have completed the Samaria Gorge twice now and would do it again bit not this walk.
Many people come on holiday to Lanzarote in winter due to it’s renown as a perennially sunny hotspot, with blue skies and winter temperatures averaging around 18° Celsius. It’s the summer peak that the island is famed for though when temperatures soar to around 28° Celsius. If you’re too hot, splash into the pool or get some watersports in on the beach!
