Samaria Gorge Run

Omalos, a small village 38 km south of Chania in the White Mountains (Lefka Ori) of Crete. White Mountains’ National Park is the only national park in Crete. It centres around the Samariá gorge, at an altitude of 1,200m and continues down to Ayia Rouméli, on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Along with the surrounding slopes and a number of smaller gorges branching off from it, Samaria Gorge forms the whole of the area designated as a national park, a status that offers protection to over 450 species of plant and animal, 70 of which are endemic to Crete.
In the prefecture of Chania (also written “Hania”), the Samaria gorge is the longest in Europe (total length 16km), and one of the most impressive gorges in Greece. It starts from Xylóskalo, at an altitude of 1,230m.
The width of the gorge is 150m at its widest point and 3m at its narrowest. Visitors can descend into the gorge and walk for about 6 to 8 hours. Even though the path runs downhill it requires strong, comfortable footwear and some degree of physical fitness. But it’s well worth the effort. At the end of the path, swimming, taverna lunches and picnics under a canopy of trees within full view of the Mediterranean Sea all await the visitors.

Chania is the capital city, a place where different civilizations have flourished throughout the centuries. Wandering around the Old Town’s maze-like alleys with the beautiful Venetian mansions, the fountains and the elaborate churches will help you discover well-preserved historical monuments. Chania is one of the most touristic developed Municipalities of Crete, due to its rich heritage, both in places of significant archaeological importance and in the innumerable preserved monuments in the city of Chania and in other areas of the Municipality, which constitute evidence of the long history of Chania. One of the most significant archaeological sites that are being preserves till today is the archaeological site of Kasteli, where visitors can see the ruins of the ancient Kydonia, the ancient Aptera and Intzedin castle.
Chania includes the old and new city. It is one of the most beautiful and picturesque cities in Greece and for food lovers, it's a paradise!

Furthermore, it is famous for its wonderful beaches with golden sand and crystal-clear blue water. It is a fact that some of the most wonderful and famous beaches of Greece are located in Chania. The visitors can find well-organized beaches with sunbeds, umbrellas, water sports, restaurants, taverns and coffee-bars, which provide high-quality services or can discover the pure, unexplored beaches. Within the geographical borders of the Municipality of Chania there are 11 beaches that have been awarded the Blue Flag (Stalos, Agii Apostoli 1, Agii Apostoli 2, Chrissi Akti, Agia Marina, Kalamaki, Nea Chora, Marathi, Stavros, Agios Onoufrios, Kalathas) and many other – organized or not – that are worth enjoying them. The total length of organized beaches in Municipality of Chania is about 10 km.
