The Gorge of Samaria is the longest and most spectacular in Europe. Next to Knossos, it is the second most visited tourist attraction on the island. Located in the White Mountains of western Crete, Samaria has been a national park since 1962 and is home to hundreds of species of protected fauna and flora (70 endemic to the gorge). The Council of Europe has awarded Samaria the First Order European Diploma of Protection of the Natural Environment of Nature many times. This 16km trek is the ultimate hiking experience on Crete.
