White Mountains National Park in Crete centres around the Samariá gorge. At a length of 16km the Samaria gorge is the longest in Europe, and one of the most impressive gorges in Greece. The trek starts at an altitude of 1,230m at Xylóskalo and descends into the gorge for between 6 to 8 hours until it reaches the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Inhabited for thousands of years, the gorge of Samaria played an important role as a place to flee from the oppression of foreign invaders. I made the trek in 2013, on the last day of the season.
