Every day the number of tourists coming to Crete is systematically growing. Some of the people who have planned a holiday on the island in the near future are certainly also planning to go on hiking trails there. When creating your plans, however, it is worth bearing in mind that despite the fact that we are almost half of May, the trail leading through the Samaria Gorge is still inaccessible to tourists.
In a rather laconic post on their Facebook profile, the authorities of the Samaria National Park informed that entering the gorge would be possible immediately after the positive decision of the Decentralized Administration of Crete. For now, however, there are still no specific dates related to the possible inauguration of the tourist season in the Samaria Gorge.
So if you are in Crete at the moment and would like to go through the Samaria gorge, unfortunately you have nothing else to do but be patient and wait for an appropriate prompt from the local authorities. We will also try to follow the information and if the trail is made available to tourists, we will publish a news on our website notifying about this fact.
By the way, we recommend you a detailed description of several ways to organize a trip to the Samaria Gorge on your own .
