Heraklion - Samaria
Out of all the gorgeous sites Crete has to offer, there are some you just HAVE to see ! One of them is Samaria gorge, our 9th worldwonder and the European counterpart to the Grand Canyon. The European community repeatedly named it 'Best National Park' over the last years. Why? Very simple: an amazing, ever-changing scenery; a deep ravine immersed in glaring sunshine, deep shadows and mist, refreshing crystal clear springs and rocks that have been shaped by aeons of winter torrents.
