From Paleochora to Sfakia
- sea and mountains



A different way of experiencing the impressive mountains of Crete is to sail along the south coast from Paleochora to Sfakia is.


Every morning, the ferry - Samaria or Daskalogiannis - leaves Paleochora for Sougia with passengers
and not least goods for some of the small secluded villages along the coast.


The boats also carry the tourists to Sfakia after their walk through the Samaria gorge.
