Sougia to / from Omalos, entrance of the Samaria gorge
The drive from Sougia to the Omalos plateau, takes about 50 minutes.
Holidaymakers who stay in Sougia and wish to cross the Samaria gorge often prefer taking a taxi to Omalos instead of the bus, if and when a bus route is available, and return to Sougia by the ferry in the evening.
Those who leave their cars at Omalos, return to Sougia by the ferry and will then need a taxi to go back to Omalos so as to retrieve their cars.
In such a case, it is essential that you reserve a taxi in advance.
