We are holidaying in Crete at Almyrida. My partner, son and daughter and friend all want to walk the Smaria Gorge. I have done this many years ago and being slightly more heavier, older and unfitter have decided to give it a miss. We will be hiring a car and I am wondering how easy it would be for me to drop them at Omalos and then meet them when they come off the ferry. Is the journey quite straight forward or would it be best to book an excursion for them all. Also what time does the gorge open?
Any help and ideas would be great.
