The opening of the gorge from the top has been postponed to 23 April, due to the recent severe weather.

Samaria is not open yet, as we had a thunderstorm today, so may be too much water in the gorge to open it yet.

Samaria opened on the 23rd of April as mentioned by Alabastron. But it will be closed on the 28th because of the heavy rain that fell today. The problem is not with too much water in the gorge but has to do with possible damage to the path. Additionally some of the cliffs could become unstable after heavy rain leading to a higher risk of stones falling (although this tends to be more a problem after a long dry spell i.e. after autumn rains)
