Why does it take so long to open the Gorge? This is a disaster for Agia Roumeli and maybe for all of Sfakia.

"On June 12, if there are no weather-related issues, the Samaria Gorge is expected to open to the public, according to information from zarpanews.gr. The restoration work on the falls has been completed ... This year it is envisaged that those who want to walk through the gorge will have to wear a mask as a protective measure against the coronavirus ... "

The Samaria Gorge is open now. And the public busses depart from Chora Sfakion and from Sougia at about 18.30 hrs.

It seems to be a good time to walk through the gorge, since at least yesterday there were only few people who arrived in Aghia Roumeli.
