Omalos village / Omalos Plateau
The plateau of Omalos is about 40 kilometers from the city of Chania (at least 1 hour by car), at a height of 1040 – 1250 meters between the peaks of the Lefka Ori (White Mountains). During the Winter it boasts a unique view of beauty as the area is covered with snow. The frequency of visit is high both in summer and winter by Greek and foreign visitors.
In the village there are some taverns where you can enjoy a wonderful and complete meal with pure local products and some hotels where you can stay if you decide to cross the Samaria Gorge early in the morning or if you just want to stay in one very quiet and special place away from cosmopolitan places.
