Owing to the size of the coaches, and the limited amount of accommodation available in Kastri/Keratokampou, it is necessary to limit the number of people on the post-conference field trip to 30.  Places will be allocated and reserved on a strictly first-come, first-served basis, following receipt of the registration form and payment.

Advance warning: Before registering for the workshop and/or post-workshop field trip, please bear in mind the nature of some of the activities involved.

1) The excursion to Samaria Gorge will involve travelling two hours by coach on narrow, windy roads past rugged mountain scenery to the small village of Sougia, followed by a 50 minute ferry ride along the spectacular southern coastline to the start of the trail up Samaria Gorge.  The first part of the trail is paved and is easy walking. The latter part of the trail passes over rough, bouldery terrain and crosses some narrow wooden bridges.  A number of stops will be made along the way to discuss geomorphological and sedimentological evidence of palaeofloods.  We will return along the trail the same way.  The grade is moderate and the trail is about 4 km long.  Following the walk, we will return to Sougia by 50 minute ferry ride, followed by a 2-hour coach ride on narrow, windy roads back to Chania.

2) The first day of the post-workshop excursion will involve travelling a full day (6-7 hours, not including a number of stops) by coach on narrow, windy roads past rugged mountain and coastal scenery to the small villages of Kastri and Keratokampou.  The second day will involve a strenuous walk over very rough, bouldery terrain up the Anapodaris Gorge to examine geomorphological and sedimentological evidence of palaeofloods.  The grade is moderate and the return trip is about 7 km long.  The third day will involve travelling a full day (6-7 hours, not including a number of stops) by coach on narrow, windy roads past rugged mountain and coastal scenery back to Chania.
