Whether you fly in to Chania or Iraklion, it is necessary to get to Hora Sfakion by either bus or taxi. The bus is by far the cheapest method but a reliable pre-booked taxi can be taken from the Airport via Sfakia Taxis (www.taxi-sfakia.com).
The journey takes approximately 2hrs..
From Hora Sfakion it is necessary to get the cheap, regular ferry across to Loutro, a journey of 20 minutes. Loutro is worth every minute of this spectacular journey through the mountains and gorges of Crete.
