Chania - Kournas Lake
On this tour we visit the most beautiful city of Crete and the freshwater lake of Kournas.
In the city of Chania, you have four hours free time, to visit the famous old market, the old town with its narrow streets and the picturesque old port, wonderful at any time of the day. There are also lots of shops where you can find local products and souvenirs.
The influence of many civilizations through time is evident on the city’s monuments and we can see old buildings of Venetian and Ottoman design that give the city an atmosphere of Florence and Venice, combined with the culture and the character of the Cretan people and their traditions.
Kournas is the only natural lake in Crete with fresh water, lying in the valley among the mountains, in a beautiful landscape protected by the European program “Natura 2000”. We will certainly enjoy the wonderful lake whether we want to swim, go for a walk in the countryside, watch and feed the ducks or rent pedal boats and have fun. We can also enjoy our meal (not included in the price) in one of the many taverns that offer traditional Cretan dishes at reasonable prices and amazing view.
