Lake Kourna – Argiroupoli Falls – Georgioupoli

The village of Kournas is nestled in hills, and not far from Lake Kournas, which is the only freshwater lake in Crete

Just a short trip (4 km) away from Kournas is Georgioupolis, an ideal and easy get away to relax and enjoy the beauty nature has to offer. Beauty meaning, unusual landscapes, color variations on the water and the hills, depending on the time of day.
Take a stroll along the lakeshore, swim in the crystal clear water or take a romantic ride with a pedal boat.
Enjoy traditional dishes and delicacies in the taverns beside the lake while the scenery mesmerizes you.
This excursion includes a visit to the Allied military cemetery located in the port of Souda at Vlites. The graves of these 1,527 brave warriors reveal the magnitude of the Battle of Crete during WWII. The pristine care of this very impressive cemetery, demonstrates honor and dedication to the allied soldiers who defended the island.
We depart the sacred grounds of the cemetery and head up to the most powerful city of western Crete during the Minoan era. Tour the ancient city of APTERA, with its antiquities and castle .
And like any castle on a mountain top, the panoramic view is brilliant. You are sure to feel the awe of achievement of civilizations gone by.
Next stop Argiroupoli, where you have the opportunity to try authentic Cretan dishes next to the running streams of water that flow under the huge majestic trees. The sense of calm surrounds you and the word paradise comes to mind.
On returning, we can stop for refreshments in Georgioupolis, a well organized sandy beach front.
