Kournas Lake, Georgioupolis, Ancient Aptera, El. Venizelos Graves, Chania Lighthouse

Kournas Lake is the only lake in Crete with freshwater. Next to Kournas village and about 4 km from the beach of Georgioupolis. You can see the ducks while you walk beside the lake, you can ride a pedalo and of course you can swim or have coffee. This excursion starts from Kournas lake and then continues to Georgioupolis. We can have our coffee there ,next to the beach and take pictures of the small church in the sea. After that we continue to famous historical place of Aptera, the most known town in west Crete in Minoan years. Just 15 km before Chania and above the sea we can enjoy the fortress and the magic view. So, going on our next stop will be at El. Venizelos graves 5km east of the town of Chania, up in the hill in a beautiful park with garden and very nice view.

We will have lunch at Chania in the old town in front of the Lighthouse. There are traditional tavernas and modern restaurants for everyone’s appetite.
