Full description
Start your day of adventure at your first stop of the trip, a local oil mill. Here you will have the opportunity to see how Crete's famous olive oil is produced on this fascinating and informative outing. Follow up your trip to the mill with a visit to the charming white chapel dedicated to Saint Nicholas in the village of Georgioupolis. Get up close to one of the most photographed landmarks in this part of Crete and be sure to grab a few memorable holiday snaps for yourself. In addition to the lovely photos, admire the architectural structure of the church, built more than a century ago on a rocky islet about 100-meters into the sea.  Follow on your journey through Crete and make a quick stop at the waterfalls of Argyroupolis. These waterfalls are responsible for the rich vegetation that surrounds the village, a truly magical and refreshing experience. Your last stop of the tour, lasting roughly 2-hours, will give you enough time to enjoy a swim and eat Cretan delicacies at the many taverns that are located around the lake.

This tour is extremely beautiful. I can’t choose an appropriate adjective for the beauty of Lake Kournas. The entire trip is definitely a 10/10. Our lovely driver Costas and our tour guide Andreas are like our friends already. They are very fun to talk to and we felt really happy for the whole day.

Super tour - really only to be recommended! By chance we booked three tours with the same tour guide Barbara and the driver Costa from Markidis Reisen and were thrilled every time. with what kindness and joy both carry out the tour and all the information you get during the tour - simply unique! We have experienced many tour guides, but Barbara was by far the best! Not to forget, of course, the content of the tour. Here you get to know Crete from another side. A lot of nature. Be sure to book and attend.

nothing to say about our guide who was very professional but staying only an hour at the lake when you can swim and/yes pedalo it's frustrating In addition the meal was not terrible
