Kournas Lake, Georgioupoli beach, White Mountains, Argyroupoli Springs
We start our tour from Rethymno, driving along the north coast before reaching the lake Kournas,
the only lake of Crete. The fresh water derives from the towering White Mountains. We can have
a coffee next to the lake.
Afterwards, we will visit Georgioupolis beach which is a fine choice for swimming. The sea is clean
and the beach is listed as one of the Blue Flag beaches awarded by the European Union.
We will continue to Askifou Village on the White Mountains to visit the war museum which is
small, , but impressively original. It commemorates the Second World War.
Back on the main road, we continue into the village of Imbros with the famous gorge.
Our next stop is Argyroupolis village which combines unique natural beauty and history. There
are small picturesque waterfalls, stone built and wooden watermills and enormous plane trees
offering cool shade. We can have a traditional lunch at a beautiful restaurant next to the waterfalls
where you may even fish a trout yourself.
