1. Lakes of Crete: A tour to Authentic Aqua Paradise
Did you know that Crete has lakes? This Private Guided Tour lets you discover Crete’s Lakes, their incredible flora and fauna and the Natura 2000 environment that engulfs them! We start our journey by visiting the Lake of Agia and the neighbouring water reservoir that provides water to the lush cultivated valleys nearby. To understand the scale of the lakes in Crete, we ascend to an elevated spot, perfect for photographs and sightseeing. Afterwards, we hop inside private organic farming cultivation and get to see the Natura 2000 environment, the river that gives water to this region and taste the organic fruits of Crete, right off the tree! We continue our private excursion, heading east, where the lake of Kournas is located, one of the biggest sweetwater lakes in Crete. After admiring the natural habitat, we have time off to eat lunch or drink at many of the neighbouring taverns overlooking Kournas Lake and a chance to ride the famous water bicycles in the lake and blend in with the natural habitat. Then we continue heading east, through lush vegetation and picturesque villages of mainland Crete to visit Amari Lake and Potamon Dam, with its breathtaking nature, and impeccable views. After a small introduction, time is given to relax and enjoy the sights, grab a snack overlooking the gorgeous artificial lake and continue to an elevated spot for sightseeing and photographs. This relaxed journey reveals to you the lakes of Chania & Rethimnon and is perfect for families and couples, as it is laid back, provides you with great memories and gives you the privacy and relaxation you need due to the many stops throughout this private tour.
