West Crete

This excursion takes you to the west side of the island. It includes a visit to the towns of Chania and Rethymnon, as well as to the well – known Lake of Kournas. First we will pass the Ida range that includes the highest mountain of Crete, Psiloritis (2453m high), then our tour will take us to the old town of Rethymnon. A graphic Cretan town, so characteristic and unique, that nothing similar is met anywhere else on the island of Crete. We will have time to relax at the beautiful scenery at the old port of Rethymnon. Chania is our next stop, the capital city of the prefecture of Chania. The old harbor, where the small fishing boats can moor, is a perfect place to enjoy a coffee and observe the liveliness of the city. Here you can see the cross – shaped closed Marketplace and the leather – Market Street. Next stop is the lake of Kournas, the only natural sweet water lake in Chania, where you will have your lunch.
