This excursion shows you a little bit of everything:old traditional villages, churches, mountains, wild gorges , nice beaches and all the excitement that comes with them.
While the beaches of southern Rethymno will keep you more than occupied, there is more to this landscape than just the seafront, and opportunities for activities like hiking and birdwatching abound
From the Lake Kournas and the small Traditional villages of Argyroupoli ,Plakias to the wild Kourtaliotiko Ravine , one feels here as though heading into the wild in a land far removed from this earth
Our first stop on the way to the south coast is a view-point above the Lake Kournas which is the only freshwater lake in Crete where you will be able to take some magnificent photos.
Then we’ll find an old but very traditional village of Crete , Argyroupolis where the river Mouselas originates forming the famous springs of the Ancient Lappa .
We continue through the impressive Kotsifou ravine, where we stop to visit an old little church of St.Nicolas, to the picturesque village of Plakias to admire the small fishing boats and to enjoy a traditional lunch or to swim in the chrystal clear dark blue waters of the Libyan sea.
On our way back to Rethymno we take another road through the imposing Kourtaliotiko ravine .
