Kournas Lake Tours

With its shimmering azure waters framed by the rocky peaks of the surrounding White Mountains, Kournas Lake is the island’s only freshwater lake and the centerpiece of one of Crete’s most picturesque landscapes. A tranquil retreat for both locals and visitors, Kournas Lake is at its best in the summer months, when the receding water levels reveal vast white sand beaches and popular pastimes include swimming, sailing, canoeing and hiking around the lakeside.

Kournas Lake is also a Natura 2000 preservation area and renowned for its bird and marine life, with a huge variety of species including water snakes, herons, cormorants and the rare Diamondback Terrapin.

Practical Info

Kournas Lake is located in west Crete, 4 km from Georgioupolis.
