Recommended for groups of minimum 10 people and travel Agencies
Last minute reservations: We do accept reservations up to 48hrs prior the tour.
Board on a fully air-conditioned vehicle, meet your professional escort for a day and start your Corinth Canal journey.
Leaving Athens behind you will be heading for Corinth, a town where ancient meets modern. After an hour of pleasant ride, you will start seeing the impressive mountains of Peloponnese in the distance, sign that you are approaching the area of the man-made Corinth Canal. Corinth Canal separates the Mainland of Greece from Peloponnese and connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf, where the Ionian Sea “meets” the Aegean.
When arriving at Isthmia you will board on a local boat for an approximately 1 hour cruise along this narrow, astonishing rocky watery path. The canal is 6.346 meters long and 78 meters high and the view from the bottom all the way up absolutely amazing. Thousands of people see the Corinth Canal from the bridges above, but few get the experience of taking a boat trip down the Corinth Canal itself.
After this mini cruise you will get back on your vehicle for the return trip.
