Castle of Acrocorinth Hike near Corinth

Acrocorinth ruins
Hike to the top of Acrocorinth, one of the biggest castles in Greece. This moderate trek takes you past unique natural springs to incredible views of the sea and surrounding countryside. Along the way, your local guide will share interesting stories about the area's history, geology, and cultural significance, including its "hidden" path to Penteskoufi, the very top of the fortress.

You'll follow natural routes through the hillside and up rocky terrain, passing under several defense gates. The castle's location is not only cultural but also strategic. At the top, visit the castle ruins scattered around the hill with a scenic mountainous backdrop. You'll find old, preserved walls and remnants of temples, theaters, and more. If you can make it to the very top (the trail is quite steep), it's worth the effort, as the views are spectacular!
