Best of Corinth

Top itineraries and travel advice in and around Corinth
Corinth is best known for its grapes and the Corinthian raisin, as vast swathes of vineyards give visitors the chance to follow the grape journey from antiquity to the present. The region is just a few hours from Athens and offers activities like hiking and cycling as well as slow holidays along the seaside of the Corinthian Gulf. Cross the Corinth Canal by boat, or travel out to the Acrocorinth ancient acropolis.

Previous kimkim travelers have taken advantage of the spot to go dolphin-watching in the Corinthian Gulf or take a “triple bath” in the waters where Achilles became immortal, as you swim under a waterfall, in a lake, and in the sea. Visit a reconstruction of a 19th-century Greek village for a farm-to-table meal that you harvest yourself, or head in search of adrenaline with a river trekking or canyoning trip in the gorges of Krios, Fonissa, and Kallithea or rock climbing in Frygani.
