Hiking

Walking for pleasure, popularly known as hiking, is an outdoors activity in which our area, Corinthia, excels. It is not just the accessibility of the trails that make Corinthia an excellent hiking destination, but also the variety in views and landscapes that can be enjoyed from its long shoreline and numerous mountains, even when walking relatively short trails; the historical monuments that can be visited along the way; and the gastronomy that can be tasted at the end of the journey.

In this page we present some of the trails that we ourselves have walked and photographed for you. Most of these reconnaissance trips have been done in the context of the project “Hiking Corinthia” and in cooperation with the travel community “Greekly“. For more information about these trails, as well as to organise a local guide to take  you to them, contact us.
