Itinerary

Our driver will pick you up from your hotel at 08.00 and driving along the mainland coast to Peloponnese, we will have our first stop, 1 hour later, at the Canal of Corinth (6 km length and 80m height).

We continue to reach at Ancient Corinth, which was one of Saint Paul's beloved cities. We will have the chance to visit the Ancient Market and the Bema of Apostle Paul. We will walk at the same paths that Apostle of Nations walked and preached hundreds of years earlier.

Our next stop is at "Diakofto", from where you will take the Cog Railway (Odontotos) that links Kalavrita with Diakopto, through Vouraikos Canyon. It is one of the most beautiful natural sights and one of the most spectacular railway rides in Greece. It has been mentioned as the most beautiful train trip in Balkans! The little train travels through streams climbing the fantastic narrow gorge, up into the mountains, through tunnels, over waterfalls, along cliffs and through forests of pine and oleander. When the incline gets really steep it switches from regular track to a cog system. The journey ends at the town of Kalavryta.

Our driver will meet you there to continue the tour at the mysterious, magnificent and unique "Cave of the Lakes", a rare creation of Nature. Small and large lakes, 13 in total, with different colors each one, depending on the oxides contained in the rocks. You will see the wonderful «hanging bridge», the «waterfalls» «falling» and you will have the feeling of being on a floating corridor. Also you will admire strange stalactite formations. In winter when the snow melts, the cave is transformed into a subterranean river with natural waterfalls. The cave's explored length is 1,980 meters. The developed part of the cave is currently 500 meters long. You will start to explore the cave through an artificial tunnel that leads you directly to the second floor, whose sight is truly awe-inspiring. The passage of the lakes is made by elevated artificial bridges. We will have a stop for lunch at the picturesque village of Kalavrita.

In the afternoon we will return back to your hotel
