01 Aug Corinth Canal Crossing
The Corinth Canal is a 6km canal that connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea and separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland. Construction was completed in 1893, by the same team that went on to build the Canal of Suez (completed in 1869). Several rulers in antiquity dreamed of digging a cutting through the Isthmus.

The sailing across the canal is a unique experience. The color of the water has many amazing shades of emerald and the rocks, with their sprouting bushes and pines, rise imposingly at 70 meters. The trip starts from the port of Isthmia, which is located near the exit of the canal in the Saronic Gulf, heads west towards Posidonia and returns. The trip takes about an hour.
Be a piece of this extraordinary construction project and admire the natural beauty of the Isthmus.
