Corinth Canal. The Corinth Canal connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It cuts through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland, arguably making the peninsula an island.
We stop and pick up our wine from one of the many wineries of Nemea; the Greek Napa Valley. The wine is included in your lunch too!
Arcadia Mountain villages
We climb up the Arcadia mountain range of Mainalon with its famous European hiking trails to visit the stonebuilt villages such as Dimitsana, Stemnitsa, Laggadia, and more hidden spots.
The Food Experience; the highlight of the tour.
We do a short drive through the Arcadia mountains to meet your lady cook for today enjoying Greek coffee or even Ouzo on the way. She will open her home for us to watch and taste her traditional cooking. And of course, we will know all about your likes & dislikes to make lunch a treat! Vegetarian? Just let us know in advance. Easy! This is Greece.
The Arcadia cliff-hanging monasteries
Several options depending on the time we spend while exploring.
We can visit one of the amazing cliff-hanging monasteries until our lunch is ready.
Lousios River. We explore the amazing Lousios gorge and the river while waiting to be treated to our lunch & drinks. Lunch and drinks the way even locals would love to find the way to do.
Stemnitsa. The jewelers’ village! Beautiful, authentic, stone-built! Our lunch place before heading back to Athens via a different route through the forests and the mountains.
Dimitsana stone built village above Lousios river & gorge!
