Walking in Corfu

Corfu is the second largest of the Ionian Islands in the west of Greece. It has long been known for its scenic beauty and today, away from the few resorts, Corfu remains a beautiful and surprisingly traditional island. A great way to explore this picturesque island and get well off the beaten track is on foot.

Known as a walker’s paradise, Corfu has many trails between towns and villages, passing over hills, through olive groves and past ancient monasteries. Trails also wind down to sandy beaches and rocky coves. The highest point on the island is the summit of Mount Pantokrater (917m) which has wonderful views down over the island and across to nearby Albania.

Country Information

The most famous trail on Corfu is the 220 kilometre ‘Corfu Trail’, a long distance trail that was opened in 2001. This stretches the length of the island from Kavos in the south to Agios Spyridon in the north, passing some of the best coastal and hillside scenery. Mount Pantokrater and Corfu’s second highest peak Agii Deka (576 m) can be climbed en route. For those short on time the trail is divided into two, Corfu Trail North and Corfu Trail South.

Most visitors arrive through Corfu Town, an elegant Venetian town protected by two castles. It is well worth allowing some time to explore this historic town.

Corfu enjoys a Mediterranean climate with mainly warm dry days from May to September. This combined with its green, diverse scenery and traditional atmosphere makes it a great place to take a hiking holiday.
