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.
