Guided walks along the Corfu Trail

The spectacular 220 km Corfu Trail runs the length of the island along beaches, through olive groves, across farmland, over mountains and beside rivers and streams. Join Richard Simpson throughout the walking season (April to June, September and October) for any or all of the 10 walks that comprise the Corfu Trail.

My Corfu Trail: Day 4

Unwind with the trail

Let the sea caress your toes as you stride across the beaches; relish the spectacular views over the coastlines and relax as you enjoy a well-earned picnic lunch in the olive groves or the lush valleys of the interior. The pace is set by you and need not be strenuous; there will plenty of time to take photos and for refreshments… but the terrain, can be quite challenging, especially in the North, and walking poles can be very helpful!

The trail starts at the Southern tip of the island at Asprokavos.
