This trip leads you on the best walking trail of Corfu, in a never-ending symphony of blue and green: green mountains from where the sea is never out of sight, ancient cities which still bear traces of a glorious past, the enchanting wild nature.
You will visit the islands of Corfu, with its markets and narrow cobbled streets, and Paxos, with its Venetian-styled palaces; you will walk on the slopes of Mount Pantokrator, the highest mountain on the island, among wild flowers and beautiful views on the Albanian mountains. You will immerse yourselves in the out of time atmosphere of a wilder, not so touristic Greece, which offers its products with great generosity: from goat cheese to olive oil, not to mention the fresh fish of its coasts.
A private transfer will bring you from the airport of Corfù to your accomodation in the southern part of the island: to prove yourselves that you are really one holiday, jump in the blue water for a quick bath or explore the colorful streets of the island. If only your evening is free don't worry: a dinner with fresh fish and olive oil is a great way to celerate the beginning of your trip.
After breakfast you will be taken to the beginning of today roundtrip, Issos beach: your route starts here and runs through the Korysson lagoon, where one of the James Bond movies was filmed. Your route continues along the East Coast, going back to Corfu through the green Chlomatiana.
Today route starts from Stronggyli: from here you will walk along a nice route on the slopes of Mount Agii Deka, one of the highest peaks of central Corfu with its 676 metres. You will then walk mule paths through characteristic mountain villages to reach Sinarades: you can stop here and have a nice Greek coffee before going back to Corfù, which you can easily reach through public transportation.
Today you will have your morning free to explore the roads and squares of Corfu, before heading to the Island of Paxos. You may visit the highlights of this island: art galleries, museums, archeological sites. Another option is discovering hidden gardens and squares.
After a boat trip to Paxos you will have your night free to explore your home for the next few days, a peaceful island where time seems to have stopped.
Today you will discover the island of Paxos: you will walk up the hill accompanied by cicadas singing, walking through rural villages and cities like Gaios. You will then cross the island to reach the Triptos arch, and Ozias, the ancient capital, before reaching the Island of Moggonisi. You can choose either to walk to you hotel or by boat.
A private transfer will take you from your hotel to the Gaios port, where you will embark to go back to Corfu. The starting point of today route is Rekini: you will walk on a path at the feet of Mount Pantokrator, in the Northern part of Corfu, passing through villages where time seems to have stopped. At the end of your route you will be taken to your hotel next to the beach. If you are travelling in spring, you may be so lucky to walk among blooming orchids.
Today's finale takes us to the ridge of the Pantokrator for stunning views of the nearby Albanian mountains. Picturesque ancient villages, including the almost-abandoned highlight of Old Perithia, then you will descend to the tip of Corfu's northern coast, at the very end of the Corfu Trail. You may want to celebrate your trip with a nice dinner: we suggest you to try the octopus, cooked with wine.
A transfer will bring you to the Corfu airport. Our services end here.
