the corfu trail
The Corfu Trail is a unique long-distance footpath -stretching approximately 200 km- which runs from the white cliffs near Arkoudillas at Corfu' southernmost tip to the wild coastline of Cape Agia Ekatirini at its northernmost point!
By walking the Corfu Trail you will enjoy the island's delightful countryside and amazing landscapes!
The trail meanders through the island' rural districts and avoids developed areas, takes in beauty spots, biotopes, beaches, picturesque villages, monuments, monasteries and diverse landscapes.
The route is waymarked - in both directions- with aluminium CT yellow signs, supplemented by yellow paint arrows, spots and blazes, placed in strategic locations enroute.
The accurate Corfu Trail map-and guide book will help you to follow the trail! For two reasons walkers are advised to follow the route from south to north:
1: hikers will walk themselves into fitness, from the gentle south into the more mountainious region in the north.
2. In addition, the most spectacular scenery and the biggest concentration of highlights are in the north of the island.
The terrain varies, with rough footpaths, cobbled mule paths, dirt and gravel tracks, some minor roads and sandy and pebbly beaches. Highest point 900 m, lowest point sea level.
