Complete Book of Corfu Walks

Walking in Corfu
For over 30 years I have been walking the length and breadth of Corfu, hiking in its mountains, and rambling in its olive-blanketed hills and open plains. The more I explore, the more I confirm that the island of Corfu is a walker's paradise, with a huge variety of scenery, lovely footpaths and trails, many places of interest to aim for, and - despite heavy development in a few places - an unspoilt and venerable atmosphere.

Corfu Walks for Everyone
Here, in the Complete Book of Corfu Walks, I share with fellow enthusiasts the knowledge of walking I have gained over my years in Corfu. The file contains almost 100 walks in every corner of the island.

Corfu: The 'Walking Island'
For the purposes of this book, I have divided Corfu into 11 geographical regions, and the walks have been placed in them according to their starting point or according to which other walks they best link with (though their route may intrude into an adjoining region).. In many of the walking regions, the routes form a footpath network, and they may also link with routes and networks in adjoining regions. Thus, many locations are ideal as a base for a walking holiday. In addition, the walking regions are all linked with each other by way of the Corfu Trail, the island's long-distance walking route.

Corfu Walks and You
We have designed the Complete Book of Corfu Walks in pdf format so that each walk's information and guiding notes are on a single A4 sheet (a few walks run to two sheets). You may wish to laminate the sheets for ease of use during your walk. You can see an example of one the walks here.

Maps
Unfortunately, graphics greatly increase the size of a pdf file in this format, and their inclusion would prevent dispatch by email of the document. As a result, this book does not contain maps. The best map of Corfu is Freytag and Berndt's 1:50,000 edition, though it is not 100% accurate, and it does not depict most footpaths.
