Complete Book of Corfu Walks

Walking in Corfu
For over 25 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. As a start, the file already contains sixty walks; by spring 2010, I aim to add another twenty; and the final tally, a year or two down the line, will be one hundred plus.

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). The areas do not necessarily coincide with Corfu's administrative districts (Dimoi). 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. Some areas, like the North East Coast and the Deep South, are not yet fully explored in this book, but spring 2010 will see them better represented.

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). Maps, which are expensive and time-consuming to produce, will be added to future editions. You may wish to laminate the sheets for ease of use during your walk. You can see an example of one the walks here.

The Complete Book of Corfu Walks is on sale at a price of 20 euros. Payment has been set up via the secure and user-friendly PayPal system. As soon as your payment is verified, you will receive by email the pdf copy (file size 750 KB approx).

Updating the Complete Book of Corfu Walks
As a buyer of the book, your name and email address will be kept on record, and you will be sent FREE UPDATES on an annual basis or upon request, for three years after purchase. Changes may be necessary due to bulldozing of footpaths, asphalting of tracks or development, or they may be implemented when we find a more attractive trail. As a Corfu Walks buyer, you are asked to send us information about any changes you encounter on the walks by email (please read the notes on changes in the book). I aim to make this website an interactive one so that we can all enjoy Corfu Walks together!
