A tour of central-west Corfu

Companion Guide to The Corfu Trail
This new edition of the Guide can be purchased online in pdf format so that each day's information and guiding notes are on a single A4 sheet. The maps which accompany the notes are cross-referenced with the day they apply to and the sheets can be laminated for ease of use.
The Corfu Trail
A long-distance footpath which runs the length of the island. Approximately 220 km long and taking around 10 days, it meanders through all the island's rural municipalities and avoids heavily developed areas.
Flowers of Corfu
During an eight-day walk along the length of the Corfu Trail 150 different flowers were photographed by local author John Waller. The same flowers can be found in abundance across the island and are mainly in bloom from March to early June, and again in September and October.
There is a wealth and diversity of flora and fauna in Corfu. For those keen to observe the beauty of nature at close quarters, the island is a paradise for botanists, ornithologists, zoologists and photographers.
