Activities

All sorts of tours can help you explore in and around Corfu Town, whether on foot with Corfu Walking Tours, by bus with Corfu Sightseeing, or in the toy-train and horse-drawn carriage tours that start from the Spianada. Cruises along the coast or to neighbouring islands start from the New Port, with operators including Ionian Cruises and Sarris Cruises, while if you fancy learning to sail, contact Corfu Sea School at Gouvia marina not far northwest.

Venturing further afield, you can go horse riding with Trailriders in the village of Ano Korakiana, 18km northwest of Corfu Town, or enjoy a round on one of Greece's finest courses at the Corfu Golf Club not far from Ermones, 15km west.

The entire island has excellent walking. The Corfu Trail (www.thecorfutrail.com) traverses the island from north to south and takes between eight and 12 days to complete. You can organise a trip through Aperghi Travel, or simply arrange a day’s guided hiking with Corfu Walks & Hikes.
