The sky is neon blue, the sun is warm but not scorching and the great outdoors has just given birth to a fresh new cycle of wild flowers, rare orchids, migrating birds and colourful butterflies.

Corfu island has an extensive network of footpaths inherited from the days traffic came down to donkeys and goats.

Some are clearly marked whilst others ask for a sense of adventure in order to be discovered.

There is fantastic walking around Delfinia Hotels.

Corfu South is a natural playground for walkers and lovers of the great outdoors.

Korission Lake, Grava Cave, the villages of Chlomos and Agios Mattheos are but a few walking destinations you must put on your list of walks.

Every morning Daniela, our enthusiastic Activity Coordinator, takes Delfinia Hotel guests on a walk around the old village of Moraitika and other places of interest in the area.

There is always time for a refreshment, a Greek coffee stop or a brief chat with the locals.

Walking in Corfu is entirely safe, the people are helpful and it is very difficult to get lost.

We recommend, however, that you always carry a phone with you, wear sun screen and carry lots of water.

There are a couple of snakes to be weary of particularly if they are not getting out of your way.

Bees, wasps and mosquitoes are in the air so take some preventative measures with you.

There are many walking guides about Corfu, with an equal number of organised walking tours.

For the more experienced walker the Corfu Trail covers the entire length of Corfu from South to North.

If you can’t get here in time there is always late September and October to look forward to.
