Dassia Hike & Corfu Town

Dassia Hike & Corfu Town

After breakfast we set off for an introduction hike around Dassia and get ourselves familiarized with the area. After a short stroll over the beach, we’ll explore the green hills behind Dassia. The route follows narrow paved roads, ideal terrain to test your walking shoes and get used to the climate. At the turning point our reward is the stunning view. On the crossroad at the village Kato Korakiana we can stop for a coffee before returning back to the Aronda in Dassia.

Coast to Coast

Today we’ll set off for a long hike, traversing the island from west to east. We take our private coach to the charming village of Gianades where the keen hikers amongst us can set off for an extra 1 hour hike to the west coast, above the high cliffs of Cape Plaka or if you wish to have a leisurely start to the day, enjoy a coffee on the main square of Gianades. When everybody returns we take our route which meanders through rapidly changing scenery. We will descend towards the Ropa Valley once home to the central lake of Corfu, now drained.  Nowadays the valley has become an important wetland area with many canals filled with terrapins and bullfrogs. Through this area we take narrow tarmacked roads and unpaved tracks, zigzagging between the hills of Poulades, passing by the secluded lake of Kounoupina, a protected area with rare and protected flora and fauna. With one more hill to negotiate our days walk finishes back at the Aronda in Dassia

  • Walking Distance 15 km
  • Walking Time 5 hrs
  • Ascent 254m/Descent 415m
  • Transfer to Gianades 40 min

Day At Leisure

Perhaps have a leisurely breakfast and take advantage of a local excursion



The Unexplored South

Corfu welcomes many visitors of which most stay in the north of the island. The south is usually skipped, which is a missed chance as it shows a different Corfu; less busy and more laid back, here time has stood still. The south is less mountainous dotted with endless sandy beaches, dunes and traditional villages.

For todays walk we take our transfer to Cape Gardiki and from here we’ll set off for a long loop around the Lagoon of Korisson. The lagoon and the coast is a Natura 2000 protected area. The beach and sand dunes are covered with a forest of prickly juniper, reed beds and groves of tamarisk, white water lilies and many species of orchids. The lagoon is habitat to hundreds of endangered bird species, with the pink flamingos being the most striking. The first leg of the walk runs in between the sea and lake. A wooden plank-bridge crosses over a canal, which is actually the only (sea)water source of the huge lake. We’ll continue along Issos beach, once a film location for James Bonds’ For your Eyes Only.

The Heart Of The Island

For our last hike we’ll take our bus to the village of Troumpeta, at the foot of the mighty Pantokratoras. If the sky is clear we’ll enjoy captivating views over the entire east-coast. A sloping path leads us to Sokraki, this traditional village is rarely visited and off the beaten track. It’s a great spot to wonder around the cobbled, narrow streets and admire the old stone houses. Our path continues, through dense forests, along a narrow valley to the lake of Katapino. A short, but challenging, descent brings us to the next forgotten village, the beautiful Venetian houses and ruins of Agios Markos, protected as a cultural heritage site.
From here our route takes us along an old donkey trail meandering through a narrow valley, towards the coast. The path continues to wind further down where holm oaks thrive signalling, we’re getting closer to shore and the end of the hike. At the beach of Ipsos, we can celebrate and toast the end of our hiking adventure on this beautiful island with a cool well deserved drink.

  • Walking Distance 13 km
  • Walking Time 5 hrs
  • Ascent 371m / Descent 686m
