1. Climb Mt. Pantokrator
Over 1000m in height and towering of the north-east of Corfu is Mount Pantokrator.
You can drive but a better option is to climb to the top; you can walk along the road or the inlaid footpaths. The view from the top is breathtaking, encompassing the sea and spread of Greece’s west coast as well as a monastery and the villages dotted below.
2. Mountain-biking the Corfu trail
An intensive undertaking for the hardcore cyclists amongst you – and extra special if you’re planning on biking the Santiago de Compostela or similar long mountainous and coastal routes in Europe – the 220km that make up the Corfu trail take in some incredibly diverse landscapes and testing terrain.
It’s something you can do as part of a package with adventure tours operators, or select an area you are interested in and organize yourself. As an island popular ith adventure activity, hiring quality mountain bikes is not a problem.
3. Swim, walk, explore Korission Lake.
Less a lake and more a lagoon, Korission Lake is practically a stone’s throw from the Ionian Sea, yet its stunning dunes and surrounding nature reserve make it the ideal spot to finish a big Corfu adventure. From sandsledging to swimming and running to bird watching, you need at least a day here to take it in and get active.
