Walking the Corfu trail North vacation

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.

Environment

On this trip we follow the northern section of Corfu's long-distance walking route, traveling on foot between villages. Established in 2001, the 200 kilometre long Corfu Trail snakes around the Greek island. Starting at Liapades Beach, over seven days the group will walk along the coastline and across the Karst Plateau to Agios Spyridon,the most northerly point of the island. This slower pace of traveling enables us to really appreciate the beauty of Corfu, along the way learning about the history, traditional culture, flora and fauna of the country. Walking is a carbon neutral way to travel.

The Corfu Trail is ran by a local non-for-profit trust and we include the trail fee for use of the trail as part of our package. This is re invested into maintenance and improvements to infrastructure. Our Tour Leader and local guides are keen to protect their island, actively promoting responsible tourism and ensuring that all waste is carried off the trail and litter pick along the way.

The tap water is safe to drink and we encourage travelers to take a reusable water bottle to fill up throughout the day, rather than adding to the number of plastic bottles used and to be carried.

As a travel company we are continually looking for ways to improve and are proud to be ‘Responsible in everything we do’. Education is key, and so all staff, Tour Leaders and partnering suppliers are trained in responsible and sustainable tourism. At our Head Office, we continually strive towards a sustainable and planet-friendly working environment, including having solar panels installed and a company commitment to reducing our plastic usage.

Community

We visit small ancient villages and stay in a mixture of accommodation, including family ran tavernas. These are typical Greek restaurants, often with rooms attached which are an integral part of the culture and help to retain the traditions of the island. Staying and eating in tavernas gives the group a great insight into local life, enjoying some delicious authentic food often accompanied by live music in the evenings.

Running this trip from April to October brings income to these villages, supporting small local guesthouses, shops and markets throughout the year, not just in the summer months.

As a company we have valuable and longstanding partnerships with UK charities Toilet Twinning and Send a Cow, plus many smaller initiatives and projects around the world. We’re members of the UK travel industry body AITO because we believe it’s important to share our knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other operators.
