Corfu, island of the Phaeacians

An 8-day educational and hiking tour. The sickle-shaped island lies near the continental coast of Epirus, from which it is separated by the Sea of Corfu. Wide and mountainous is its northern part, narrow and hilly the southern. Olive trees and cypresses characterize the landscape. Spared by the earthquakes that destroyed the other Ionian Islands, Corfu conserves its beautiful old villages and the mediaeval town. Endless nature offers the ideal conditions for many hikes.

Corfu: Through olive woods and traditional villages

An 8 day bicycle tour on Corfu, an island near the coast of Epirus on the NW part of Greece, separated from the continental coast by the Sea of Corfu. Wide and mountainous is the northern part, narrow and hilly the southern. Olive trees and cypresses characterize the landscape. As Scheria, homeland of the legendary Phaeacians, the island was introduced by Homer in the world literature: There, the adventures of Odysseus were finished. The shipwrecked was saved from Poseidon’s anger and the elements of nature in a sheltered creek, where a princess took care of him. His hosts organized finally his return trip to Ithaca.
