When visiting our beloved island, there are plenty of exciting activities to do in Corfu. Our home is a blend between old aristocratic charm that oozes from every corner of the city of Old Corfu, and phenomenal, verdant cliffs that topple down to azure shores. There is something for everyone in Corfu, regardless of what type of traveller you are, or what what was it that brought you to Corfu for your holiday. Some might want to discover the timeless aristocratic allure that is aplenty even through a simple stroll around the old town. For inspiration about Corfu town sauntering, here are all the top things to see and do in Corfu town. Others may want to spend their entire holiday just chilling at a luxury Corfu beach resort, choosing total relaxation over any excursions or activities, and that is totally acceptable too. But for those who seek to connect with nature, admire and celebrate local life and local experiences, all the while exploring all the natural beauties through leisurely or energizing activities to do in Corfu, then this post is for you.

Leisurely activities to do in Corfu
Leisurely activities to do in Corfu include those that require little effort or energy on your part. They are more suited to those who prefer to enjoy their surroundings at a slow pace, with plenty of moments to pause and really absorb the feels of their environment. Luckily, the island’s terrain has a whole whole range of leisurely activities to do in Corfu. Let’s begin with one few people know is an actual ‘thing’ to do while in Corfu. Plane spotting is a lovely pastime at the area of Kanoni, which is found just at the end of the airport’s runway strip. It is a lovely seaside district, with the famous and frequently photographed Vlacherna Monastery as a main attraction. Most plan traffic occurs during the morning until noon, then from sunset onwards and into the evening while the best time to plane spot is around dusk, when the colours of the sky go create a clouded, cotton candy canvas.
Next up is horse riding in Corfu. Being in contact with noble creatures such as horses makes horse riding soothing, calming and fulfilling. Equine therapy, although practiced is gradually receiving international acclaim for its mental and neurological benefits while even a simple stroll along one of Corfu’s beaches on horseback will satiate your soul, amplifying a feeling of inner peace. Check Arena Horse Riding Corfu and Silvaland Corfu for the available horse riding centers that arrange rides around our island. For Golf enthusiasts, our island would not remiss in providing you with suitable terrains for putting a hole in one, if you have the skills. The Corfu Golf Club is located in the region of Ermones, Ropa Valley which is about 15 km (20 minutes) from Corfu town. Finally, visiting the olive orchards of Corfu will introduce you to the Greek liquid gold and the country’s backbone product which has received international praise about its fine quality. Try Corfu Olive Tours who will take you round to ancient groves with massive olive trees, letting you in on various tricks of the trade.

Energizing activities to do in Corfu
Energizing or more active activities to do in Corfu are for the ones who seek the thrill of engaging with surroundings. There are various activities to do in Corfu that can release different levels of adrenaline and/or flood you with an exciting sense of adventure, covering land, sea and air. Corfu island has a plethora of hillsides and cliffs that make the best playground for hiking and trekking lovers. Hiking routes in Corfu offer a range of trails for all levels. You can choose from over 20 hiking routes more detailed information about which you can find here. Remember to bring sensible shoes, water, wear sunblock and a hat during your hikes. For admiring the amazing Corfiot seabed, brimming with underwater treasures of the Ionian sea, try diving in Corfu. Of course scuba is not as simple as taking a hiking trail; ir requires some skill and experience for more technically challenging dives especially, so beginners need training as well as instructors by their side. Having said that, if you do decide to pursue it, apart from the thriving aquatic life that will surround you, you’ll be able to observe numerous underwater caves, old shipwrecks and a seabed of many impressive reefs.
And for those who get pleasure from pushing themselves to the limit, far beyond their comfort levels, then perhaps its paragliding that will make the cut. An unsurpassed sense of freedom is achieved as you soar 400 meters above ground level. As with diving, paragliding is an activity that requires a certain level of skill, so there will be an experienced instructor by your side to ensure your flight is safe. While paragliding is considered an extreme sport, there is nothing that can beat the phenomenal aerial visuals you will get to see, gliding through the air, that is if you can manage to keep your eyes open. But that is why the instructor is there, so that you can enjoy the thrill without worrying about the technicalities of a flight. Contact Corfu paragliding and learn more about it before you book it.
