The Arillas Trail sign-posted foot-path into the Corfiot nature

The Arillas Trail

Arillas TrailDuring winter time, the Arillas Cultural Organization in cooperation with other residents and the Business Organization, have made efforts to create a foot path between the two main roads of our Area, as well as a walking trail that starts at the beach between Thallasa Restaurant and Kostas on the beach Taverna along the Arillas Stream, up to the bridge after the bakery and then all the way to the olive-groves of the Agricultural area of our village.

 

It leads in to areas that have not been easily accessed by visitors until today as there have not been any signs of orientation. Walking through this trail you will be able to observe Arillas from a different point of view in a fantastic environment of plants and trees where time has stopped many years ago.
The roads that you will see are created mainly in order to access everyone’s harvest for transporting it to the local olive press.
There are no buildings but the only signs of modern civilization are the nets that are used to collect the olives.
The trail ends at the Corfu Microbrewery where you can stop for a free beer sample and guided tour inside or keep going till the beach again.
This project will not be the only one. We have future plans for creating a whole network of such signed paths where you will be able to walk under the shade of our over 400 years old olivetrees even until Sidari. The Journey is about 8,5 Km and it should take about 2 hours.

 

It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to use GOOD WALKING SHOES as well as to TAKE MUCH WATER with you.

 

DO NOT FORGET your camera.
The walk is free for everyone.
Anyone using this walk does so at their own risk!

Just follow the red and white signs as above and enjoy.
