Adventure activities in Corfu

Corfu may have a reputation as one of the quieter and more laid-back Greek Islands, but it's also a great base for any outdoor activities, thanks to its diverse landscapes and watersport-laden coastlines.

If you're a nature nut who loves getting some fresh air in your lungs and a sweat on your brow, Corfu is definitely for you.

It's the greenest of the Greek Islands and shares the same warm climate as its Italian neighbour, making it an ideal setting for all those adventurous outdoor shenanigans. So strap on those boots, grab that water bottle and see what exciting sites and attractions Corfu has to offer.

Speedboat tours

If you're travelling with a large group of friends or family members, speedboat tours are an exciting way to catch the island at its best.

There's no better way to explore Corfu's Blue Lagoon than by taking a thrilling day tour on the seas.

Crazy Speedboat is one company that takes adventurers on a 75 miles per hour trip, stopping at a private beach for champagne and relaxation on the sand. You'll even have the opportunity to do a little snorkelling and check out Corfu's sea creatures.

Mountain biking

Ride through small villages, historic streets, and the gorgeous Corfu countryside on a mountain bike excursion. You can discover why they call it the 'Emerald Isle' by journeying through some of the most gorgeous backdrops the Greek Islands have to offer.

There are plenty of spots around the island where you can rent a bike, and some will even take you on guided tours, stopping along the way at quaint village pubs for tapas and drinks.

Horseback riding

Horseback riding in Corfu has become a time-honoured tradition, and is a fantastic way to take in some of the island's stunning sights.

Professional riders will lead you on a tour through woods, meadows, villages and olive groves, letting you fully immerse yourself into the views of Corfu's mountains and expansive coastlines. Whether you're an avid rider or this is your very first time on a horse, there are trails available for a range of experience levels.

Scuba diving

The water around Corfu is perfectly clear and makes an ideal spot for scuba diving enthusiasts. Dive centres are available all around the island and teach about health and safety before guiding you through your one-of-a-kind scuba diving experience.

There's much to explore underwater in Corfu, from coral reefs to caves with open roofs to bright and colorful fish and even a few octopi.

Corfu is also home to several shipwrecks that you can scuba dive around including a World War II steamship and the British minesweeper HMS Regulas that was sunk by a mine in 1945.

Fun 4x4 tours

Experience some off-roading with a four wheel drive across the island. These private tours give you an up close and personal adventure of Corfu, taking you on unseen scenic routes and over rocky terrain regular cars couldn't withstand.

Instead of the average bus tour, stopping and letting people on and off along the way, four wheel drive tours take you exactly where you want to go, and the private aspect means you can even make a pit-stop for drinks.


Watersport enthusiasts get ready, Corfu's world-renowned beaches are the ideal stomping ground for a little sand and surf. Corfu has everything covered in the watersports department, with a massive range of activities to check out.

Learn how to waterski, wakeboard, paraglide, kite surf, and even jetski. All around the island you'll find watersport equipment rentals as well as facilities that will teach you how to have fun and stay safe out on the water.

For a more laid-back approach in the ocean hire a banana boat or rent inflatable towables.
