Who ever set a foot to the mountains and nature of Northern Corfu knows about the unique atmosphere and scenery of especially this part of the island. Not without reason, it caught young Gerald Durrell – and made him spend all his life on the wildlife. As a zoologists and as an author.

We now traced back one of the trails Gerald most probably had taken when visiting his brother in Kalami. And we couldn’t be more happy to take you as our guests for a walk like Durrell. The walk will end like all the activities of the Durrells ended those days: With some nice food at The White House restaurant. Some meze, some wine, some local sweets.

The trail is easy to walk and suitable for everyone – flora and fauna lovers, beginners, professionals. We offer packages for small private groups and large groups. All tours will be led by an English speaking tourguide. Please contact us for dates and prices.

Individuals who want to walk the trail alone, can buy a map at the gift shop.
