Cycling holidays in Greece

Greece is hilly and mountainous and lacks nothing when it comes to historical interest, coastal charm and sun. It is a paradise for walkers but not for gentle cyclists. We have chosen the island of Corfu as the best area for gentle cycling in Greece and we are happy to design a tailor made tour for you.

Corfu is one of the greenest of the Greek islands – thanks to intermittent but torrential rains from September to May, and the thousands of olive trees that carpet the land­scape. It is also one of the more rural, sleepy islands away from the tourist honey spots. Inland and in certain coastal areas, life is almost of another era and Corfiot villagers still celebrate religious festivals with music and fairs. The old quarters of Corfu town are a World Heritage Site and there’s nothing quite like it between there and Dubrovnik.
