This is a very relaxed bicycle expedition around one of the greenest of the Greek islands through pretty seaside villages and traditional inland hamlets. The rather sleepy ambiance of Corfu all adds to the charm along with old Corfu town itself - a World Heritage listed centre. This gentle journey allows you plenty of time to visit other islands and splash about in your hotels' swimming pools to your heart's content. Jolly by name, jolly by nature!
