The island of Corsica is an ideal place to enjoy a hiking experience through its ancient paths of shepherds and goats, combined with nearly 1500 km of marked trails, with lodges and huts, in the heart of the Regional Natural Park of Corsica, which occupies more than 50% of the island.
There are three great itineraries that join the two coasts and you can not miss if you are a real hiker: first, the spectacular GR20 route, which crosses high mountains, and is considered one of the most beautiful in Europe, but also the hardest. Second, the route Mare e Monti, which goes from Calenzana to Cargèse along spectacular landscapes and magnificent panoramic views of the sea. And finally, the Mare a Mare route that crosses Corsica from east to west.
Of course there are a wide variety of options for all levels and preferences. Discover them all in this selection of guided trips that we offer in Explore-Share.
