Hiking in Corsica

Discover Corsica, the island of Beauty.

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.

6-day trek GR20 south route Bavella to Vizzavona

I applied for an english speaking group. At least thats what i thought so it was a great surprise when i found myself as the only one in a french speaking group who did not understand a word whats going on. I bought a package, for my limited nimber of vacation days, where i wanted to enjoy myself, part of the package should be networking with other people in the group. Otherwise i would have gone into the Alps hiking myself, that is where i live. Also my dietary requirement was ignored. As a vegan i had a hard time trying to find dishes i can eat without ending up in a medical condition. Also it would have been nice to get a detailed description about the accomodations. It was a great surprise finding out i have to pay 40 euros extra to have a standard european level accomodation. Fortunately the guide managed to turn this initially very negative experience into a better one.

Wild and adventurous hikes in Corsica, France, with a local guide

Travelling through the Corsican mountains with Xavier and Hendrix, his four legged friend, was a trip we will never forget. Xavier is a brilliant guide, easy to spend time and very knowledgable, we immediately felt relaxed in his company.  We worked hard, saw beautiful and remote spots, swam in rivers and enjoyed the delicious local, organic food and wine that Xavier kindly carried along for our journey. It was a unique experience and we really enjoyed sharing it with both Xavier and Hendrix. We are always thinking of when we can next go back!


There are many reasons for choosing Hiking in France

Corsica has maintained its natural heritage away from the hand of man. Part of its conservation is due to its isolation, since it is accessible mainly by sea. In fact, it has a fabulous seabed with a great biodiversity. Here you will also find numerous animal and plant species, such as cormorants, wild goats, shearwaters, algae and corals.
