More Info

Corsica combines stunning views of mountain, sky and sea with a unique culture in the Mediterranean. Home to Napoleon Bonaparte as well as numerous remote citadels sprinkled around the countryside, Corsica is full of interesting sights. The GR20 is by far the most popular trek in the country. It takes you diagonally across the island and provides you with a great taste of everything Corsica has to offer. The Alta Roca trek takes you across the southern portion of the island and along both the Cuscionu plateau and the Aiguilles de Bavella. The Mare e Monti follows the southwestern coast along the Ajaccio Bay and the Propriano Gulf.

The trip was great! Fabrice was a wonderful guide and I’m contemplating further trips with him and explore share.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our hike to Mercantour National Park. Fabrice was entertaining and knowledgeable, and helpful. He arranged for our pickup from our hotel at Nice, and even drove us to a village bakery to pack a Provençal sandwich for our picnic at the top of the mountains.

Fabrice shared with us a lot of information about the place’s landscape, flora and fauna. And he also showed us how to spot the wildlife and take pictures of the animals. We learnt that he’s also an avid photographer and has extensive experience in nature photography.

The highlight of our trip was reaching the crystal clear mountain lake, close to the top of the mountain range, where we also got to cross the border from France into Italy for our picnic. The only regret we have is not being able to spend more time in the park, as the hike took most of the day. We will definitely be interested in doing this again!

Thanks for the arrangement!

I can’t recommend Raphy highly enough. Good company and the magic ability to know who needs help and who needs to just get on with it themselves. Great choice of hikes with stupendous scenery.

Our excursion with Fabrice was one of the highlights of our trip to France. He was extremely knowledgable about the area and the local history. He even went out of his way to take us to see some local orchids that were in bloom when he learned that we love orchids! We will definitely take another trip with him the next time we find ourselves in the area.

The hike was absolutely wonderful. Anja was a great guide who kept sharing lots of information about the region while we were hiking. She was kind enough to accommodate our food restrictions and brought us wonderful homemade lunches and snacks every day. She ensured our hike was full of different grades of difficulty so we never got bored and learnt a lot. It was an amazing experience and we would definitely recommend Anja to everyone!!!

I booked a tour with Fabrice on late May, definitely the highlight of my holiday, we went on a hike around Casterino It was a relaxed hike with great sights of mountain forests and lakes, I got to see some of the local fauna and flora of the park, ibex, marmots, chamois, although not as much as they would be in the area, possibly because of the wolfs (we saw some footprints). Overall it is a great way to see the surroundings. I would definitely recommend Fabrice as a guide for your next hike!
