Description

Do you want to enjoy a different type of vacation with your family? A vacation full of adventures and new places to discover? Join me on this journey to explore the Gulf of Porto. Discover one of the most beautiful parts of Corsica on this week long trip.

This is one of my favorite trips because it has so many different fun and safe activities for people all ages, so even children can enjoy it. But it still has many thrilling parts, for those more adventurous folks.

Over a week of exploration, we’ll trek across mesmerizing coastal walks and discover many secret spots of the Gulf of Porto. One of the places I will guide you to is the Calanches de Piana. This marvelous place is formed with calanques, steep-walled and narrow inlets, that act like wonderful windows to the ocean.

We’ll also have many other water adventures! For instance, we’ll soak in an amazing swimming torrents. Additionally, we will venture through calm waters on a kayak in search of turtles. Moreover, we will visit the Scandola reserve on a boat. And, we’ll have an incredibly fun treasure hunt in a remote and isolated fishing village, that has no road access. So we can all feel like adventurers back in the day exploring new lands!

As for our accommodation, I also have many great proposals. For example, we will stay at Régine, an old oil mill that was renovated and turned into a charming cottage, with all the amenities of a nice hotel. We’ll also stay at gites, fully furnished and equipped holiday homes. That way, you can experience the real Corsican lifestyle.

So gather your family and get ready for an unforgettable adventure! Send me a request and join me on this week journey through Corsica!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
