This ski touring Haute Route Corsica traverse goes across the island south to north. This 7-day route is known for its wilderness and technical difficulty. Join me as we discover this legendary hike and share my passion for “beauty island” with you.
This tour is the most pleasant way to complete the famous Corsican Haute Route, in Alta Strada. And this particular route follows variations which give priority to an enjoyable descent.
To begin this program, I will meet you in Ajaccio. After that, the adventure begins! Some of the highlights of this program include:
- The ascent of Monte Renoso (2,357 m) – the highest peak in southern Corsica
- A traverse to Punta di l’Oriente (2,112 m) to appreciate the spectacular view of the coast to the east and the west
- Beautiful beech forests
- A sealskins progression in the Agnone valley, at the foot of the majestic Monte d’Oro
- Reaching the Bocca á e Porte (2,225 m) with the use of crampons
- Crossing the Camputile plateau before our ascent of Punta Artica (2,327 m)
Have a look at the detailed day-by-day itinerary below.
This program includes some technical section which require storing the skies in the bag, and the use of crampons. To go on this guided trip, guests need to be autonomous mountaineers, have a good physical condition, a taste for effort, and ability to be at ease in uncomfortable situations.
