Description

Join me for a beautiful hike with your friends and family to the Coscione Plateau. Located in the wonderful island of Corsica, France, this place is full of stunning landscapes and easy paths for all types of hikers.

I’ve planned an itinerary that will allow us to relish the incredible views the Plateau has to offer, including pastures, flowers and mountain peaks. We’ll even be able to bathe at washbasins and camp under the stars. You can check the itinerary below for more information. Keep in mind it may change depending on weather conditions and the group’s level.

This is an intermediate level hike and everybody is welcome. However, do make sure that you’ve trained a bit to endure 3 full days of hiking. Also, you will need to bring a 20-30 liter backpack, hiking boots, waterproof jacket and pants, hat, gloves and warm clothes, a jacket, personal hygiene and pharmacy equipment, sunscreen and lip balm, sunglasses and water. I can guide you on the preparation of your backpack if you wish. Be aware that the weather may change very fast in the mountains and you need to be prepared.

Are you ready for a fun hiking adventure in Corsica? Then gather your friends and family and get ready for a beautiful experience. Send your request today!

Furthermore, if you’re looking for more adventures in the area, you can also join me on a 3-day hike to Alta Rocca, Corsica or 5-day hike on the GR20 route.

About the guide

I am a mountain leader based in Quenza, Corsica. I am state-certified and offer hiking and snowshoeing tours around this beautiful island. And for your added safety, I'm also a firefighter and lifeguard. I enjoy the feeling of freedom I get when in the mountains and also the humbleness that they require. The mountain is wonderful when shared!
