Description

Between the Mediterranean and Tyrrhenian seas, the mountains of Corsica boast a huge variety of atmospheres and landscapes. This track I propose offers the advantage of “tasting” this richness. We will go through all stages of vegetation. Indeed, from the high peaks (alpine and minerals) to the sea of the Gulf of Porto (UNESCO heritage site).

This hike will allow you to discover mountain villages, rivers with water of high purity (bathing almost daily!), altitude lakes, sheepfolds, the GR 20, chestnut trees, old Genoese bridges, Mediterranean maquis… Enough to leave with a multitude of memories and scents.

I will help you discover these spaces with passion. Of course I will help you in difficult passages for you to reach the wildest parts of the island.

The following are some highlights of this beautiful hike:
– Contrast Sea/Mountain
– Swimming in torrents
– A State Certified Mountain Guide
– The discovery of local products for picnics
– The possibility of lodging in room

Does this trip sound tempting? Then please contact me! Me or one of my colleagues will be happy to guide you through these beautiful Corsican paths, between mountain and sea. I also offer many other hiking trips in Corsica. For example, Hiking along the Mare e Monti south or  Hiking the southern part of the GR 20.
