Walking Holidays in Corsica
Small but enchanting, the island of Corsica is an idyllic setting for those in search of a rewarding hiking holiday. From sun-kissed beaches to beautiful soaring peaks, this picture-perfect island offers both challenging hiking terrain or sedate coastal strolls, each revealing extensive history, culture, and charm. Visit Corsica on a walking holiday, and discover a destination that epitomises everything great about life in the Mediterranean.
Challenging natural terrain
Rugged cliffs and rocky shorelines are just part of the splendour of Corsica; the inland areas features plunging gorges, thick pine forests, and spectacular waterfalls. Mountain hikes prove a thrilling experience, with the number of quaint towns and villages to be discovered en route offering superb views over both the country and the Mediterranean. In addition, embarking on a walking holiday through Corsica provides the opportunity to explore glorious sandy beaches and the crystal clear waters of the ocean, savouring the relaxed pace of life that is so common to the inhabitants of this beautiful island.
While the natural scenery of Corsica will leave visitors enchanted, the delightful cities, towns, and villages offer culture and history in abundance. Taking a stroll around the island’s capital, Ajaccio, unveils palm-lined boulevards, an old town of narrow streets, and a marina. The town is perhaps best known as the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte, whose legacy can be seen in the many monuments dedicated to his memory. Lively and charismatic, Bastia offers something completely different, meanwhile, with its thriving trade and commerce. A number of historic sites of this former Roman city make a walking holiday in Corsica a truly unforgettable experience.
