A veritable mountain in the sea, Corsica is the most geographically diverse of the Mediterranean Islands. It offers such a variety of landscapes from snow topped mountain peaks to fine sandy beaches. Age old paths link the high mountain plains with their shepherd huts through to the picturesque Mediterranean Coast. This itinerary starts in the central valley and includes some time on the Grand Randonnee 20 (GR20), the challenging long distance route running most of the length of Corsica. On foot you'll discover the scented pine tree forests and the lively village of Evisa. Explore the deep Spelunca Gorge and the exceptional Gulf of Porto with its unique jumble of rose granite pinnacles including the famous Calanques of Piana.
