There are many footpaths that have been created to start from the sea and head to the mountains 'Mare é Monti' or those that travel coast to coast 'Mare é Mare'. The main walking season is between mid-May and early July and in September.
Much of Corsica's forests, featuring a whole host of fauna and flora, mountainous hinterland and wild coast are made more accessible courtesy of waymarked trails, maintained by the Parc Regional and local municipalities. Some trails only take an hour, while others take several days, in which case you can enjoy well deserved rests at refuges or gites d'etapes, which offer comfortable dormitory accommodation exclusively to walkers.
In partnership with Corsican walking specialists, we are pleased to introduce walking holidays into our programme. Below are examples of the self-guided and guided itineraries available which encompass some of the best walking on the island, these can be packaged with our accommodation and flights.
