Corsica is a land of immense contrasts, beauty and character. Its lofty peaks, valleys worthy of legend, wild gulfs, sheltered inlets, placid beaches, cliffs sculpted by men and spindrift, hillsides cut for vine and olive —these are but a few of its distinctive features. On these attributes were built its reputation for friendliness on the perfect holiday island. The Corsica tour will take us around the island with a mix of coastal as well as mountain roads to discover the amazing views, towns and villages of the “Beauty Island”. You will journey from Bastia on the north east coast to Bonifacio at the south through Ajaccio, Napoleon’s home town, as well as through Porto, Corte, and Sartene, the most Corsican town. This tour will give you the opportunity to enjoy riding on swirling roads and to discover a place rich in history and great people and even experience the cows asleep on the road side and the pigs crossing it! Overnight towns: St Florent, Porto, Ajaccio, Sartene, Bonifaccio, Corte, Erbalunga
Day 1: the tour starts from the French Riviera on the ferry over the
Mediterranean sea, for a 4 hours cruise which will take us to Bastia. We will get to St Florent, our first stop, by riding around the Cap Corse. St. Florent, with its port and soft sand beach, is called the St. Tropez of Corsica.
Day 2: From St Florent we will ride along the Agriates desert
towards Porto. But before getting there we will have visited some
wonderful mountain roads, great views and natural pools. After an
exciting ride along the tiny, serpentine coastal roads we will discover Porto. Time for a good swim in the sea!
Day 3: For those interested it will be possible to take a boat ride to the wonderful Natural sanctuary of Scandola (belonging to the UNESCO patrimony since 1983) and the little town of Girolata. Then we will be back on the bikes and up into the mountains before getting back to the coast and Corsica’s main west coast town: Ajaccio, which offers great historical places to visit. Here, one can walk in the footsteps of Napoleon.
Day 4: After a ride on wonderful, corkscrewy roads, we will have a
break in Propriano before starting to leave the west coast to climb up to Sartène, known as the most Corsican town.
Day 5: This is a rest day with a short ride to the most southern town of Corsica: Bonifaccio. After leaving your equipment in the hotel you will be able to walk around, visit the beautiful town centre, and go for a boat ride to visit the caves, the “falaises” (where the movie “Guns of Navarone” was shot in the sixties).
Day 6: The long day ride! We will cross half of the length of the island, and ride up the mountains, across wonderful forests and some natural pools to relax before we get to Corte, our final town in Corsica for a good night’s rest after a visit of the town.
Day 7: An early wake-up to enjoy some more circuitous roads before
we get back to Bastia and take some time to visit that nice town. We will overnight at the Cap Corse southern part.
Day 8: Say farewell to Corsica before we get on the ferry back to the continent.
