Planning a tour


















Corsica is a mountain in the Sea. There are four classic walks in Corsica that snake around the foot of the massifs and lead through forests and villages offering breath-taking views over the mountain tops and out to sea. In all of them you will pass through a series of villages as well as the stunning landscapes that are a joy to discover .

The Mare a Mare South is a distinct favorite. The lightest walk of all.

Starting from the gulf of Porto Vecchio on the East coast, the trail rises up through the mountains of the Alta Rocca region to arrive in Propriano on the West coast. This holiday would appeal to anyone that is used to walking regularly and is in good shape. With five days of easy to moderate walking you will discover the richness of the extreme south.
