Corsica is the most mountainous island in Europe and has over 1000 kilometres of beautiful Mediterranean coast, 200 beaches and over a third of its land mass devoted to nature reserves. With a warm and sunny climate and large network of walking trails, it’s an ideal holiday destination for the keen trekker.

There are several long distance trails in Corsica, the most famous of which is the GR20. Reputedly the toughest trek in Europe, the 180 kilometre long trail traverses the island north to south and takes around 13 days to complete – a most satisfying challenge! Some of the best places for hiking are around Corte in the centre of the island. Surrounded by mountains, this historic and vibrant university town makes a great base for striking out on day walks to explore craggy and inspiring landscapes such as the Gorge du Tavignano, Arch of Corte and the nearby traditional villages.

As well as the magnificent walking, Corsica also has other attractions. Although part of France, the island is culturally distinct and has its own language (although French is widely spoken), independent spirit and an interesting history. Its renowned regional cuisine makes full use of the plentiful local produce such as wild boar, seafood, delicatessen and cheese products, which you can enjoy tucking into after a hard day on the trails.

All in all, a walking holiday in Corsica makes for some adventurous hiking and chance to sample a unique slice of Mediterranean life.
