Cycling Corsica

8 Days 538 KmAVG 89 Km

This awe-inspiring road cycling journey takes you through the heart of undiscovered Corsica or ‘L’île de Beauté’, riding part of the route of the 100th Tour de France.

Corsica is something of a Nirvana for cyclists: there are glorious roads winding through remote villages down to glittering, turquoise coves; challenging climbs and sweeping descents on good tarmac with few cars; medieval towns untouched by the 20th century; chestnut groves, pine forests and granite canyons; limestone mountains and golden, sandy beaches dotted along a staggeringly lovely coastline. Add in the fine weather and excellent local food, and it’s hard to think of another destination that packs so much into such a small, beautiful space.

Officially part of France for nearly 250 years, Corsica remains fiercely independent and unique in many ways; if anything, there is a greater affinity with Italy, through food and the local language. And though tourism is now a major part of the economy, Corsica feels delightfully unspoilt, particularly out of the high season.

This cracking, circular route takes in the finest roads in the northern part of the island, Corsica’s secret. The itinerary combines superb coastal riding – round Cap Corse and down the west coast, through the famous Calanches rocks – with excursions into the granite gorges and the mountainous backbone in the centre of the island.
