Walking in Corsica
Long-distance and short walks
This guidebook gives details of 3 long-distance walking routes in Corsica - Mare e Monti, Mare-Mare Nord and Mare-Mare Sud - which cross the island, and also describes 18 day-walks in prime spots both in the rugged mountains of the interior and the softer southern coastal fringe. Good local information.
SeasonsAny time of year for the coastal routes, but avoid July and August - too hot and very busy! March to May is best for flowers; May to September best for the mountains.
CentresCalvi, Cargese, Calenzana, Moriani, Corte, Porto-Vecchio, Propriano, Ajaccio and Bonifacio.
DifficultyMainly fairly easy to moderate walking, with two shorter walks of a more challenging nature.
Must SeeViews of the Aiguilles de Bavella, ancient bridges and villages, mountain and coastal scenery to take your breath away.
