Guidebook describing 25 day walks on the Mediterranean island of Corsica. The graded routes, which cover both the coast and the mountainous inland, showcase Corsica's beautiful landscapes, visiting cliffs, inlets, forests, river gorges, waterfalls, maquis shrubland, peaks and historic sites. With information about history, plants and wildlife.


Coastal routes suitable for year-round walking, with April-June best for wildflowers. Due to snow, inland mountain routes are suitable for walking between late June and September.


Macinaggio and St-Florent on Cap Corse in the far north; Calvi, Porto and Piana along the northwest coast; Col de Vergio and Corte in the mountainous centre; Ajaccio and Porto Pollo on the southwest coast; Quenza and Zonza in the south; and Bonifacio in the far south.


Walks are graded for difficulty and range from: 1 - easy going on mostly level ground; 2 - average difficulty, with some ups and downs; 3 - for experienced walkers as can be challenging with rocky terrain and occasional exposure.
