I can just recommend everyone to visit this place but take a picknick with you and stay there for some time to listen to the sound of nature. And when you leave dont forget to take your garbage with you.

Be prepared for a tense drive of 16km on a narrow road. The climb is heavy and suitable only for fit people. Good shoes required, Be prepared for changing weather & lower temperature. With these in mind, beautiful trip !

Call me a wimp, but the drive up the Restonica valley road terrified me - single track, sheer drops with no barriers in places, and lots of traffic going both ways. The views are stunning, but for me it was far more relaxing walking up...More

I would prefer to call this a vallée (valley) instead of a gorge (canyon) because it is not narrow and quite wide. The landscape is beautiful and it smells of pine trees (the real deal, not air refresher you see in taxis). The river has...More

Well not climbing per se, but seriously large boulder hopping. Most of the walk up to the lakes is walking over and through boulders between 50cm and 1m in size. And it's all uphill, some parts easy, some parts really steep. There are a few...More

Drive up slowly using the passing places as the road is single track for a lot of the route up. Pay €6 and park where you are told, this stops the road getting clogged up at the top! We walked up the hill and found...More

I would say that all of the interior of Corsica could be described as 'must see' but this is just one example of some of the amazing scenery. We didn't take the train but if you do then you can both sit back & enjoy...More

I had seen reviews saying the drive killed the enjoyment of the gorges and I have to agree. We did 3 different river swimming in Corsica and the drive was so nerve-wrecking compared to the other 2 that I don't think it's worth it. The...More
