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

We arrived at our hotel (la Refuge de la Restonica), dropped our bags and started driving to the end of the Gorges de la Restonica and a hiking trip to a small lake. Well, the road leading there was the toughest we encountered in Corsica!...More

The views from the top of these mountains is magnificent and worth the narrow winding roads to get to the top. The island is a little barren with landscape similar to parts of Northern California, USA and ideal for wine growing.
