The understated beauty of this wild region captivates the visitor. The Island within the Island is a walker’s paradise, with so much that is typical of Corsica.

The trip starts on the west coast, in the busy harbour village of Macinaggio, exploring seaside villages including Centuri, along coastal paths and through remote Mediterranean wildernesses before heading south to the lively seaside town of Saint Florent. Off the beaten track, the Cap Corse is a real undiscovered gem, and now a marine national park, it enchants visitors with timeless landscapes and is sure to inspire you.
