Self-Guided Holidays and Small Group Adventures Europe: Corsica
Corsica is in the Tyrrhenian Sea in the western Mediterranean, 160 kilometres south-west of the French Riviera and 82kms west of the coast of Tuscany, on the same latitude as Rome. Often known as the Mountain in the Sea, the highest point is Monte Cintu at 2,710 metres, and there are twenty other mountains of over two thousand metres and an average altitude of 560m. The old mule tracks winding through the inland mountains, coupled with the idyllic coastline, provide an ideal route for a walking holiday of Corsica. With floral diversity (with some 2,980 different plant species), a rich history, charming villages and an ideal climate, it also has the right ingredients for a superb cycling adventure holiday.
