Cradle Mountain & the Walls of Jerusalem

My 16 year old son and I have just finished the Cradle Mountains & Walls of Jerusalem walk and, while driving home, we were reflecting on why it was so rewarding and so much fun.

We expected spectacular scenery and plant life, and they were spectacular. We expected challenging terrain and weather, and they were challenging. We didn't expect such exceptional guides and that is why I am writing to you.

Tim is obviously a very experienced, capable and knowlegeable guide and I probably can't tell you anything you don't already know about him. He is a thorough professional. We always felt safe but challenged. I was impressed with his efforts in finding us interesting things to see and do in the Walls when the weather didn't allow us to visit the usual places. I also thought he handled the stop-over in Mole Creek due to flooding with a good combination of leadership and humour and it turned out to be a trip highlight!

So, the thing is, the environment we visited was every bit as spectacular, challenging and rewar ding as we had hoped for. What made this holiday exceptional was your wonderful guides.My son and I have thanked them, but we wanted to let you know as well.

Corsica

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.

Utracks Europe offers a range of guided and self-guided tours to help you cycle, walk and trek your way through Corsica on a small group adventure holiday.

The Weather in Corsica

Corsica experiences the classic Mediterranean climate.  Autumn and Spring coastal temperatures range between 15-20 ºC.  June to September (Summer) the coastal temperatures range from 20-27 ºC, although they can rise as high as the late 30’s. 

At higher elevations during the summer months,  the temperatures drop sharply and there may be snow on the highest peaks (generally only to June).
Being a largely mountainous island, the weather can change
rapidly and you should be prepared for some extremes of
temperatures at higher elevations even in summer. The risk of
thunderstorm starts from September onwards. During the rainy
season from October to April, one day in three is generally wet.
