Sherpa Everest

The Sherpa Everest trip that I was on was just excellent. The Aussies , the leaders, cook, sherpas and porters were the best. I just wish we could have had one more beautiful day in Namche so we could have gone to the Everest Hotel. One of the days we walked through 7-8 inches of snow and unfortunately we did not see the mountains. That was a day to remember. The next day it was unbelievably clear in Namche but we had to start our return towards Lukla. All in all, it was great trip.

I was amazed how well I did on the Sherpa Everest trip and I believe the Aussies and the leader were amazed too. I believe it was the way the sherpas lead us up the hills. A nice slow and steady pace along with staying in Namche for two days. Keep up the good work.

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.
