With stunning coastlines and impressive craggy mountains, Corsica is an island with diverse landscapes for day walkers of all abilities to enjoy. Across 25 day walks, this guidebook explores sandy beaches, forested river valleys, and waterfalls, as well as high mountain passes to lookouts and glacial lakes. This guidebook is a brilliant introduction to walking on Corsica, and offers plenty of information on food, plant life, and history. Bases include coastal towns of Bastia, Bonifacio, Porto Vecchio, and Ajaccio, as well as mountain villages of Corte, Evisa and Zonza. Each walk features detailed mapping alongside comprehensive route description. All the walks are graded for difficulty and range from easy-going low-level walks on good tracks or paths, to challenging and exposed high-level routes for experienced walkers. The guidebook also includes lots of practical information including a list of useful contacts, accommodation listing, and a glossary of French/Corsican terms. Whether you choose a coastal stroll to enjoy wildflowers and a swim in the Mediterranean Sea, or a mountain walk with dizzying views across craggy peaks, this guidebook offers something for walkers of all abilities looking to discover the many delights of Corsica.
