Choosing the level of your walks

Our easy grading system shows whether a region offer gentle strolls or more challenging routes to help you choose the right holiday for you. Difficulty is measured on many factors such as distance, ascent/descent, terrain, weather and more. There's no magic formula, but from our experience we grade our walks 1 to 5 (where 1 is easy and 5 hard). Our challenger holidays require a high level of fitness and stamina.

Itinerary

 

Day 1: Arrive in Bastia

Pick up at Bastia airport, welcome by your France Outdoors leader at the arrival time of group flight, and transfer to the hotel. Bastia is the capital of Haute Corse area. It lies on the north-eastern coast of Corsica and was the capital of Corsica until 1791 and still is military headquarters of the island. It is an authentic snapshot of modern-day Corsica, a lived-in city. The old town (Terra Vecchia) is built in and around the central part of the harbour. The upper town (Terra Nuova) lies to the south, the modern town to the north and west. The old town is a network of alleys connected by dark, vaulted passages.

Day 2: Cap Corse, Macinaggio

Cap Corse which is a spiny peninsula that stands out from the rest of Corsica about 40km long and 10 km wide. Today you will join Macinaggio, discovering the beautiful North East coast. From the village you will walk the excisemen’s path (Sentier des douaniers) which follows the coast and where historically customs officers were watched out for smugglers.

Day 3: Transfer to Ile Rousse – Saleccia Park
