The French Mediterranean island of Corsica has an untamed and magnificent mountainous interior and incredible dramatic seascapes. Immerse yourself in this rugged scenery and walk all the way to the exceedingly picturesque west coast through river gorges, past natural pools, lakes and to the Calanches de Piana, one of Corsica's scenic highlights. Even though this island has been part of France for over two hundred years, it has its own unique qualities; cuisine, language, culture and history, which only serve to make it more appealing. Following trails through these contrasting landscapes really allows an exploration like no other and when walking you will be able to see the island in all its glory first-hand.
