Highs & Lows

A pink sunrise that looked like a dream and sea of clouds on top of the mountains. The saucisson and the cheese are a must.

The weather was a but unpredictable, it's normal in the mountains. You can pack accordingly.

Itinerary Overview

We arrive in Calenzana. The excitement rises when we see the sign marking the departure. What exactly is waiting for us? 

We crossed Corsica from north to south on a difficult but worthwhile route. 

7 days of walking in breathtaking landscapes, starting in Calenzana, a nice village near Calvi. During the walk we were passing through other mountain villages such as Pietra Piana, Vizzavona. After it all, we spent a well deserved weekend in the beautiful town of Bonifacio after the end of the walk at Conca. There, we visited the "vieille ville" with our tired feet, enjoyed drinks at the port and ate in good restaurants.
