Program

Day 1: Arrival in Corsica (30 to 120 kilometers / 19 to 75 miles)

You will arrive at Bastia – Poretta Airport (BIA) where the team will collect you and take you to their offices to get kitted out with your hired bike. Depending upon your arrival time, there will be various options on offer. You can take the road directly to your hotel and make the most of the swimming pool, beach, and the Michelin-starred restaurant. You can also discover the wild and little known Nebbiu region on superb little roads before reaching your hotel in the resort of Saint Florent.

Day 2: The tour of the Cape of Corsica (approximately 135 kilometers / 84 miles)

The Cape of Corsica is unmissable. After a good breakfast, you will return to the east coast to start your tour of the cape. The undulating road along the east coast will offer some stunning views across the Italian islands of Elba and Capraia. After crossing the remote end of the cape, the team will suggest for you stop for lunch at the tiny little fishing port of Centuri, famous for its fresh lobster.

From there, the west coast will become increasingly wild with breathtaking views. It will be possible to take a rest by many small creeks and a stop will be imperative in the village of Nonza where you can enjoy the views from one of the most spectacularly placed bars in Corsica. You will return to your hotel where you can enjoy your last night in northern Corsica.

Day 3: The Desert des Agriates and the Balagne region to Calvi (approximately 125 kilometers / 78 miles)

The day will begin after a superb crossing of the "Désert des Agriates," a protected area that offers a winding road with stunning views down the to coast. Local bikers consider the road to be one of the best in all of Corsica. On leaving the Agriates, you will avoid the main road by taking some little-known mountain back roads, crossing olive groves lined with cactus and prickly pears.

You will pass through some villages typical of the region where you will need to pay attention to the cows that wander freely! You will then reach Calvi, the bustling port town that comes alive each evening with its bars and restaurants.

Day 4: Calvi to the heart of Corsica, Corte (approximately 150 to 180 kilometers / 93 to 112 miles)

After enjoying all that Calvi has to offer, you will ride the coastal road towards the south. The road, although rough and bumpy, has been named as one of the most beautiful coastal roads in all of Europe. After crossing the River Fango, there will be a climb to a magnificent viewpoint from where you can admire the coast and the road that continues in zig-zags.

You can take a break in Porto, at the frontier of the Scandola marine nature reserve, or continue to the Calanches de Piana. Finally, you will climb through the most magnificent and extraordinary Gorges de la Spelunca. You will pass through the Aitone forest before reaching the ancient city of Corte in the true heart of Corsica. You will spend the night next to the river in a superb location.

Day 5: From Corte heading deep south to Bonifacio (approximately 205 kilometers / 127 miles)

You will leave Corte towards the south and pass by a superb waterfall before taking a road very little frequented. The road is long and will permit you to discover the real heartland of Corsica, rarely found by regular tourists.

Later in the south, you will join the main road that leads to Bonifacio, passing by beaches which are nothing but pure paradise. Feel free to stop and bathe wherever takes your fancy! Take some time to discover the extraordinary port town of Bonifacio, perched upon the cliff, before reaching your wonderful hotel for the night.

Day 6: Crossing Corsica (approximately 240 kilometers / 149 miles)

In order to avoid the direct route back to the north, which is full of radars, traffic, and is tediously straight, Corse Active Voyages suggests you follow an itinerary that takes you through the center of the island. Depending upon the time that you have, you could make a detour to visit the famous Palombaggia Beach, the needles of Bavella, or drive directly from Ospedale Lake to take the road north through the villages that make the best charcuterie on Corsica!

You will reach Corte once more, from where you can take the direct route back to Bastia for your flight or ferry. Feel free to request an extra night's accommodation depending upon your travel times.
