France: Corsica

North Corsican Wonders Between Coast and Mountains

  • The Island of Beauty boasts an incredible palette of scenery: coastal landscapes, stunning shorelines, breath-taking mountains,
  • Magical places where crystal-clear water, deserted creeks and wild cliffs stand side-by-side.
  • Fragrance of aromatic plants, citrus, eucalyptus and lavender along your walks

Corsica is not called the Island of Beauty without any reason. From Bastia to Calvi, discover the north coast with stunning landscapes, unspoilt beaches, heritage and rich tradition.

Enjoy the fragrance of the maquis (scrubland), carried on the wind from the mountains to the coast. This heady mix of plants includes eucalyptus, juniper, rosemary, heather, myrtle, sage, mint, thyme and lavender. The yellow immortelle has the most distinctive aroma and is one of the most celebrated plants.

Taste the Corsican unique flavours with its charcuterie: richly-marbled coppa, lonzu, prisuttu and figatellu. Fish and seafood are accented with local herbs including oregano, marjoram and mint. Honey and chestnuts are other staple island products. Other delights that should not be missed are the aromatic wines with their own strong identity from L'Ile-Rousse and Calvi.

Through the enchanting landscapes, this walking tour will introduce you to the scent and taste of Corsica.
