The opportunity to witness the mountains and the sea in the same day is an unforgettable experience. Imagine riding gravel paths towards majestic summits, on winding roads less traveled, then descending towards the crystalline coasts of the Mediterranean. A stunning contrast that will surely amaze you.

What our clientssay about us.

On a whim, I put my trust in Gravel Up because I had a pressing need for fresh air and a change of scenery. I ended up on the Adventurer Corse by chance. The organization is meticulous, and the communication is spot-on. When the Gravel Up team takes charge of you, you just sit back and enjoy. The Gravel tracks, the accommodation, the attentiveness, the advice, the supervision, the surprises at the end of the day, the whole experience is planned so that you just enjoy your stay without any inconvenience. I'm looking forward to the next destination. Thank you so much!

I live in Corsica and was convinced of the beauty of the landscape before the workshop. I've cycled a lot of kilometers on Corsican roads, but with Gravel Up I discovered how to reach the inaccessible. The support was faultless: guide, mechanic, and catering, better than the pros. I rediscovered the welcoming and authentic Corsica in the accommodation and catering. And, no doubt by chance, despite our differences, the group was very close-knit. La Pietra was a great help to extend the evenings in good spirits. Unforgettable memories. To be repeated.

Flawless organization, with organizers taking care of every detail, including bike set-up (even for non-rented bikes), and a great atmosphere. Corsica lives up to its title as an island of beauty, and the courses allow you to appreciate a large part of it. It gave me the chance to test out my new Gravel, which was (coincidentally) also an origine/graxx: a very good choice!

Some customers may say that perfection doesn't exist... but at Gravel Up, it does. I took part in a 3-day trip to Corsica. There were no false notes: the accommodation, the meals, the routes, the quality of the Gravel bikes rented (full carbon), and the exceptional scenery. Everything was meticulously chosen to please the participants, in a good mood of course. Disconnection guaranteed. Olivier, the organizer, was fantastic, and Greg, the bike guide, was extraordinary! Go with your eyes closed.

Gravel, Corsican style. The Beautiful Isle is well known for it’s rocky coastline with beautiful beaches and mountains aplenty, not to mention it’s culinary delights, traditions and an all round generous nature. Which all makes for an intoxicating mix, so it’s easy to see why we’re so keen to take more trips there !
