Corsica

Welcome to Corsica. This gem of an island is full of gravel paths and tiny roads. Between mountains, cliffs and the sea theres also deserted wilderness from where you will discover the beauty of the Mediterranean from a totally different angle.

Presentation

Col de verde, Col de la Vierge or Col de Saint-Eustache? Unless you prefer the desert or the sea to the mountains? We aren't sure where to take you first as theres too much to choose from. "L'Ile de Beauté" as Corsica is otherwise known is the perfect playground for gravel.

Heres some of our highlights from our gravel bike adventures on Corsica:

  • riding in the mountains and by the sea in the same day

  • the poorly maintained roads are perfect for a gravel bike!

  • the sound of our bikes on the smooth gravel tracks

  • natural water fountains almost everywhere

  • small black wild pigs and horses on the Corsican plateau

  • local food specialities (have you tasted wild boar paté yet?)
