A program 100% created by Gravel Up

The discovery of the center of Corsica by bike.

  • An itinerary accessible to all: On Day 1, we will start by getting to grips with the Gravels by exploring the Corsican scrubland - and be warned, it can sting the calves. We will take our time, preparing ourselves physically and mentally for the next 4 days, which promise to be rich in both sporting and cultural terms!

We will meet you at our base camp, hidden in the heart of the Sartenais. Hidden yes, because our host renovated alone his eco sheepfold and keeps it secret for our greatest pleasure. A real haven of peace to start this unique adventure, to get to know each other and already start to disconnect. 

Between Corsican vineyards, authentic villages of the center and the mythical needles of Bavella we will make you discover the province of Alta Rocca. The objective is to reach the Coscione plateau which is normally only accessible to hikers. And it is precisely there that the magic of the gravel operates, at ease as well on the roads as on the paths.

Back to the south by the massif of Ospedale and the heights of Porto-Vecchio to come back to our base camp and take the time to realize the adventure that we have just lived. 

We will close the adventure by a moment of sharing still under the magic of the crossing of the Corsican mountains by bike and the strong bonds that we wove together.

We promise you that after that, you will ask for more!

The complete list will be sent to you a few weeks before your expedition. You will find here the few essential items that you may not have at home:

  • Cycling shorts with chamois to be more comfortable

  • Bike gloves to avoid blisters

  • Cycling shoes: the use of automatic pedals is recommended but not mandatory, we allow the use of flat pedals. It is important to be able to stand up on the pedals in order to negotiate certain descents and climbs.

Physical preparation

To get the most out of this expedition, we recommend that you practice an endurance sport such as jogging, swimming or cycling several times a week. Having already done long bike rides of at least 4 hours will allow you to feel more comfortable and better enjoy the breathtaking landscapes you will cross. At least 2 days in a row of cycling experience is a plus.

Use of automatic pedals is mandatory, ability to maneuver the bike on all types of terrain and good braking technique.

Great Adventurer program in Corsica, top-notch team, fabulous accommodation, and a wide variety of sporting and fun routes in a dream environment.

Une expérience incroyable dans un cadre magnifique et organisée de main de maître par toute l’équipe de Gravel Up !! Tout fut parfait ! Les vélos, le camp de base, les parcours, les pauses déjeuners et bien sûr James notre guide qui veilla sur nous tout au long de ces jours d’aventure en Corse. Si vous aimez le vélo et voulez vivre une expérience hors des sentiers battus dont vous vous rappellerez toute votre vie : foncez ! Gravel Up est fait pour vous !!


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!

An exciting stay with the discovery of varied and intense sporting routes through magnificent landscapes. Quality and friendly staff who were able to help us discover the local cuisine at the same time.

Jacques P. - September 2022

Very well organized trip to Corsica. A great island for gravel cycling. Gravel Up guiding was very professional and the route planning adapted to our group. Gravel bikes were very good (both muscle and e-bikes). Breakfasts, lunches, snacks and dinners were tasty and plenty. Accomodation (the base camp) is very special! All in all a 5* trip.

Timo M.

Excellent trip to Corsica! I highly recommend eGravel Origine for men too: equalizes fitness differences - without compromising cycling.

Jaakko P.

It was a unique gravel cycle experience in Corsica. Without GravelUp, I would never have traveled to such a beautiful island. The accommodation and itineraries were robist in the right sense. Strong recommendation😎

Terho K.

Gravel in Corsica. The Isle of Beauty is known for its rugged coastline, heavenly sandy beaches, gourmet culinary heritage and traditions, not to mention its generous nature and mountains. An inspiring cocktail for the GravelUp and 3T teams, who invite you to explore the most beautiful corners of Corsica on the 3T Exploro gravel bike: 5 days of pedaling and a change of scenery guaranteed...
