A program 100% created by Gravel Up
Ready to cross Corsica by Gravel ? Our guide has prepared an exceptional route between mountains, coastal cliffs and arid deserts.
Meet us on Sunday in the Sartenais to start the adventure in the heart of a secret place, our base camp, a simply sumptuous eco-shepherd's hut. Disconnection and well-being are the order of the day to recharge the batteries before tackling a real physical challenge.
After a first pedal stroke to discover the Corsican maquis and its thorny bushes, we will leave due north, in the direction of Alta Rocca. The serious stuff starts with the crossing of several passes and in particular the crossing of the superb Coscione plateau, in theory only accessible to hikers of the famous GR20.
We will pass by Corte, cultural capital of Corsica with notably the presence of the only university in Corsican language, before attacking the famous col de la Vierge and its legionnaires' camp. Breathtaking landscapes, between pine forests and arid canyons, you will discover the true center of Corsica, cradle of the whole culture of the island.
We will go back down through the forest of Aitone, mystical atmosphere, before joining the coast and taking the direction of Calvi and Ile Rousse.
An ascent through all the small villages perched on top of the mountains. Breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea and Corsica as you have never seen it before.
Finally, we will take you to the Agriates desert before ending our adventure in Cap Corse, another splendid and authentic region.
Moments of well-being are also on the program - yoga, meditation, relaxation - to allow you to disconnect to better reconnect and make the most of this unique trip.
The beauty of the landscape and the fresh waterfalls will make the physical challenge of this expedition almost easy for the seasoned bikepacker.
Our support vehicle will never be far away to assist you in case of technical or physical problems.
An exceptional trip to share with friends and adventure bike enthusiasts.
