5 days of gravel, relaxation and fun exploring Corsica as you’ve never seen it before. Experience the local culture, taste the local specialities and discover the incredibly varied geography. All part of our adventure, in a small group of ten intrepid cyclists led by a qualified guide.

The journey starts at our base camp in the south of the island where you’ll find all you need to refresh and recharge after a good days riding. Our host is fascinating and passionate about his eco sheep farm built with his own fair hands. He’s a true gourmet of travel, food and most of all people, and will regale you with stories of life on the island.

Lift your head from your GPS and make the most of the routes put together by the GravelUp team, with incredible views a-plenty. It’s not just about the riding though - yoga, meditation and relaxation is all a part of the trip, allowing you those moments of calm to fully refresh and get the full experience. Et voila… the perfect expedition to fall under the spell of the Isle of Beauty, as Corsica is otherwise known!

This was my first experience on gravel and it could not have been a better destination to try it. The Gravel Up team were very welcoming, highly organised and confidently handled riders of quite varying abilities and fitness.

It says a lot for an event, and those who lead it, when the time off the bike is almost as good as time on the trails. I would recommend Gravel Up to anybody wanting to test themselves a little (or a lot!) and to enjoy great company and excellent food in the best surroundings.

Great setting with a team that takes care of everything. An exceptional guide with a lot of attention and care. Real Gravel on beautiful trails and stunning roads! Hotel, lodging and incredible restaurants were all perfect!

A superb breath of fresh air.

Customer review Jacque R. - Corsica

What an adventure!!!! What an adventure!!!!

5-star Gravel trails (hence the rating 😉), incredible landscapes, just the right amount of elevation gain, generous and delicious refreshments and dinners, and then a staff as friendly as they are attentive.

In short, the concept is top-notch (we knew that), but the reality is even better. A big congratulations to GravelUp, and we'll see you again soon.

Customer feedback Fernand G. - Morvan

I will be travelling again with GravelUp and highly recommend the experience. The program was a good balance of scripted and flexible, not too full, but with beautiful offerings.
