Corsica is one of the most stunning islands to explore on a bike. The island has fantastic smooth roads that take you over mountains, along coastal roads, into historic ports and towns and have you immersed into Corsican culture.
We have designed a route so that, taken steadily, it is manageable and enjoyable for healthy cyclists regardless of experience in the mountains. However, this holiday can also offers a fantastic challenge to those wanting to push themselves further: LetsGoVelo can adapt routes to suit experience and fitness levels so you can get the most out of your holiday.
