Top nature activities in Corsica
For the more experienced hiker, Capu d’Ortu, a veritable balcony overlooking the sea, is the perfect place for a day or half-day hike. The blue rocks circuit takes you on a 4-hour stroll through the classified calanques of Piana.
The more technical Capu Rossu tour offers breathtaking views. The shady setting of the Aïtone forest will charm you in the middle of summer, with the added pleasure of a dip in a natural pool.
Among Corsica’s must-do nature activities, hiking is also an opportunity to discover high-altitude lakes such as Lake Creno and Lake Nino.
The most beautiful walks
In addition to outdoor activities such as canyoning and accrobranche, Corsica’s topography is ideal for magnificent hiking trails. You’ll discover an incredible variety of landscapes as you hike along coastal paths and promontories facing the sea, as well as forest massifs and mountain trails, discovering waterfalls and natural pools.
