Description

A guidebook of long-distance and day walks on the island of Corsica. The three long-distance routes - Mare e Monti, Mare-Mare Nord and Mare-Mare Sud are covered in total over 26 days. A selection of 18 day walks in prime spots, explore the towering forests, gushing cascades, beautiful isolated coves, aromatic maquis and spectacular river gorges that Corsica has to offer. The 124km Mare e Monti is the most wonderful 10 day trek, and provides a roller coaster of treats from breathtaking coastline to some awe-inspiring mountainous landscapes.  The Mare-Mare Nord is an 11 day, 140km coast-to-coast route right through the heart of Corsica, while the 5 day, 77km Mare-Mare Sud traverses a great slice of southern Corsica from the Golfe de Porto-Vecchio in the east over to the Golfe de Valinco in the west. Reprinted in 2013 with updates.
