Corsica: Mountains Among the Mediterranean Sea 20000 Ajaccio fr

Corsica, a mountain in the Mediterranean, whose highest peak - Monte Cinto - stands proud at 2,710 meters tall. 

Its astonishing scenery, its almost unreal colors, the smells of the scrub, its non-stop sunshine and its preserved traditions are what make it a popular destination.

One of the most well-known natural destinations is its scrubland - far more than being just a landscape, it's also an essential element in the Corsican ecosystem.

Even today, certain bushes and herbs still inspire traditional objects, decoration, well-being and luxury products. 

A Land of Contrasts

Hiking is the main activity, and a wide choice of hikes and walks will allow you to explore this land of contrasts.
Follow the mythical GR 20, a hiking trail that crosses Corsica and its different mountain ranges. Visit the Corsica Regional Nature Park, a nature reserve created in 1972, which today covers more than a third of the island, with an area of 350,510 hectares. Its flora and fauna include some threatened species.
A “must” for all nature lovers.
