tra mare et montipath.

"tra mare et monti"path.

Described as “une montagne dans la mer”, a mountain in the sea, Corsica is a compelling destination for hikers and walkers. Located in the western Mediterranean, tucked into the “armpit” of Italy, Corsica’s wild and relatively undeveloped interior is crisscrossed with thousands of kilometers of marked trails.

The Tra Mare e Monti, “between the mountains and the sea”, winds its way along the northwest coast of Corsica alternately wandering between secluded mountain hinterlands and stunning coastal seascapes. Beginning and ending in the porto cities of Ajaccio and Calvi, this 12 day journey will take us through the Scandola nature reserve with its incredibly red cliffs, beneath the curiously serrated peaks of Paglia Orba and Cinq Frati and to the tiny fishing village of Galeria accessible only by foot or boat. Ancient mule paths, time worn Genoese footbridges, sleepy hamlets with simple “gites” offering classic Corsican cuisine, are all beckoning reminders a long tradition of traveling by foot.
