The UK’s leading holiday specialist to Corsica is offering savings on walking tours of the French island as it reports increased interest over the past year.
With 30 years’ experience in arranging package and tailormade holidays to Corsica, with a wide range of self-catering and hotel accommodation on offer, the operator’s collection of walking tours (guided and self-guided) has been extended to meet strong demand. Providing its customers with the opportunity to combine Corsica’s beautiful beaches, laid-back villages and buzzing local life with the added pleasure of taking it all in by foot at a relaxing pace, visitors can make the most of the island’s exceptional scenery.
Corsican Places has reduced its Corsican Island Mystery tour to £1099pp on September 24th, which represents a saving of £136pp. This self-guided tour starts and finishes in Calvi (north west Corsica) and the price includes return flights, departing from either Stansted or Manchester, luggage transfers between walks and airport transfers.
This walking tour provides the perfect contrast between coastal scenery and rugged mountains, with character accommodation and traditional food along the way. Four days of moderately challenging walking along with hotel accommodation on a mixed board (5nts half board + 2 nts bed & breakfast) is included as well as luggage transfers between hotels on the walk, maps and route notes and airport transfers. The tour starts on a spectacular train journey from Calvi to Corte. Customers then join the walk at the Scala di Santa Regina, an old mule path that leads into the central Niolu valley. The path will take customers through an area of pristine pine forests and the scenic tumbling mountain rivers that plunge through a series of waterfalls to form perfect natural rock pools. Once on the west coast, there’s great opportunity to explore the small mountain villages, get accustomed to the rural Corsican way of life and experience the jaw-dropping scenery along the Spelunca gorge and Calanches de Piana.
