Great canyoning inside beautiful landscapes. Started out under bright sun, water was a little fresh, and a couple of slides later, a thunderstorm broke out 😊 Great fun!

This has to be one of the most stunning sights in all of Corsica. The drive up is amazing. Many stops along the way for a picnic or some great photos.

Nothing will prepare you for the scenery of the Bavellas!! The highest mountain tops near 9000Ft! They are wonderfully ragged, with deep gorges, rivers and forests. So beautiful, do not skip the drive there and if you have time, hike a little bit.

I cycled up the road from Sari Solenzara - long hard climb but worth the effort. The mountains are unforgettable and magnificent. There is great river swimming along the way.

These mountains in southern Corsica are amazingly dramatic. Sheer, precipitous rock spires or "needles" if you will. Like mini Dolomites. Awesome. Go hiking at the Col de Bavella if you are in the area too, amazing views of both coasts and more awesome peaks of...More

Arrive to parking early to avoid crowds and climb up to towers of Bavellas, coming back by forest (GR20).

Hello, Corsica do not hesitate to travel by car to different activities! But personally I recommend the Corsican west side.
