Your day by day program

Arrival in Calvi

Your tour starts in Calvi at your hotel. This gives you time to discover the splendid city, a real paradise where life is good: a beach of azure blue, overhung by mountains (natural barrier: the massif of Monte Cinto) and its rock where dominates a medieval city (a magnificent Genoese citadel of the 13th century).. For the free evening meal, we recommend the old streets in the port area.

Night in a 3-star hotel in Calvi.

Calvi - Galéria

From Calvi, the spectacular sandy beaches of Balagne disappear to make way to granite and volcanic rocks of the North-West coast, with steep cliffs in bright colors, ocher, pink or red, leaving room only for a few rare wild beaches, composed of mauve and black sand and pebble torn from the volcanic peaks of the central mountainous corniche. Views over the sea are stunning.

On a road along the coast you will join your evening stop, the small village of Galeria, located by the sea.

Night in hotel.
About 38 km (D+ : 487m ; D- : 472m ; Min. : 2m ; Max. : 138m)

Galéria - Porto

You will continue today on a road that is considered one of the most beautiful in Europe.
A beautiful road winds up and then down towards the Gulf of Porto. With amazing views over Girolata, a beautiful village only accessible by boat or walking. The scenery is incredible, keep your camera handy.

Corte - Zicavo

This day promises to be incredible, a mountain stage through the chestnut trees that will take you through the famous Verde Pass (located at 1289 m) to reach Zicavo, famous for its cold meat.

Zicavo is a mountain village as there are many in Corsica, in the heart of a wild and unspoilt valley. Surrounded by mountains, this village of Haut Taravo in the heart of the Natural Park will seduce you and especially, in summer, its freshness (it is located 750m above sea level). The charm of Zicavo is the water flowing constantly along the roads and running through the village to water the gardens. Above the village, the waterfall of the Pont de la Camera will enchant you with its transparent basins, its waterfall and its flat rocks.

Night in hotel or B&B.

Perched at 762 meters above sea level in the heart of the Alta Rocca, Zonza is prized for its breathtaking setting, which is revealed to the traveler upon arrival.
