Corsica Bike Tour

Corsica is located 200 miles from the south of France, 70 miles west of Italy and 8 miles from the Italian island of Sardinia. From the miles of untouched coastline to the glittering  blue sea, it offers some of the world’s most amazing road cycling mountain scenery. The Greeks named it Kalliste, “the most beautiful one”. However, we call it the “challenging one” as it is one of our most difficult bike tours in Europe. On this trip, each day’s route offers a cumulative elevation gain of around 3,500 feet. Ready to travel to this part of the world? Join us and ride some of the most scenic biking routes in the world during 6 days of amazing bicycling.
