Corsica really is a dream cycling destination. This is your chance to see it under your own steam. Start your journey in Bastia and cycle along the Cap Corse, discovering its varied coastal landscapes, more developed and accessible on the east coast and more wild and rugged on the west. Visit Macinaggio and its marina, Centuri and its lobster fishing port, and Nonza and its black pebble beach before reaching the seaside resort of Saint-Florent. After a well-deserved rest day, take the road through the majestic Desert des Agriates to reach the hilltop village of Monticello for a breathtaking view of Ile Rousse. Finally, after visiting some typical Corsican villages, cycle down to the sea and Calvi. The price includes baggage transfers, accommodation, route notes and maps, and bike hire. Electric bikes are available to take the bite out of the hills. Please note that this tour is not available in July and August, when it can get too hot and too busy to make the most of a cycling holiday here.
