Corsica, one of the favourite destinations for bikers! The roadtrip remains indeed the best way to discover the charms of the island and to get to meet its inhabitants.
You will begin this trip from the north of the island, after climbing the Col de Teghime you follow the coast and cliffs discovering beautiful coves. This first stage, between sea and mountain, is the beginning of a long series of discoveries. While crossing the Agriates desert, magnificent scenery awaits you. Then you will take small unknown mountain roads through olive groves lined with cactus and prickly pears. You reach small villages and will take in the sight of cows that roam free.
Then, the region of Balagne stretches out in front of you in a mix of paradisiacal beaches and very green mountainous back country where authentic villages cling to the mountains and where the tiny roads climb and meander towards infinity.
Then, drive to Porto through the famous Creeks of Piana. A unique UNESCO world heritage landscape where magma rocks rise up from the sea .
You dive into the heart of the island and reach the highest road point of Corsica, before getting back onto winding roads through the beautiful Scala di Santa Regina.
