Corsica - the Island of Beauty

Corsica - the Island of Beauty

Go Beyond on a Mediterranean island

5th – 12th October 2024

What's to get excited about!

Corsica, the French island in the Mediterranean sea, is known as the Island of Beauty, and for very good reasons too.

Corsica is made up of green forests and mountains mixed with rugged coastlines, inlets and bays with long sandy beaches, aqua sea and clear blue skies.

We will get to experience this beauty, from our base in Bastia, in a number of ways. We will take the boat along Cap Corse coastline, sea kayak out from Bastia, take the train through the mountains to Bonepart Napoleon’s birth town, Ajaccio, visit Bastia by little train, and be guided around it’s famous Cittadelle de Bastia and take a mini bus tour of the entirety of Cap Corse, taking in all the old villages and Genoese towers.

We will be staying in the Hotel Castellu Rossu, nestled in the trees of a park, located in Bastia, with a beautiful swimming pool and with a wonderful Corsican menu.

This holiday is the ultimate Mediterranean experience.
