Guided Road cycling holiday

Cycling on Corsica Island is very special. Your start of the cycling week will be in Bastia and ends in Bastia. The island attracts many road cyclists from all around the world. Beautiful landscapes are waiting to be discovered. Almost two-thirds of Corsica Island is covered by natural parks. Corsica is also known as “the mountain in the Sea”. The mountainous terrain makes Corsica not an easy island to cycle but that makes it more challenging to cycle. The route is famous because of the stunning landscapes, crystal-clear waters, impressive cliffs, and spectacular views. Furthermore, you’ll cycle tough climbs, and great downhills through undulating natural beauties. Especially the rugged Mediterranean coast is typical of the island’s culture and heritage.

On all cycling days, you’ll climb some 700m on the mountains a day and you’ll cycle around 100 km. These two things make this cycle trip a challenging cycling week. You discover the amazing scenery that this Mediterranean island has to offer. Ride along the roads switching between coast and mountains and meet proud local people who will show their passion for food and traditions.

The accommodation is all well located and offers all the comfort you need; whether in hotels, guest houses or auberges (double rooms). Certainly, this guided Road Cycling trip on Corsica Island is a must-do for every keen cyclist!

Join us and get a fantastic cycling holiday on the island of Corsica!

Day 1
From Bastia into the Balagne / +115km - +551m
The first stage starts from Bastia and heads westwards up over the Col de Teghime. From here, you have a great view over Bastia and the region to the south. The view also extends to the west and over to the magnificent bay of St. Florent. The road sweeps downhill from here, through Patrimonio, a region known for its vineyards (a quick stop to taste a few good wines is not a bad idea!). You will then cross St. Florent and ride through the Corsican desert (le désert des Agriates), before reaching the small villages of the Balagne, on the northwest coast. Harder option: +140km for +2450m Overnight in Calvi.
Day 2
From the Balagne to the bay of Porto / +80km - +1300m
The itinerary follows the coastal road along crystal clear waters and offers some stunning views. The major climb of the day is the Col de Palmarella. After the "Col de la Croix", through a few typical villages, you will reach Porto and its famous Genoese Tower. If you want to, you can ride up to the "Calanques de Piana" (an extraordinary rock formation, UNESCO World Heritage). Harder option: +140km for +3000m Overnight in Porto.
Day 3
Through the Spelunca Gorges to the Heart of Corsica / +115km - +1477m
Leaving Porto and the coast, today's stage leads you through stunning gorges into the Aïtone forest and up to the highest road pass of the island, the Col de Vergio. Don't be surprised to see some pigs, cows, goats, or other wildlife on your way. A long downhill awaits you (the twisty and narrow Scala Santa Regina is just pure pleasure!). Before crossing Corte (where the island's university is located), reach the region of Venaco. Harder option: +115km for +2980m Overnight in Venaco.
Day 4
From the center of the island to the bay of Propriano / +110km - +1178m
The day starts with the Col de Vizzavona, followed by a short fast downhill, before climbing again, up the beautiful Col de Scalella, further on the route undulates through some tiny villages (some of them known for their prehistorical vestiges). Today accommodation offers you a great view over the bay of Propriano, and after a long day on your bike, you can enjoy a cold drink watching the sunset! Harder option: +145km for +2500m Overnight in the bay of Propriano.
Day 5
From the Propriano bay to the Coscione plateau / +95km - +2400m
Today, you will cross the Alta Rocca region, with its old historical, olive trees and mills. From the village of Zonza, the fittest will take the climb up to the famous Col de Bavella. The views over the Bavella needles are just amazing! Then it continues to undulate until the Col de la Vaccia (+1195m), and a gentle descent to our overnight stop. Harder option: +115km for +2800m
Day 6
From the Coscione to the historical capital of Corsica / +80km - +1750m
You have a few kilometers to warm up, before attacking the first climb of 3 this stage has to offer: the Col de Verde. A beautiful road through the Verde forest followed by the next uphill section, up the superb Col de Serbia. The views are just wonderful! But keep your eyes on the road during the long and twisty descent. The next pass is a bit easier and also offers unique views over the Corsican countryside. Down again on a superb and twisty road, before rolling the last few kilometers into Corte, the historical capital of the island. Harder option: +100km for +2250m
Day 7
The Castagniccia / +105km - +2150m
Deep through the villages of the Castagniccia, today's stage leads you into this area known for its old chapels, natural water sources, and centuries-old chestnut trees. That's pure nature! Keep your eyes peeled for the "Milan Royal" (a local bird of prey) flying gracefully through the sky. Soon you will reach the east coast again, and Bastia is not much further! Distance: +105km to the office: you'll have some time to get changed before your transfer to the airport of the port.
