Although part of France, this has only been the case since 1768
and Corsica is in many ways independent with its traditions, culture, folk music and
language that is still a major part of life on the island today.
The chequered history of Corsica can be seen around virtually every corner, with
watchtowers, monuments and citadels dotted all over the island. Plus there are
numerous museums to visit.
From the more leisurely stroll to hiking, from fishing to hunting, horse riding to quad
biking, diving to sailing, kayaking to paragliding, there are so many different sports and
sporting activities to keep even the adventure
holiday maker more than happy. And depending upon the time of year, there are
also different mountain activities on offer, such as skiing or rafting.
The wilderness and getting back with nature is something most people enjoy and with
Corsica, this is definitely one of the reasons why Corsica attracts so many walkers.
So from a leisurely stroll to some of the most difficult mountain walks in Europe, nature
lovers will have a holiday they will never forget and with the Natural Regional Park of
Corsica being set up to protect part of the rare and unusual habitats and its many wild
flowers, birds and other endangered animals found on the island, you will go back home
full of amazing memories.
But whatever you want to do on your holiday, we could almost guarantee that you will find
it in Corsica!
