Corsica, Ile de Beauté

Corsica, the island of beauty is located about 150 km southeast of the French coast. No other island in the Mediterranean sea offers such a variety of spectacular landscapes. Whether you look for snow-capped mountains with peaks higher than 2700 m, rocky steep coasts, pristine gorges with wild rivers, Mediterranean macchia, beautiful white beaches or rustic, small villages: Corsica can offer all of this and more. I was lucky enough to visit this characterful place twice, once circling the island by bike, a second time exploring the spectacular eastern coast on a number of amazing hikes. This page collects some of my favorite impressions from these trips.
