An average of 14 km/day. Starting from Corte, arriving by train. Passing by several refuges and gites. Changing landscapes provides rivers, cliffs, views and fields. In the middle of the hike, a ascent to Monte Cinto takes place before going down again towards Calenzana.
A planned hike for a 7-day trip to Corsica via Bastia Airport. Might be tough since it's April and none of the refuges are manned. Also I expect some snow on the road. Crampons and poles are definately needed at this time. Also food and kitchen has to be brought.
