Tour Overview

An island can make for a pleasingly busy week of exploration, and Corsica is no exception. Join a small group of fellow travellers to experience its highlights, including enchanting Cap Corse, where villages cling to steep hillsides above sparkling bays. As our Corsica tour unfolds, we’ll criss-cross the island’s varied natural landscapes, from the dramatic Rocca Mountains to historic Ajaccio bay, where Napoleon was born. And we’ll take the time to enjoy the stunning ‘Mother of Pearl’ coast, where miles of sandy beaches fringe the Mediterranean.
