One of our most popular road cycling holidays in France visits Corsica ; known to the ancient Greeks as “Kalliste” - the most beautiful, and referred to as “The Beautiful Isle” by generations of travellers ever since, Corsica is one of the most diverse places in Europe.
Our place-to-place tour around the north of this Mediterranean gem takes in the very best of the many delights that this special island has to offer. Beginning and ending in the bustling historic city of Bastia on the eastern coast of the island, our tour is a fascinating combination of quiet coastal roads, rustic hillside villages and deserted coves. The island also boasts some of the most spectacular mountain riding you could ever wish for. 
We begin by riding around Cap Corse, the island’s stunningly beautiful and sparsely populated northern peninsular. From here we ride through the mountainous Desert des Agriates and passing numerous olive groves, vineyards and mountain villages, we follow the famous Route des Artisans to the chic coastal town of Calvi with its marina, perfectly preserved citadel and pastel coloured houses.
Beyond Calvi we head to the tiny and peaceful resort village of Porto along a road which is regarded by many as the most stunning coastal route in Europe. From Porto we head back inland, climbing over the island’s highest mountain pass before dropping down to the old capital of Corte.
We spend our final day riding through the chestnut forests of the Castagniccia, arriving in Bastia for one last evening of fine Corsican food and wine. An unforgettable week of riding in a destination so close, yet so dramatically different.
