Greentraveller's Travel Advice: To reach Corsica from the UK, travellers have a few green options to choose from. The first option is a rail journey from London via Lille and Marseille and then an overnight ferry to Bastia.  Alternatively, the second option is a train journey via Paris and Nice, followed by an overnight ferry to Calvi.

Details of this Corsican Mountain Trekking Holiday

<p>Rising abruptly from the Mediterranean, with pink granite peaks soaring to over 2500 metres, Corsica is known as ‘the mountain in the sea’. Famous for its dramatic coastline and pretty, perched mountain villages, this rugged island reveals its most spectacular scenery only to those who are prepared to travel on foot. Starting out in the south-east amongst the towering pinnacles of Bavella, our route takes us through the heart of the island to Calenzana, close to the colourful resort of Calvi on the north-west coast.</p><p>[img_assist|nid=8721|title=|desc=|link=none|align=right|width=286|height=200]En route, we negotiate 180 kilometres of mountainous terrain; forested slopes, high pasture, airy ridges and alpine valleys. A short, optional detour takes us to the high point of the trip at the summit of the stunning viewpoint peak, Paglia Orba (2525m). The GR20 is a route for walkers who are in good shape - it is a tough, rugged mountain itinerary. Though well established and well marked, the paths are often very rocky with numerous steep uphill sections and descents that are rough under foot. Expect to be hiking for between 6 and 10 hours each day. Always challenging, this is unquestionably one of Europe's great mountain walks.</p>
