The Calanche di Piana: a world heritage site

  • Piana > Calanche de Piana > Piana (4 hours - 6.2miles)
  • The walk: The walk takes you inland on a rugged track though the forested valley, climbing steadily and steeply. 
  • Option 1 -  Moderate - 10km - 4h - +500m / -475m
    Starting in the village of Piana, take the time to explore the village before setting off on your hike: Piana is listed among the most beautiful villages in France. You walk onto an ancient mule path that hovers high above the sea, with fantastic views of the granite pinnacles of the Calanches de Piana, the coastline is at its most spectacular: blood-red stone pinnacles jutting out of the sea and soaring hundreds of meters into the skies, creating a chaos of giant granite structures carved by the waters and the winds. Your hike goes through the heart of these structures, called the Calanches de Piana. 
  • Option 2 -  Challenging - Capu d'Orto - 15km - 6h - +900m / -875m
    For those who would like to reach the summit Capu d’Orto, the forest quickly gives way to bare rock, and it isn’t long before spectacular sea vistas open. A steep and sun-exposed climb to the summit is rewarded by awe-inspiring 360° views, including much of Corsica’s west coast. At 1300m in altitude and only 3km from the coastline, Capu d’Orto is one of the best vantage spots on the entire island. Not all is lost if you choose not to complete the out-and-back to Capu d’Orto: our return journey remains on a scenic crest with sea views and then enters a centuries-old chestnut forest.
  • Transfer from the end of your walk - restaurant/café there - back to Porto.
  • Night in Porto

  • Col de la Croix pass > Girolata > Col de la Croix pass (4 hours - 5.5miles )
  • The walk: From the Col de la Croix pass, at just over 200m, you descend gradually on a partially shaded path that follows the coastline.

  • Transfer to the start of your walk.
  • Option 1 - Challenging - Curzo > Col de la Croix > Girolata - 17km, 6h, +150/-1300m
    The full walk from the village of Curzo takes you on a steep climb up to a stunning ridgeline from where much of Corsica’s western coastline is at your feet. You descend the ridgeline in question to the Col de la Croix road pass, where the "Moderate level" walk begins. The initial climb from the village of Curzo up to the crest is steep and sun-exposed.   
  • Option 2 - Moderate - Col de la Croix > Girolata - 9km, 4h, +50/-600m
    The walk takes you on the famed "sentier du facteur" – literally the “mailman’s path” – the path Guy the mailman took every day to deliver the mail to the village of Girolata, lost in time, only accessible by foot or by boat. At the remote Tuara beach you can take a secluded dip before taking a path etched into the rocky coastline to Girolata. Plenty of restaurants there, and a second great swim in the Med sea ! You return to Tuara beach in a loop via the "Mare e Monti" trail (another dip!) and then retrace your steps up to the Col de la Croix, start of your walk
