For the advanced taste
If you love motorcycle tours in exciting places with a very special atmosphere, you must make the wildly romantic Corsica the destination of your next motorcycle trip.
If you feel you could easily get dizzy during your motorcycle tour on Corsica, don't be embarrassed. You are not the first person to feel this way. You have to get used to so many turns. But on the coast of the fourth largest island in the Mediterranean there are also many beautiful bays to relax in. Take a break and enjoy.
A motorcycle trip on Corsica offers you everything: winding roads with unbelievable views of the Mediterranean Sea and untamed nature. The wilderness hints where typical Corsican stubbornness might come from, a people who have never considered themselves overly patriotic to France.
Lonely beaches and impressive rock formations characterize the almost 1000 km long coast of Corsica. A straight road is nowhere to be found here. But in the hinterland perhaps? On the contrary. Too mountainous. The routes here are no less demanding and the term "asphalt" is sometimes a loving flattery for the road surface.
But why hasn't a motorcycle tourist ever complained about the road in Corsica yet? Out of fear of the Corsicans – maybe.
But certainly there is at least one other reason: The island is simply too beautiful, so you can forgive easily any shortcomings in the road conditions.
You'll experience impressive vegetation on Corsica and get to know a wide range of unique culinary specialities. An encounter with the spicy Corsican cheese was described by the French comic book hero Asterix as an explosive experience. So be sure to try it! All varieties of local cheese made from sheep's or goat's milk are offered by many small inns along the picturesque streets of the island.
Countless sausage specialities are also made from the free-range pigs that are widespread on the island. The animals enjoy a natural diet of chestnuts, acorns and beechnuts. Combined with the traditional smoking over chestnut wood, the meat of Corsican pigs has a unique, delicate taste.
For motorcyclists there are attractive routes all over the island, which make motorbike tours on Corsica an a class apart.
Curvy roads meandering along adventurous routes through the ever-present mountains and wilderness that will amaze you at every bend. The highest mountain of Corsica, Monte Cinto, with 2706 meters, can be found on the west coast. But apart from Monte Cinto, there are other mountains with a height of over 2000 meters which make the area a real paradise for motorcycle tours. The mountains Monte Rotondo (2622 meters) and Punta Minuta (2556 meters) for example offer impressive tours.
