Corsica - one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean and a paradise for motorcyclists! The outward and return journeys take us through France with a total of four overnight stops in between and are a tour in themselves, as we don't just drive on the motorway.

Mobility: The offer is not suitable for people with reduced mobility. Please contact us for more information.

It would be a shame to pass by the numerous highlights of France, such as the Ardèche Gorge, the Mont Ventoux (famous for the Tour de France, among others) and the Verdon Gorge, without having taken them under your wheels.

Unlike many other tour operators, we use the night ferries for the crossings from Toulon to Corsica and back. They are more expensive, but we gain two additional driving days.

On Corsica we arrive in Bastia and stay not far away in a very nice hotel directly at the sea. From there our day trips lead us into the mountains and valleys with wonderful roads for cruising or cornering. The pigs, goats, cows and horses that actively participate in the traffic make you feel like you've been transported back 100 years in a time machine.

Many of our participants go to the island for the second or third time. Once you've been there, you'll fall for the island's charm forever!

Tour itinerary:

Day 1

Arrival in Lyon.

Departure at 7.00 a.m. from the Geismühle West service area (A57) heading south via Luxembourg, Metz, Nancy, Dijon and Beaune to our intermediate hotel near Lyon.

Alternatively, you can join the group on the way or travel to Lyon on your own.

Day 2

Through the Ardèche Gorge to Séguret.

Day trip from Lyon through the Ardèche Gorge to the foot of Mont Ventoux to our second hotel in Séguret.

Day 3

Over the Mont Ventoux to the ferry...

Day tour over the Mont Ventoux and along the Grand Canyon du Verdon to Toulon for embarkation to Corsica.

Day 4

Around the Cap Corse.

After our arrival in Corsica, we take a short day tour around Cap Corse on the way to our base hotel to get accustomed.

Day 5

To the west coast of Corsica.

Our day tour today takes us 'across the island' to Calvi, on the coastal road to the Gulf of Girolata, through the Spelunca Gorge and over the Col de Vergio back to the base hotel.

Day 6

Through the mountains of Corsica.

Today starts with a ride on the narrow headland between the Lagnunensee Etang de Biguglia and the sandy beach of Plage de Marana. After this "flat stage" there are "curves to the bone" on our way into the mountains. One of the day's destinations is the panoramic road through the Valée d'Asco.

Day 7

Rest day.

Day at leisure ... to, for example, just lie around relaxed on the beach or go for a little spin.

Day 8

Across the island to the ferry.

Since our ferry to Toulon leaves in the evening, we have time for a day trip to the middle east of the island, where we will again drive on many small roads. The most south-western point is Ghisoni. In an elegant arc to the northeast we reach Bastia in the evening, where we board the ferry to Toulon.

Day 9

Through the Maritime Alps to the intermediate hotel.

From Toulon we travel via Saint-Tropez and Entrevaux, past Lac de Castillon to Castellane to our intermediate hotel.

Day 10

Through the Vercors to Lyon.

Through the Département Drôme, one of the most beautiful regions of France, and the wild and rugged Vercors with its many passes, we travel to our last stopover hotel in Lyon.

Day 11

Return journey.

Joint or individual journey home to Krefeld or home.
