Publisher's Description

A mountain range rising from the sea, Corsica holds the most arrestingly beautiful landscapes in the Mediterranean. From its cobalt blue gulfs and shell-sand beaches, hillsides of evergreen maquis give way to pristine oak, chestnut and pine forests, awesome gorges, alpine lakes and a spine of snow-streaked peaks and passes. Among the many trails that penetrate its remotest corners, the GR20, following the island's watershed, is a high-level route that has won an international reputation as being Europe's most challenging long-distance path.

35 detailed trekking maps – showing walking times, places to stay and points of interest, with detailed route descriptions for the entire GR20

Practical information – planning your trip; travelling to Corsica from other parts of Europe, North America and Australasia; getting to the trailheads; historical and cultural background; what to see; health and safety; minimizing your impact on the environment; French and Corsican language sections

Accommodation and restaurants – reviews of places to stay and eat at all budgets, from luxury heritage hotels to the pick of Corsica's gîtes, hostels and restaurants

Gateway towns – comprehensive guides to Ajaccio, Bastia and Calvi

Corsican flora – full-color photo guide to the island’s flora

Author Bio

Freelance travel writer David Abram was born and brought up in south Wales and the Mendip Hills of Somerset in England. His first foray into the Corsican mountains came in 1986, during the sabbatical year of a French degree, when he stumbled upon some waymarks and followed them blindly for two days until wild pigs polished off his supplies. Since then, as an anthropologist and author of the Rough Guide to India, he’s walked extensively in the Himalayas, Europe and North America but still regards Corsica as a benchmark trekking destination.
Regular opportunities to indulge his passion for the island’s food and mountains are provided by annual updating trips for the Rough Guide to Corsica, which he co-authored. David lives and works in Bristol.
