Gorges de l'Asco, Asco

4.9
#20 of 70 in Outdoors in Haute-Corse
To reach the remote villages of the valley of Asco, you must first pass through Gorges de l'Asco. Drive along a nearly 4 km (2.5 mi) defile, featuring a wild, desolate landscape of red granite and sparse scrub. The thin road follows the winding course of the river, with rock and scree slopes rising up on either side, prickly juniper bushes clinging to them. Close to the river bed, a few small pines add a touch of green. At points along the ravine, the river collects into clear pools that may just inspire you to jump in. Near the top, pause to admire the old stone bridge, perched precariously astride the running water. To visit Gorges de l'Asco on your trip to Asco, use our Asco tour planner.

    We visited first restonica of asco, the way to arrive is similar but shorter. Always overhanging. The River this year was very dry so I also puddles were not many. The bathroom personally I did because I had read about the Michelin Guide which was prohibited. I guess for discharges upstream. Particular as place, however go into restonica if you get a chance, definitely better than the Gorges of asco, which are endorsed and deep, a good show between two mountains, however, the water is too hot to be a river didn't make me excited too!

    Nice place in nature to fuck him and bathe at the end of the Valley after the Asco village (it is signposted 'Genoese bridge' from the village). Nice fresh water by strong heat, and depth under the Genoese to dive bridge. accessible to a few hundred metres walk (the road was blocked a little higher in July). departure of a trail to reach the Red Island after the bridge.

    Great afternoon or evening to Asco. The gorges are beautiful with natural pools. A nice area with a possibility to swim to go further than the bridge.

    Many access points even with children (2 years and up) for a swim in the crystal clear waters of the river Asco!
