Gorges de la Restonica, Corsica

4.7
#1 of 15 in Trails in Corsica
One of the picturesque highlights of Corsica, Gorges de la Restonica offers you the opportunity to hike, swim, and admire the gorges with numerous pools. The Restonica River flows gently through the low valley past forested pines and river pools providing a refreshing place to cool off. You have two separate hiking trails to choose from--the popular Melo and Capitello Lakes trail and the Monte Rotondo route high above the valley reaching a height of 2,600 m (8,530 ft), which is more rigorous. The splendor and accessibility of the valley makes this a popular place for nature lovers, causing the road to get busy during peak season. Gorges de la Restonica is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Corte Edition.

  • After a small walk in Corte, the Restonica Valley is a must-do for that comes in the region. It is not necessary to go to the end of the Valley if you want to dip. first free parking at 5 km from the town can take a small path accessible to all and to already take full eyes...

  • Park on the parking lot and walk. You will discover great lakes. If you want to drink pastis take the bottle in your luggage, the water you'll find on your way, it is so cold that no need to ice!

  • The gorges are beautiful even in full November with its autumnal colors but in midsummer station cars the single road that leads into the Gorge should be crowded and it is very difficult to stop to take pictures. Parking at the top of the Gorge is € 6. Watch out for the cows that graze in the Gorge in the middle of the road.

  • Beautiful pristine corner where you can spend a few days relaxing. Along the River lie many natural pools uncrowded. The water is very cold and the road to get there is not the best but still remains one of the most beautiful places in Corsica.

  • The most beautiful gorge I've ever had the opportunity to see! The color of the water is amazing! Do not hesitate to forward a little on the road to find nice spots with a little less world beyond 2 km after the camping no individuals other than the parking which is the starting point for a visit to the Lakes.

  • Beautiful place, as frozen in time. Discover absolutely. The bowls or natural pools are a real treat in warm weather. Nice but a little fresh water. Careful, the road that runs along the Gorge's barely wider than a bicycle. Big danger to cross... with the void below.
