Gorges de la Restonica, Corsica

(320+ reviews on the web)
Forest Hiking Trail
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 world travel planner, Corte Edition.
