Route de Bavella, Corsica

4.8
Perhaps the most dramatic, exciting road in Corsica, Route de Bavella forms a roundtrip total of 112 km (69.5 mi). The road goes through a dense expanse of chestnut trees and old pines and rises steadily up to 1,218 m (3,996 ft), where you'll see the towering statue of "Notre Dame des Neiges" (Our Lady of the Snow). An amazing panorama of peaks and forest spreads out from the top to the northwest. The serrated granite ridge of the Cirque de Gio Agostino is dwarfed by the pink pinnacles of the Aiguilles de Bavella, and behind that soars Mount Incudine.

  • Beautiful mountain road with several views. However should not be afraid of the many turns, like everywhere in Corsica also.

  • Drove twice before the line, however with the car. Even with the car, it's great. This time I was there with the motorcycle on the road. What can I say, you go dizzy. A curve is good after the other, the asphalt and the countless pools invite you to freshen up; You can just need to find it :-). The route de Bavella is just awesome like countless other routes in Corsica. CORSICA IS A BIKING PARADISE!
