The gorges on this park are totally awesome, the mountain road on the way up needs nerves of steel but is well worth the drive. We were there in Autumn and the colours were just beginning to change, it was lovely.

This is one of those hikes that you want to embark on early, before the crowds. We went beyond the 2nd lake to the port that takes you to the GR20 and across the GR20 for a bit to come down the otherside. Not for the faint-hearted or unfit.

The road to the car park for the walk to lake Melu is not just challenging it is the scariest drive I have done on Corsica .... and there are many difficult roads in Corsica - we were stopped on a B road because a car had gone over the edge and the gendarmerie were controlling the traffic while the...

Trip starts in Corte with a narrow attractive road uphill to a parking (5 EUR per day). The last part of the road is closed due to broken bridga. From parking up there's a beautiful walk to two lakes (Lac du Miel, Lac du Campitello). Some ladders help you climb to the first one, but it is still an easy... More

The drive up is challenging but the other drivers are very curious and considerate. The walk itself is gorgeous - all up hill with some ladders, then you get to the lake, make sure you walk down the other way so you don't have to climb down the ladders and get into a traffic jam:). We were lucky someone at... More

This gorge runs through the middle of Corsica and is just alongside the old capital of Corte. Visit the town then go to the gorge to bath and play in the river. The water is very very cold but you get used to it. You'll need a car to get there. Take dry clothes to change into and a picnic.... More

Corsica is one of my favourite holiday destinations - the sun, sea, food. scenery etc are all great and the people are really helpful, friendly and polite. When the sun is too hot head of to The Gorges and relax and cool off in the cooler waters of really great fresh water pools. There are lots of places like this... More

Driving up there is very nice. Especially with a sportscar. Walk was pretty heavy and nit for the fainthearted. Chains and the stairs were a bit overcrowded as quite some people were a bit scared to use them. All did it, but a bit slower than usual. If you are used to hiking in the swiss alps, nothing new here... More

magnificent mountain views on a road that winds and winds around the gorge. Good little restaurant halfway up.

You should park the your car at the end of asphalt road ( parking place) or in season even sooner, as it gets soon full. Local organizers usually show you to stop and park the car. Further up, it is quite steep trail (not long, but hard) with nice views, leading to 2 lakes. You should reach at least the... More
