CORSICAN MOUNTAINS & VILLAGES
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
The view from the top of the hill on the last day - and sense of achievement in getting there ! Being able to manage a couple of walks that were beyond our comfort zone.
What did you think of your group leader?
Very skilled and knowledgeable, taught us a lot about walking in difficult terrain and using walking poles. Adjusted to poor weather in first few days and offered an alternative additional walk on rest day because one walk had to be discontinued. He inspired confidence and was generally friendly, helpful and informative, using his language skills well with the group and local people. If there was one minor issue, occasionally he could come across as a bit brusque.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Bring walking poles - we found them very useful on the steeper terrain.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
We enjoyed the holiday rather more than a self guided one we have done in the past - having a guide enabled use to explore terrain we probably would have avoided otherwise and it was great to meet new people.
