Thoughtfully designed, meticulously planned, carefully graded, and expertly guided walking tours and hiking holidays along well-loved and off-the-beaten-track footpaths.

Overview

Holiday Highlights

  • Discover diverse landscapes with a varied walking program, from coastal strolls to mountain trails.
  • Commence the week with a delightful coastal stroll to Revellata, a charming experience.
  • Sample the stunning GR20 and Mare e Monte trails for breath-taking mountain scenery.
  • Enjoy seascapes, kites soaring, and the aroma of wild rosemary during our walks.
  • Savour local dining, then take an after-dinner stroll along the charming harbour.

Immerse yourself in the captivating landscapes of Corsica, where the union of soft sands and rugged beauty paints a timeless allure. As you traverse coastal paths, serenaded by the graceful flight of kites overhead and enveloped in the aromatic embrace of wild rosemary, Corsica reveals itself as the embodiment of the ancient Greeks' description—'kalliste,' the beautiful.

Your journey unfolds seamlessly, guided by an expert leader who adds depth to your exploration. Each step offers you a glimpse into the island's rich tapestry of culture, from villages frozen in time to historical landmarks that echo the footsteps of figures like Napoleon. The 1950s marina, a haven for the glitterati, adds a touch of glamour to your historical narrative.

The walking program artfully intertwines coastal and mountain routes, inviting you to begin with a gentle stroll through the fragrant marquis, where citrus and wild rosemary accompany your footsteps. Rural Corsican villages reveal centuries-old charm, with churches, monasteries, and abandoned hamlets narrating stories of the past. Ascend into the mountains, where alpine huts provide vantage points for panoramic views, creating a week of unparalleled contrast and discovery.

Corsica's avian residents, notably the Black and Red Kites, become silent companions during your walks, gracefully riding thermals above. Easily recognizable by their distinctive forked tails, these birds add a touch of nature's spectacle to your wanderings.

Calvi, a compact town nestled within the island's embrace, unfolds with historic charm. The Citadel presides over roads winding down to a bustling harbour, where the 'beautiful people' moor their yachts. The waterfront becomes your picturesque setting for savouring local cuisine in charming restaurants.

This guided walking holiday in Calvi promises not just a week of discovery but a sensory journey, leaving you with memories etched in the captivating beauty of Corsica, where nature, history, and culture converge.

Before finalizing any independent travel arrangements, especially if you're doing so 12 weeks or more before your intended travel date, please check with us first to ensure your holiday has been cleared to operate.

Passports and Visas

European Passport Advice

If you are planning to travel to an EU country (except Ireland), or Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Andorra, Monaco, San Marino or Vatican City, you must meet the Schengen area rules.

Your passport must meet 2 requirements. It must be:

  • less than 10 years old on the day you enter (check the ‘date of issue’)
  • valid for at least 3 months after the day you plan to leave (check the ‘expiry date’)

For some Schengen countries your passport may need to be less than 10 years old during your whole visit, and the 3 months at the end of your visit may need to be within 10 years of your passport’s issue date.

Check both the issue date and the expiry date in your passport. If you renewed your passport early, extra months may have been added to its expiry date. This could affect the requirement for your passport to be less than 10 years old.

Non British Passport holders should consult the host country’s embassy for applicable passport and visa entry requirements.

Meals

Breakfasts are taken at the hotel with the usual continental fare along with eggs and pancakes, whereas each evening your leader will take you to a variety of characterful local restaurants where you can really sample Corsican cuisine.

When taking reservations for groups in local restaurants, it is the policy of some restaurateurs to offer one set menu, served to everyone at the table with the exception of vegetarians, vegans and gluten free. We would like to remind you that when making your holiday booking you had the option to state dietary requirements, if you didn’t do so at the time, please let us know as soon as possible so we can strive to try and meet your needs.

Lunches are not included but with the hotel being in the town centre and a stones throw from the harbour you are spoilt for choice as to where to buy a picnic.

Further Travel Advice

For further advice please visit:

You might wish to take a small bottle of antibacterial hand gel with you for times when you're unable to wash your hands.

Travel Insurance

It’s a condition of booking that you obtain adequate travel insurance, from a reputable provider, to undertake the holiday, including UK trips chiefly due to the cancellation element of cover.

The policy must cover the period from the date of booking to the last day of your trip and should include, as a minimum, cover for: medical expenses (including the consequences of a Covid positive test result), mountain rescue including helicopter rescue, death, repatriation, cancellation and curtailment and shall not have exclusion clauses limiting cover for the activities you will partake in on your trip, including altitudes reached in the holiday arrangement. It is your responsibility to check that your policy is adequate for the nature and destination of the holiday booked.

Once you have obtained your travel insurance, please provide us with the name of your travel insurer, the policy number and the insurer’s 24 hour emergency assistance number.

In the event that you fail to obtain suitable Travel Insurance we shall not be liable for any costs incurred or claims made against us due to your failure to comply with this term.

If travelling outside the UK you must carry proof of insurance with you and produce it if reasonably requested to do so by RWH Travel staff, tour leaders or suppliers. No refunds will be made should you be excluded from the walking programme through being uninsured or you being unable to demonstrate that you are insured.

Our house broker MPI should be considered for whom we are an affiliate and contact information is on our website and will be referred to in your booking confirmation.

If you are travelling to an EU country or Switzerland please also ensure that you have either an existing valid EU EHIC card (European Health Insurance Card) or a valid UK GHIC (Global Health Insurance Card). You can apply for a UK GHIC free of charge on the NHS website at https://services.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/cra/start.

EHIC & GHIC Cards

Starting January 1st, 2021, you, as a UK traveller, can continue using your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) throughout its valid five-year period, granting you access to medical assistance during your holiday until its expiry date. Be aware, though, that this coverage will no longer extend to Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, or Switzerland. In case you don't have a valid EHIC, you can apply for a new UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC), which will replace the EHIC as it gets phased out.

It's essential to emphasize that the EHIC/GHIC, while valuable, should not be regarded as a substitute for comprehensive medical or travel insurance. For your peace of mind and comprehensive coverage, considering additional insurance is highly recommended.

When you're out and about, stay aware of your surroundings. Take smart precautions with your credit cards and passport, and maybe tone down the flashy accessories. Less is more, especially when it comes to carrying cash—just enough for the day will do. Consider using a money belt for that extra layer of security. Stay alert, stay safe, and make the most of your travels!

Cultural Awareness

The primary focus of our Trust's financial support is directed towards Britain's premier walking charity, The Ramblers. They play a crucial role in advocating the benefits and significance of walking to the British public. Additionally, our Trust invites applications for small grants from local organizations in the UK that require support for walking-oriented activities. This encompasses initiatives such as establishing footpaths and bridleways, funding for the reconstruction of bridges and refurbishing huts, and bursary funding for organisations that support individuals to enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors..

For more comprehensive details, please visit the 'About' section on our website and click on the Charitable Trust link. Your choice to travel with us goes beyond a memorable vacation; it contributes to meaningful projects that have a positive impact on our community and environment.

Heart and Sole

We appreciate that we are in a fortunate position to be able to use our profits to help make a difference to people's lives. Heart & Sole is a venture managed by our office staff, whose aim is to reach the heart of the communities in the countries we visit. Through Heart & Sole, we hope to make more of a long term, direct impact to these communities, particularly in less developed countries where even a small amount goes a long way. See our website for more information and details of some of the projects we support.

Staying In Touch

Mobile Phones

Kindly share a mobile phone contact number with us. We'll utilize this solely for crucial communication pertaining to your holiday arrangements.

Ensure your mobile phone remains switched on and easily accessible when en route to the airport or during transit delays. This way, we can promptly reach you with any last-minute updates concerning your travel plans.
