Visiting Corsica is like travelling back in time: everything is simpler, purer, more flavourful.

Butterfield & Robinson—the world’s premier active travel company—returns to Corsica in 2014, re-introducing a Corsica Walking trip that allows you to find the perfect pace to traverse the island the Greeks called "the beautiful."
B&R's new Corsica Walking trip offers the perfect pace to traverse the island’s hills and take in a culture that’s not quite Italian, not quite French, but entirely B&R.
"Visiting Corsica is like travelling back in time: everything is simpler, purer, more flavourful," says B&R Trip Designer and resident Corsican Marya Dumont. "Life is sweet and intense, slow and gentle. But come with caution: like me, you too might find yourself so enthralled, you never leave!"
Known to the Greeks as Kalliste, meaning "the beautiful," Corsica’s granite peaks and ancient oak trees have attracted wave after wave of conquests and curious onlookers. From the Phoenicians and Greeks to the Genoese and French, each has landed, lapped on the shores and left traces of their culture behind, creating a rich cultural tapestry to complement Corsica’s wild and beautiful landscapes.
Butterfield & Robinson—the world’s premier active travel company—designs incredible journeys to the world’s most amazing places. Crafted from the finest ingredients (exceptional lodgings, incomparable access, stellar wines and food, experienced guides and more than a few secrets), B&R trips combine adventure with unparalleled cultural immersion in the world’s greatest destinations.
