Corsica is an island in the Mediterranean Sea and it belongs to France. It is very mountainous
with 21 peaks higher than 2000m. The inland is, taken into account that this is Central
Europe, quite deserted and pristine.

For this trip, we followed the long­ distance hiking trail
Mare­a­Mare North from Moriani Plage on the East Coast to Porto on the West coast. We did
this in four days, which was quite an effort. Except from the city of Corte, it is kind of difficult to
find accommodation and food supplies along the way, at least, if you tackle the route in May,
which is what we did. This is why we decided to go self­ supported, carrying tents, stove and
food with us.
