Tavignanu gorges

The Tavignano valley is one of Corsica’s most beautiful mountain valleys. A deep gorge with a multitude of bathing pools surrounded and protected by rocks awaits you. We will follow a old mule track which steadily climbs the steep left bank of the river across a bare hillside scarred with the remains of old farming terraces. Then, the gorge proper begins and the scenery becomes wilder, with rock faces surging up on each. Passing through patches of dense maquis interspersed with evergreen oak and chestnut trees, we gradually rejoin the river, crossed at the “Passerelle de Russulinu” footbridge after around 2h30. Upstream from the bridge, a small creek offers a shady spot where we can stop for a dip in the pools
