Corsica Retreat

19th - 24th 8月 2018

Retreat into the wilderness of an island jewel.

The rugged and mountainous island of Corsica has thousands of kilometres of palm-fringed coastline and an almost unlimited choice of winding roads leading from the sparkling sea to 1,500m and back down again. It’s the perfect cycling getaway: based at two luxurious hotels in Corte and Porto Vecchio, we invite you to discover the rebellious, independent spirit of this island, its delicious cuisine and the challenging riding that is as good as anywhere in the world.

Single occupancy — ¥ 600,000 per person
Double occupancy — ¥ 495,000 per person

A perfect opportunity to stretch your legs and meet your fellow riders.

Customer Testimonials

Lots and lots of fun riding and inspirational discussions and dinners.

— Retreat Provence, 2015

It can’t have been easy to make a week away abroad so seamless with a diverse group of riders, but you made it so. The rides each day, the bike set-ups, the coffee stops, the lunches, the trips out to the Monastery and Siena were all delivered with accuracy and style. But I never felt I was on a conveyer belt, having to hit a tight schedule.

— Rider - Retreat Tuscany, 2016

FAQ

Am I strong enough for the trip?

All our trips are physically demanding, but some are harder than others. Retreats are among the most relaxing. Our guides, soigneurs and mechanics will support every rider to go beyond their usual level of riding. Each individual trip is rated for difficulty.

Can I bring a non-riding companion?

We welcome non-riding partners on our Retreats, but not on other trips.
