Tour Corsica

Up and down mountains, with beautiful views everywhere

Travelogue Tour Corsica with 34 photos
Tour of Corsica, where along the coast still some 70 Genovese towers remain. Over cities like Calvi, Corte and Bonifacio, which sits on top of white limestone rocks, hover citadels. The landscape is impressive everywhere, with beautiful canyons, like Gorges de l'Asco and Gorges de la Restonica, and the red rocks of the calanches. Along the coast the sea pounds rocks and cliffs, in the inland cows sleep on the road. 34 photos.

Climbing Mont Blanc via Grand Couloir

Don't look, just keep going...

Travelogue Climbing Mont Blanc via Grand Couloir with 35 photos
First the Col du Tour is climbed to get acclimatized: snow bridges and jumping over glacier rifts. And then the climbing of Mont Blanc, by way of the dangerous Grand Couloir to the Goûter Hut and over a narrow snow ridge along chilling abysses to Les Bosses. When the trail skimps a wide glacier fissure, the motto is: don't look, just keep going... 35 photos.
