From Calvi: Agriate Guided Jeep Tour to Lotu and Saleccia

5. From Calvi: Agriate Guided Jeep Tour to Lotu and Saleccia

Time stops and immersion in "the attic of Corsica"! As rich in history as in vegetation, we set off to discover an extraordinary site combining maquis and beaches worthy of the Caribbean... The Agriates desert is a micro-region that is desert only in name! Planted with Mediterranean vegetation that is traditionally found in the maquis, such as holm oaks, olive trees or even heather and myrtles. The 13km of 4x4 track will offer us the possibility of admiring extraordinary points of view, of discovering the history of the site with the many mullers (pagliaghji) - small stone constructions with roofs covered with earth - which mark out the territory and which are the witnesses of intense past agro-pastoral activities, but also to meet the wild fauna populating the desert (cows, warblers, grass snakes, peregrine falcons etc…) At the arrival of the track, stop on the beaches of Lotu and Saleccia (protected natural areas), land of the Conservatoire de l'espace littoral, real paradises on earth... or rather maritime! Fine white sand beaches, clear turquoise waters, sea bream, cuttlefish and other “inhabitants”… get your masks and snorkels on!! For those who wish, it is possible to go for a "short" hike on part of the customs path between the beaches of Lotu and Saleccia. (1h15 on average).

We spent a day full of history, knowledge of the flora, the beauty of the landscape, 4x4 jolts, swimming in an idyllic place and Thierry's good humor of course. Extra lunch at the fountain relay. ThierryI contributed a lot to the wonderful day we spent. We recommend

We enjoyed this excursion between discovering the Balagne valley, the very beautiful landscapes and swimming. Our guide Virginie was very friendly and dynamic. Along the way she evoked the history of Corsica as well as its fauna and flora. Very rewarding experience.

Great walk with a guide (edmond) who knows Corsica very well and shares his love of the country with us. The pure 4x4 part is awesome and when you get to the end it was worth it.

Our guide Julien was amazing. It was a wonderful day and a nice experience with the 4x4
