Corsica: Festimonti 2015

The first thing you put in your suitcase are hiking boots. Or, even before luggage, you put your beloved two-wheels in your car. Are you an enthusiast of outdoor sports and are you looking for an opportunity to practice them? In this case, we have a good idea for you: from September 18 to 20, in Bocognano, Corsica, the 2015 edition of Festimonti will take place.

 

The festival

Festimonti is the most important mountain festival of Corsica. A three-days event fully dedicated to hiking, mountain biking, trail rides, basic courses of canyoning and hang-gliding. In addition to sports, Festimonti 2015 will be an opportunity to meet and to debate on various issues concerning mountains and nature. In the past editions, there was a film review with films dedicated to mountain.

 

How to get there

Bocognano is a small town located in the middle of Corsica, surrounded by the green and high mountains of the island of beauty. The most important nearby tourist port is Ajaccio. To get there from Ajaccio, you only need to take the N193 road towards north and follow the road signs to Bocognano. The entire journey will take about three-quarters of an hour by car.
