From Calvi: Agriate Guided Jeep Tour to Lotu and Saleccia

7. 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).

I had a wonderful day touring cillages in the mountains overlooking Calvi. Our driver was kind and considerate and a very careful driver. It was also fun to share the experience with a small group of 6 people. I felt safe in the van with the windows open and fresh air blowing through. The information provided provided was also excellent, including, apart from hisptry, information about Corsican plants, bees and other agriculture.

The guide Capucine was really nice and her colleague Damien too. A real pleasure to share this moment with them. The journey itself is rather calm, there is little off-roading. Several stops allow you to punctuate the journey and take photos. The stop in the natural swimming pool is magnificent! We highly recommend

The snorkeling tour was a great way to end our vacation. After a short, rapid boat ride, we stopped at a reef and had over an hour to observe the most diverse fish and sea creatures. We would definitely do it again and recommend it!

very good off road driver. Comfortable 4x4 car. Driver was also a guide and gave a tour more personal touch.

Great gear. We had good visibility with a great boat to a nice dive site. Excellent!
