Corsica’s varied terrain lends itself to a range of intrepid methods to cross it. At its heart, the island hides a complex of valleys and canyons that can be explored by climbing, trekking and swimming. While being able to swim is required, local canyoning companies boast high-level expertise to make even the trickiest of canyons accessible to all. This is thanks to a mix of adrenaline-infused dives, toboggans and Tyrolean traverses. The Baracci Canyon, near Propriano, is ideal for beginners as young as seven.
