Via Cordata above the Mediterranean in Calvi, Corsica
Duration: 4.5 hours Medium
Why we love this tour
Adventure to new heights on the cliffs of Corsica's seaside on this via cordata route suitable for all ages.
- Scale high rock walls in Corsica, "the Mountain in the Sea"
- Climb above the Mediterranean Sea
- Reach stunning views
- Fun challenge for the whole family
Corsica is called “The Mountain in the Sea” for a reason. Its beautiful rock formations stretch from coast to coast. On this via cordata, you climb the cliffs of Calvi’s shore for a seaside journey like no other.
Instead of iron steps or a steel cable, a via cordata involves using a rope to help you ascend the course. The ropes are removed after the activity in order to preserve the nature as much as possible. Although it sounds quite challenging, this fun combination of climbing and scaling is manageable for the whole family.
After your guide greets you at the meeting point in the town of Calvi, he or she drives you around 30 minutes to the course. Once fitted into a harness and helmet and given a brief overview, the cliffs of Calvi are yours to explore! Follow the guide as you scale high up on the rock wall. The ropes attach from your harness to metal rings in the rock to keep you defying gravity. The blue waves crash beneath you and birds fly around you. The entire 2-3 hours trip keeps your arms working and your eyes amazed.
It’s hard to tell if your heart pumps from the thrill of the climb or the beauty of the views. After a day of land and sea all at once, you’ll leave with a smile from experiencing “The Mountain in the Sea” for yourself.

This was a great introduction to sports climbing in Corsica. Sam our guide did a good job of looking after a mixed bunch of climbers with different skill levels. A great day was had by all. Cheers Richard
