The ridge path

Departing from the city center of Ajaccio, along the coast, the ridge path will take you in about 3 hours to the reliefs of the Sanguinaires islands.

It is a hiking trail accessible to all, there are no difficulties on the course. The only difficulty is the heat, which can be a problem in summer or during hot weather, because there are no shaded areas on the ridge path.
