Outdoor activities and nature in Corsica
Live your passions to the full in an overwhelmingly beautiful natural environment.
Created around 10 years ago, kitesurfing is a water sport where a surfboard is continuously pulled along by a flying kite. It is a sport that is attracting more and more participants, especially those who are in search of a few thrills.
Discovery, adventure, conviviality, cooperation, stress management and pushing oneself to the limit. These are the core values of this young company that specialises in outdoor sports. Its founders have turned their passion into a business. From the summit of the Paglia Orba to the beach at Saleccia, they can expertly adapt to the needs of their client, whatever level of experience they may have.
The objective of our tours is to make the splendour of the landscapes and the diversity of our villages accessible to all and to allow our walkers to experience and appreciate our rural way of life for a few days, seeing Corsica from the inside….
Altre Cime is, above all, a story about passions and passionate people. Passion for the mountains and for the lands of Corsica in particular, and all their many facets: people, culture, heritage…
Né au bord de la Méditerranée, la mer me passionne depuis ma plus tendre enfance. Brevet d'Etat de plongée sous-marine depuis 20 ans avec plus de 5 000 plongées à mon actif, j'ai exploré les fonds marins en Corse, notamment pour des missions scientifiques (Station de recherche océanographique de Calvi et Université de Corse). Titulaire d'un diplôme d'animateur en biologie marine, je partage volontiers ma passion et mes connaissances sur la faune et flore sous-marine avec tous les amateurs de plongée qu’ils soient néophytes ou expérimentés.
Discover the authentic Corsica, with its magnificent landscapes, its heritage, its artisan crafts, its majestic villages, taste its local products and set off in search of some passionate men and women. That is the concept behind Corse Balades et Découvertes!
As a former employee of the Corsican Natural Regional Park (refuge keeper on the GR20 route), I founded Rêves de Cimes in 2006. With 5 years of experience gained with the Corse Rand’eau association, specialists in outdoor activities, I decided to set up my own company in order to develop a range of activities designed to help people discover Corsica in a different way. I have been involved with tourism and outdoor sports now for 15 years and my enthusiasm is as keen as ever.
Where does your passion for plants come from ?
I am originally from Le Cruzzini, a region of Corsica that is very wild and proud of that fact. It bears the name of the crystal clear river that runs through it and is home to the famous native species of Corsican trout (the Macrostigma). As a child, I would spend hours observing nature, the flora and fauna, but most of all fishing.
