After a scenic drive, you’ll board the ‘little train’ at Cricheto Pass, located at an altitude of 2,870 feet. During your train ride along the forest trail, your guide will point out the interesting plants and explain their uses.

Corsica is famous for its wild, natural and endemic vegetation, known as maquis. The scented plants, colourful flowers and maquis produce a wonderful fragrant honey with a rich aromatic taste. A visit to a Miellerie (honey bee farm) allows you to taste some delicious, local honey and hear about the farm’s other wonderful honey-based products.

The Scented Isle’s amazing abundance of plants and trees are also used in the production of essential oils, including cedarwood, citronella, juniper and lavender, to name but a few.
