ROW Sea Kayak Adventures "Compelling Corsica" Awarded a Spot on National Geographic Traveler Magazine's 2015 Tours of a Lifetime

New adventure trip launched this year exploring Corsica by kayak and foot gets a spot on National Geographic's Tours of the Lifetime list.

Compelling Corsica, a unique sea kayaking and mountain hiking adventure vacation from ROW Sea Kayak Adventures, was named one of National Geographic Traveler magazine's 2015 Tours of the Lifetime. This award from National Geographic Traveler is the first for ROW Sea Kayak Adventures.

The announcement from National Geographic released April 9, 2015 states "The 50 best guided tours selected this year offer authentic travel experiences that are sure to leave participants engaged and ensconced in culture."

Now in it's 10th year, the 2015 list features 50 of the world's best-guided trips chosen by the editors of National Geographic Traveler. Norie Quintos, acting editor in chief of National Geographic Traveler magazine comments "… the types of immersive and experiential trips have only multiplied; tours are going farther and deeper than ever before."

The list and details about the trips can be viewed in National Geographic Traveler magazine's May 2015 issue and online at

Compelling Corsica combines sea kayaking in the deep blue waters of the island, exploring coves and sea caves in the Gulf of Porto, and trekking a segment of the Grande Randonnée 20 (GR20), a legendary long-distance trail that runs north-south along Corsica's granite spine, all fueled by local charcuterie, sheep-milk cheeses, and wine. The September departure will be led by ROW Sea Kayak Adventures co-owner Peter Grubb.

Grubb comments: "We are honored to have our fabulous Corsica adventure chosen by National Geographic Traveler as a ‘Tour of a Lifetime.' This validates the design process we orchestrate when developing new tours. We are eager to share the wild island of Corsica, a relatively unknown destination in France that I personally scouted, and to do it in a way that blends meaningful and authentic cultural interchange with active adventure."
