Corsica - GR20 Trekking

Discover the breathtaking beauty of Corsica through the legendary GR20 trek, a thrilling adventure that takes you through rugged landscapes, pristine wilderness, and charming villages. This iconic 180-kilometer trail winds its way through the heart of the island, offering hikers an unparalleled experience of nature's wonders.

Embark on an unforgettable journey as you traverse lush forests, challenging rocky terrains, and awe-inspiring mountain passes. Along the way, you'll be captivated by stunning vistas of snow-capped peaks, crystal-clear alpine lakes, and cascading waterfalls. Corsica's diverse flora and fauna provide a captivating backdrop, offering glimpses of rare plant species and elusive wildlife.

The GR20 trek is a testament to both physical endurance and natural beauty. With a mix of challenging ascents and descents, this adventure is perfect for seasoned hikers seeking an adrenaline rush. While the trek demands determination, the rewards are immense – panoramic views that stretch as far as the eye can see.

Immerse yourself in the local culture as you pass through charming mountain villages, where warm hospitality and authentic Corsican cuisine await. The best months to undertake this unforgettable journey are June and September, when the weather is mild and the trails are less crowded, allowing you to fully savor the tranquility and grandeur of the surroundings.

A full traverse of the GR20 takes around two weeks. Many groups split the trip into two - doing the Northern half and the Southern half at different times. You can also undertake a "highlights" trip doing the best few days of each segment. Your trip is tailored to your needs - we can lighten bags with luggage transfers and by using in-situ tents in the mountains. You can stay in comfortable (or even luxurious) hotels at various points.

Whether you're an experienced trekker or an outdoor enthusiast looking for a life-changing experience, the GR20 trek in Corsica promises an exhilarating adventure that will leave you with memories to last a lifetime. Are you ready to conquer the challenge and embrace the awe-inspiring beauty of Corsica's wilderness?
