Hiking the GR20 in Corsica

Hiking the GR20

The GR20 in Corsica is widely regarded as the most scenic and rugged of Europe’s long distance trails. Originally conceived by mountineer, Michel Fabrickant in the 1970′s the route runs diagonally north to south traversing Corsica’s mountinous interior. In all the distance is about 180km.

Early this year we joined Ian’s sister, Anne and brother-in-law, Terry to walk the southern section of the trail from Vivazzona to Conca – they walked the entire trail from Calenzana to Conca. Check out Anne’s account of their GR20 walk which includes useful info on the planning, accommodation, clothes and equipment for anyone thinking of hiking the GR20.

Coming soon: GR20 South – our experience of walking the southern section of the GR20 (as new to mountains if not walking and a reasonable amount of exercise).
