Come and join us for an 11 day magical trip to the island of Corsica. We will walk for 6 days along the famous and spectacular GR20, staying and eating in mountain refuges and finishing at Calvi for 2 days of RnR on the beach. Dates; 19 - 29/09/24 Cost - 1215€ - 950€ ( Depending upon the numbers in the group, and if you want to choose your own transport to Corsica and end of trek accomodation).
The GR20 trek in Corsica is a well known long distance hiking trail, which takes 14 days to complete if you do it all at once. We are doing the last 6 days which includes some of its most spectacular routes from Col de Vergio to Calenzana. Expect waterfalls, lakes, hot trails, beautiful scenery and sociable refuges, excellent beaches and great wines!
What to Wear
Corsica is hot, and sometimes stormy, so please pack walking clothes for all weathers. The terrain is also rugged and stony so you definitely need above ankle walking boots. This is a 6 day hike, and we will be staying at the refuges and eating evening meal and breakfast with them to try and keep our rucsac weight to a minimum. Definitely bring your swimsuit, Corsica has some of the best wild swimming spots in the world. Oh and something to wear in Calvi at the end of the trip.
Where to Meet
The Trek starts with a pre-departure meet up on 19/09/24, at Maison de la Source, Gréolières. There are airport pick ups available on this day if your arrival is before 16hrs. We depart for Nice Port at 7am the next morning in the minibus. We return to Nice port on Sunday the 29/09/24 at 17hrs. You will be dropped off at the airport, train station or return to Maison de la Source if you wish. Please let us know your return journey plans.
