Known as one of the most challenging and spectacular hiking routes in Europe, the G.R. 20 remains the experience of a lifetime and one of Corsica’s landmarks! From Calenzana (inland from Calvi) to Conca (north from Porto Vecchio) the G.R. 20 trail streches its 15 stages along rocky ridges, green highlands, glacier lakes and vast forests, offering breathtaking 360° views over the island, along a real adventure-walk. The experience of about 2 weeks, for an experienced walker, offers possibilities to spend overnights in mountain refuges.
Among the main walking trails, other less requiring tracks such as Mare a Mare or Tra Mare e Monti; they are preferred by walkers who are more into the discovery of the land and its people, as these trails lead you across inland villages – and by the way provide other accommodation in Gîtes d’Etape and / or hotels- and allow you to discover the local heritage and traditions.
