A tougher hike than both Everest Base Camp and Inca trail and nearly as beautiful. I would say that half of it is as easy as Everest and Inca. The other half is the most interesting part were it sometimes can be really difficult. It can be steep both up and down and closer to climbing than hiking.

Done Vizzavona to Calenzana in August 2015. Stunning scenery, although probably a bit too hot in August. Toughest walk I've done so far, but well worth the pain. You need a good level of hill fitness to do the GR20. There are some sections where you need to use your hands but nothing beyond a seasoned hillwalker.

There is no adequate way to describe the GR20. It is a gruelling trail, so make sure you train for it. But it is also breathtakingly beautiful!

I did northern half of the GR20 from Calenzana to Vizzavona in July with some friends, the route was a lot harder than we had ever anticipated, I would be lying if I said it was enjoyable but it was a good sense of achievement at the end, if you want to know what the route is like go and... More

We walked the GR20 North (Calenzana to Vizzavona) in early June 2016. The time was excellent because it was not too hot and just a little snow - and the cabins/campingplaces were not too croweded. Lessons learned - own and others experiences: Always bring enough water, bring as little equipment as possible (iceaxe and crampoons were not necessary when we... More

I did first half of gr20 5 years ago. Due to the increasing popularity of the route I have found that to finish the route you now have to pre book all your camp site spaces or refuge bookings. This in itself is nonsensical as you may need to rest an extra day unplanned due to injury, fatigue, or electric... More

I did the trail from south to north using a guide and a group. I went through a local agency (Allibert Trekking). It's an intense hike and not your typical 2-3 days hike in the woods. It's mostly technical and requires a good level of fitness. We did it in 13 days. We could've done it in 10 days but... More

It is quite some time since I have visited Corse and GR20 trail but it was one of the best experiences I had. The trail leads you from Alpine like mountain rages to beautifull valleys filled with life, then across fields and pastures with almost wild horses, cows, local half wild piggs and after all that you can either go...
