Description

Get ready to hike Europe’s most difficult trail with the most impressive landscapes on the island of Corsica. During 5 days, we’ll endure the incredible GR20 route from Canaglia to Conca. Join me on this exhilarating one-of-a-kind adventure.

First, we’ll meet at Canaglia which will be the starting point of our trip. Then, we will begin this exciting but strenuous adventure. We’ll be hiking for 7 and a half to 12 hours a day with an elevation change of 1,500-3,000 meters. But this hard work will be rewarded: we’ll get to see breathtaking views of the island from high above, including sea views and peaks of over 2,000 meters.

Some of the highlights of the trip include crossing Bavella’s needles, ascending Monte Alcudina and the plateau of U Rinosu, visiting the basins of Manganellu and the granite gargoyles, among many others. You can check the itinerary below for more information.

For this trip you will need to bring a backpack, picnics, 2 liters of water, personal hygiene elements, and clothes that will protect you from the heat, wind, cold and rain. Additionally, it goes without saying that you will need to be physically fit for the challenge. Of course, I will be there to assist you every step of the way.

So, if you are ready for a exciting and rewarding trip to the famous GR20, book your trip now! I would love to guide you on this unique adventure.

And, if you’re looking for more adventures in the area, you can join me on a 3-day hike to Alta Rocca, Corsica.

I am a mountain leader based in Quenza, Corsica. I am state-certified and offer hiking and snowshoeing tours around this beautiful island. And for your added safety, I'm also a firefighter and lifeguard. I enjoy the feeling of freedom I get when in the mountains and also the humbleness that they require. The mountain is wonderful when shared!
