GR20 south

The GR 20, legendary route traced in a wild world.

Its southern section which goes from Bavella to Vizzavona offers beautiful mountain landscapes with alpine atmospheres.

Known for being one of the most difficult hiking route in Europe, the trail was traced in 1970 by Michael Fabrikant and set up two years later by the Regional Park of Corsica. In Corsica, it is called "Fra li Monti" which means "Through the Corsican Mountain" because its path fits exactly the mountainous relief from the north-west of the island to the southeast.

By following the edge of the watershed that separates the Tyrrhenian Sea from the Mediterranean Sea, the GR20 crosses the greatest massifs of Corsica. Those in the south of the island are Bavella, Alcudina and Renosu. Starting the GR20 is to live one sporty and unforgettable week, through the most beautiful landscapes of the Corsican mountain, to reach out to others and the end of oneself.

This trip follows the exact path of the GR20 South. We approach it from Bavella (instead of Conca) to allow slightly shorter stages. We bring our affairs which prevents to extend the hiking up to locations accessible by car. Depending on the group level, we can also do more: peaks and prestigious venues are nearby the GR20.
