Corsica GR20 South
The southern section of the GR20 is considered slightly less challenging than the northern route, however the landscapes are equally stunning. During the 5 days of hiking you will gain an appreciation for the rural communities who live in the region and the rugged wilderness that characterises the route. Your main luggage is transferred, allowing you to walk with just a day pack. From the forest of Vizzavona to the Needles of Bavella, the full GR20 experience is encapsulated in the daily views ranging from alpine meadows where sheep graze, to views to the sea as far as the distant Italian island of Elba.
