Corsica: The GR20

Corsica GR20

4
A very good trek, with a fine set of people, fantastic scenery and very varied and often challenging walks which gave a good range of the forest, mountain, gorge and high pasture scenery along the route. There were some disappointments relating to accommodation in places, and the weather which prevented us from ascending the ridge on the last 3 days of the trek.

GR20 (too short)

The trip was very good, We were lucky in that we had great weather, fine every day, too hot when at sea level, but the temperature was great at 2000 meters. The trip was demanding, but the group was fit and coped well. We were lucky to have a great leader.

Exodus Response

We would like to thank Mr Robinson for his review of the trip. We were disappointed to read about his negative experience of the breakfasts and will pass the feedback directly to the huts and gites to ensure improvements are made. With regards to the itinerary we follow, as stated in the trip notes, we have decided not to follow the classic route all the way in order to use different gites. The huts and gites on the “official” GR20 are notoriously overcrowded and dirty, and we have therefore chosen to deviate slightly at times in order to stay in huts and gites providing a better standard of accommodation. The GR20 is really about crossing Corsica and we feel our chosen itinerary does still offer this, whilst avoiding some of the poorer huts.

A truly inspiring walk in stunning scenery. The walking is varied, the scrambling is a bit like that found on Skye and there are still opportunities to swim, relax and see a bit of Corsica.

A challenging but rewarding hike, leaving the daily stresses miles behind. Eleven days of walking is a lot of walking, but only 2 days are really tough. The leaders where friendly, encouraging and great company as were the rest of the group. Corisca is a lovely island with mountains in all directions.

We enjoyed a combination of excellent weather, a beautiful island with stunning mountains, rivers, flora and fauna, an excellent group of 14 persons who all got on with each other, two experienced and empathetic leaders and good food. We needed all the plus points because the trek is hard and some of the accommodation is basic.

GR20 Corsica September 2014

The GR20 is an amazing experience not to be missed. It is the toughest hike I've done but don't let that put you off. The scenery is incredible and the climbs are perfectly manageable if you have reasonable fitness and a head for heights. Staying in mountain huts adds to the authenticity of the experience and none of them are that basic - hot showers were available almost everywhere. Food can be a challenge if you don't like huge lumps of white bread but charcuterie and cheese are incredible. Don't expect to make friends with any Corsicans - they don't feel that way inclined!

A magical trip

5
Our GR20 trip was a very successful one. We had a group of 14 which was really a great number. Almost all of us finished the whole route. Sharing the trip with a bigger group was really uplifting and a larger group made it easier to adjust sleeping arrangements. The weather was perfect, we had no rain at all and it was sunshine every day. The group climbed all three of Corsica's highest mountains along the way, although it was a small group that climbed Cinto. Exodus organisation was like clockwork from start-to-finish. There is a strong inclusive ethos which helped the group bond as a team. Having said that everyone on the group was up to the trip.

Review of GR20 Corsica

5
I was a first time Exodus holiday participant. I committed to the Gr20 15 day Corsican trek. It exceeded all my expectations. Not only was the trek magnificent but the organisation, group of people, safety was all first class. In twenty - five years of various trips around the world - this was the best. I would have no hesitation is using Exodus again - as a matter of fact I certainly will.

We are pleased that Mr Lucas enjoyed the views and the trekking. His physical training obviously put him in good stead for the exertions of this trek. This route is widely considered among trekking experts and Grand Randonnee enthusiasts to be the toughest route in Europe and we do advise that you put the training in for it. Along with our qualified mountain guides we have had 3 staff who have completed the route, between them they have climbed Kilimanjaro, trekked peaks in Ladakh and swampy terrain of Papua New Guinea. All agreed that this route is definitely a challenge!
