Dramatic Mountain peaks, turquoise sea and pristine white sand.
Day 1 in Corsica and a taster of the GR20- considered to be one of the toughest hikes in Europe ( my knees would agree).
The whole trail is about 180 km long, although today, we did just a day trip segment of the Northern track, albeit damn near vertical.
The GR20 in its entirety, takes around 15 days and is usually considered as two parts: the northern part, between Calenzana and Vizzavona and the southern part, between Vizzavona and Conca.
In a word- Awesome! Sheer, craggy rock escarpments, moss carpeted emerald rainforests and monolithic waterfalls.
A must do, even if it’s just a wee portion of this grueling 15 day marathon.
