Corsica: hiking holidays launched
Self guided hiking holidays have been launched by Corsican Places – including itineraries on the rugged GR20 route, one of Europe’s toughest. Working with local experts, the tour operator is offering eight options – from leisurely or moderate to challenging or tough.
Moderate choices include seven nights on the island with four days of walking (and an optional fifth) in its north west corner. Luggage is transferred between hotels en route (3 nights half board and 4 b&b).
Seven and 14 night holidays – for fit, experienced hikers- are available on the famous GR20, which runs between the north and south along the island’s mountainous spine – and involves scrambling in some places. Hikers need to carry their own back packs and equipment. The longer option covers 13 of the trail’s 16 sections. The shorter take in six day treks on either the north or south of the route. Accommodation options, with meals, include camping, refuges, and shepherds' cabins
Prices start at £1745 a head for the moderate walking trip, and £1770 for the one week GR20 trek. All prices include including flights, transfers and route notes.
