Corsica

Description

Corsica

Pozzi, Corsica destination in the Mediterranean, has good hiking possibilities. To start with, the GR20 is a challenging two weeks hike crossing the mountainous interior of the island. The GR20 is said to be the most difficult of the French Grand Randonnees, long distance hiking trails. For sure: it is very popular. Less challenging hikes take you across the island from coast to coast, passing rural areas and "maquis', dry shrub. These hikes are Mare a Mare Nord, Centre, Sud, and Mare e Monti.

 

A rewarding hiking destination is Li Pozzi, a mountain range not far from the GR20 in the south of the island.
