Book Description

1 April 2006 Cicerone Guides
This guidebook describes the ?classic' route to walking the GR20 on Corsica, along with high- and low-level alternatives, plus extra mountain climbs. The guide explains exactly what is involved in following the GR20, including what walkers need to carry and how difficult the route is in places. Detailed route descriptions give all the information required and there are stunning photographs to inspire you along the way. Corsica is a mountainous island in the Mediterranean and its GR20 is one of the greatest adventure treks in Europe. It is reputed to be the toughest waymarked trail of all the GR routes. An ambitious route for fit and agile walkers, it covers 190km in about two weeks as it makes a complete traverse through the high mountains, negotiating magnificent mountain terrain and following the rocky central spine of Corsica across the whole length of the island. Some sections of the route are on walking trails, others are on bare rock where some hands-on scrambling is necessary. Facilities are limited to a dozen mountain refuges and a mere handful of hotels or gites.

Review

This is an unashamable plug for Paddy Dillion's book. Its really excellent! Even the "foreigners" we met were using it- as it is both more accurate and relevent than the alternatives. If you think its too heavy, as my ultra light nut thought, just do what he did and cut it up- but don't leave for the GR20 without it." Posted on www.Outdoorsmagic.com discussion site, July 2006 'Paddy provides everything to know before tackling the route.' Strider LDWA, August 2006 This book is not only a good book, but a down to earth practical book. Paddy gives you all the pre trek beta, and doesn't hide anything. The photos in the book are excellent and leave you in no doubt of the breathtaking scenery. The recent new maps are an excellent improvement and make its usage far easier than the previous edition (impartial feedback). The Aitchison-Jones Walker's Handbook 2007

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Guide to the GR20 15 July 2010
Format:Paperback
I took this guide with me to Corsica in July 2009. You can't go wrong with Paddy Dillon and his trail descriptions. It was indispensable on those long days. The most important landmarks were noted and his recommendations never steered us wrong. I cannot recommend it more highly--a great guide for a great trail!

4.0 out of 5 stars tired and happy 27 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback
Excellent guide for walking the route, selected to accompany me from the three I had bought. I did tear out the pages I didn't need before I set out, to reduce the weight, but kept the low level options in case of bad weather. No other maps needed with this book and excellent advice on preparing for the walk. Needs updating again with regard to costs and the improvement in hotels and some other facilities (Sept 2011) although most refuges are still "spartan".

4.0 out of 5 stars GR20 South to North 30 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback
This book was super helpful for getting a general sense of elevation and distance for each day on the GR20 as well as helpful tips on where to find food and refuge along the way. It also gives a good sense of how long the route takes in reverse (south to north), which was helpful as this is the direction I went. Check out https://jamieroselevin.squarespace.com/adventure/2013/9/20/gr20-day-1 as well for a detailed trip report South to North. I suggest this direction and this book is great for planning and for once you are on the trail!
