GR20 Corsica – pre-booking of refuges now compulsory

24th March 2009 in Cicerone Office by Lois

477_srphotoRegular Cicerone author Paddy Dillon – author of our guide GR20: Corsica – has just passed on some vital information that anyone planning to walk the famous GR20 high-level route through Corsica from May this year needs to know.

In the past it has not been possible to book places at the refuges along this popular route in advance. But all this is changing from May. Any walkers wanting either to stay in the refuges or camp beside them must now book and pay in advance. You have to get the appropriate tickets before you start, carry them along the trail with you and present them at the refuges as you go along.

Full details of the scheme and how to book your accommodation along the GR20 in Corsica (online if you wish) are available on the website of the Corsican Regional Natural Park at www.parc-corse.org.

If you have any ideas for how we can get this information out, other than through the website, the blog and our regular e-newsletters, to anyone who needs to know, please email us to let us know.
