It’s no surprise that the GR20 South was picked as an adventure for the RAF this summer. Last week we welcomed a small guided group of 6, whose tailor made trip started at Ajaccio airport and finished in Figari, keeping time on the trail to a max.
Vizzavona - Col de Verde - Usciolu - Crocci - Bavella - Conca
Although we offer this itinerary with luggage assistance, part of the challenge was for everyone to carry a heavy rucksack, over 20kg, making it significantly more of a challenge to this group of RAF elite.
In recent seasons, we have seen an increase in requests for the GR20 as a tough terrain for professional groups, as well as top sports teams, and top charity challenges. It is a great way of bringing people out of their comfort zone, testing the communication and trust amongst the group, it can be hugely motivating and will certainly bring out everyone’s strengths and weaknesses.
After the trek, the group stayed for two nights in Porto Vechio, enjoying the 3 star hotel Le Shegara. This hotel has excellent firm mattresses and soft bedding, just what you need after time on the trail, and there is a heated infinity swimming pool, with a panoramic sea view. The hotel is situated just 150m from the port and 10 minutes walk away from the old town of Porto Vecchio.
