It is difficult to think of Corsica without thinking of the famous GR20, and therefore hiking.
Objectif Nature is an organisation which gives visitors the chance to explore the Island of Beauty safely and in the company of a guide so that they may take full advantage of the scenery as well as the legends attached to it.
Walks take place every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday and are divided into two categories: those designed for all levels (and which will take you off in search of beautiful valleys and lakes) and those aimed at more athletic visitors (routes will take you to high-altitude lakes and the finest peaks of Corsica).
The mere mention of the principle routes will get you dreaming: GR20 North, the High Level Route (which is recommended for hardened hikers, giving them the opportunity to cross the island along its spine), GR South (7 days exploring lakes of glacial origin, untimely névés and the pozzines between Vizzavona and Porto-Vecchio), Mare a Mare North (a route which runs between the two seas, the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Mediterranean sea, crossing the mountainous massifs of the Haute-Corse region), Mare a Mare South (this walk is suitable for all and runs from Porto-Vecchio to Propriano, taking several days allowing for baggage transportation), the Randonnée rafraîchissante ('Refreshing walk' - 7 days and 6 nights exploring the Vallée Sauvage (?Wild Valley')), and the Traversée fantastique ('Magnificent crossing' - an appealing concept which offers visitors the opportunity to discover a different landscape every day).
