Hello

I think to do the GR-20 September and would love to help forum members on some questions: are mid-late September might be too late in terms of weather? "; Do I have to book cabins? Weight considerations, I prefer not to lug a tent, is it essential?; Is problematic, it is dangerous to do the trail alone; I read that was considered relatively difficult, but assuming that the body will get used to after a few days, load is reasonable fitness should- (Hebrew in Nepal, New Zealand, TMB and didn't, but long tracks in recent years).

Thank you

About the tent I'd say the answer is "no". Equal to confirm with the rafiog before you leave, but most have an option to rent a tent for the night. Assuming a place in rafiog, I guess I will also tent available.

Thanks a lot! I saw the reports and previous threads and still wanted to hear-especially to interest major tent and walk alone reports who were on the trail in recent years.

I understand that it is impossible to know for sure how long the rafiog supposed to be open, but from what I've read in a big way until the end of September are usually not staffed? It's critical to me not only in terms of accommodation (i.e. assuming you take either tent) but also in terms of food production. If I'm walking alone with tent and need to carry food and equipment for cooking-I'm afraid it may be too much.

Thanks again for the help:)

Who doesn't want to carry a heavy bag with tent, food and cooking equipment, didn't get into orbit at the end of September.
The simple solution would be to leave in mid-September and finish the track until late September.
This You can't go in the off-season when unmanned sharpiogy and carrying a backpack is easy.
Or 25 kg on his back in one of the hardest routes in Europe, or 8 kg on his back and a smile.
Your choice.

In terms of weather, it is possible to walk the trail in October. That's not the problem.

Of course, I completely agree. Anyway, I have no intention to leave at the end of September. The port range is from the beginning of the month to the Center so that the latest finish at the end of September.

Then you have a problem and don't feel alone on the trail because there will be more people at the same time.
Start from the North and slowly move along according to 16 days.

I completed the GR-20 two weeks ago (10-24 September 2015, a total of 15 days, from North to South), and now I can answer the questions that plagued me-hopefully it might help to go:

The path still full of people, but not too busy. In my opinion, there is no need to carry a tent and there is no need to reserve a seat. There were a few times where I arrived at the cabin and this afternoon was, but even then there is no problem to rent one of the many she already established around the cabin.

There is no problem to walk on for the day, meeting a lot of people coming from both directions, and the cabins provide a great social experience to me. You should take into account the early days especially (but also later in the southern part) has several technical sections not simple, that there are those who would prefer being near other travelers to be safe, but otherwise, as long as the weather is good, slow and very careful should suffice.

In terms of physical fitness is required, as many come before, it's not a course suitable for those who do not experience similar trips in the past, but I don't need him experience or special physical fitness. The body gets used to the effort and possible and enjoyable even for those who do not "." or experience. Of course that comes with more experience and better fitness experience can be more enjoyable. Another important focus is a known weight in case you can stock up on food, water and other things, there is no need to carry a tent or stated a mat, and at least in September have warm clothing. Therefore, we recommend that you rely on minimum.

Overall I had a great experience and is highly recommended!

I'm glad you enjoy the trail.
Just about warm clothing-I guess that depends on the year. I don't know much on the weather in the mountains in Corsica, but before anyone reads the comment and went for a stroll in shorts and a t-shirt, you should check the forecast in the same season. I believe I can also be cold and rainy days there in September.

You're right, of course. Even when I was on for some days with rain, wind and temperature. Definitely need warm clothing (long sleeves, a raincoat, wind etc.)-I mean, there's probably needed, multiple layers as in higher paths or winter months. Anyway, you should check the forecast time.

Congratulations to the end, and you have a few questions:

1. What is the minimum number of days required to complete for

2. If you travel with a tent?

2. do the cabins where you can rent a tent (all or some) also provide equipment (I, 15)?

4. What is the frequency of the places where you can obtain food?

5. can you tell us how you got for how a return

Thank you!

1. I met a few that made him ״רצים״ in 4-7 days, but it's not just hiking.
If you are quick (and know how to deal with difficult terrain, boulders, degrades, skrmbling) and in good shape, it is possible to do it in 10 days if weather comfortable, but I wouldn't recommend it.

2. I'd say one-third of the visitors came with a tent. Not all travelers know what they stand for to these, tell me who arrived with 25 kilos, and sent by mail (Europe) back 6 after you understand what they're dealing with, it was also one that came with 25 and stayed with 25.0. On average there are quite a few with tents, tarphim. (most places to build wind-exposed tents, less pleasant with Tharp?), and I even saw a guy came with a hammock.

3. a tent and I think I have all the straw huts that stopped them, if I go out for a walk again or bring a tent is easy, with someone else, then maybe try to sleep on the ground instead of being limited by the huts, or give up the tent at all, with easy and sleeping in huts.
Tent cabins, ready for action, should establish, it's pretty comfortable.

4. in the first half of the northern part, not quite half the bergeries and in the southern part there almost every day, which can normally buy beer/cheese/bread/sandwich (?). All bthecot be a nutritious meal, snacks, drinks aren't cheap, but supplies at a reasonable price where there. Search in Google, there are summaries of where can I buy. Now I felt I was missing something (although lunch/breakfast at the Florida primary points and stop buying bthecot or meal or things made with food in the kitchen.

5. I can't nice flight path. It wasn't cheap, and should return to the starting point for the flight. I think it's better to take a ferry (it also has experience in boats at night in mid-September the frequency of ferries, probably need to plan in advance).

Someone already answer the questions that have been asked by local, then just complete the brief: the cabins provide mattresses and the tents there to them. Sleeping bag needs anyway to get (there are no cabins and tents). I think there were tents beside each cabin, in most cases they have been built, and not individual cases, can request (and pay) for cabin tent is folded and build it.
-Cost of interest for single traveller the option of sleeping in tents of the leaves is more expensive than cabin accommodation (tent + 11 euros for 7 euros per person-total 18 euros, while cabin lodging costs 14 euros only). Not a big difference, but it is more or less equivalent to a can of beer a day:-)
If you decide not to carry a tent, it is a good idea to obtain drugs for prevention and treatment of Bed bugs-bites the cooties bite still move through.
-Your back off the trail: I flew to Nice and took another flight to Calvi, located very close to the trailhead on the north side (a 15-minute drive by taxi). The track ends in the South is in Conca, and to come back to public transportation-bus Calvi and/or not fast-train but in total relaxation. If arrival in Corsica is designed only for the GR-20 makes sense to fly to Calvi and Figari back from the airport is relatively close to the end of the runway. If you have time and want to see and do more things in Corsica, it doesn't really matter to me, and actually have an advantage to come back from one of the airports in the North that allow a way to visit other places. On the question of whether to fly or take a ferry to Corsica-need to check cost differentials and compare the times of each stock option at the time of the planned trip specific. There are advantages to each of these options and we should choose between them depending on what is most appropriate to the needs and specific schedule of the trip.

There are no private rooms, accommodations are cabins on only one Dormitory room, often with two or three berths and around 20-30 mattresses that are attached to each other. This is not the place to expect privacy. In a small number of places along the trail can not sleep in, then you can find rooms to a limited number of people, and there's even one or two of them probably have private rooms.
