Hello,

Due to the last minute we think out next week.

Whether the route is recommended at this time? (August) wouldn't it be hot? Do not lose the beauty of the trail? (Rashes, streams, etc.) Or that would be too busy?

Too hear about the estimated cost, assuming only old tent and buying meals, only basic products (of course it already flight screwed because we're having a moment to calm down).

If there are other more recommended continuous trip for two weeks then we will be happy to hear that we prefer to go to a destination where we don't waste time on the road.

Thanks,.

And sorry if it was opening a new discussion just didn't know what to attach.

August high season-need to check imports or to carry a tent and equipment accordingly.
The fit? Bill harder.

Our fitness in order that I'm less worried.

The question is whether or not it is better to save a trek, I read that August (like here), pretty hot there, and miss snow and blooming.

Is it still worth or better to search for a destination more attractive this time of year.

No problem. Just take in equipment (tents, k. MAT) that you are in season and most of the cabins are filled.
Better to start in the South if you don't climax. The beginning of the North is very difficult and the first ascent from the North exposed to Sun, water warrior. Take plenty of water.

Sorry to dig it again, but according to response "insanely hot"

I repeat the question if not better target another.

I just thought maybe for Bulgaria or Romania, which sucks there is I can't build one route would require.

Listen too if you go to the gr20 about what if we sleep only in the tent and buy meals except basic things.

The time allotted each week for 2 weeks (students).

Thank you.

And another question, I'm not so between flights and therefore I'm not sure if the price is expensive because of the last minute or it this season.

As I remember four years ago, the cost of the tent was 5 or 6 euros per night. I'm not sure if it's the person or tent. I imagine the GR20 's on-site will be listing prices.
I bought meals at the time, so 10-20 euros per night. I guess buying cans, bread and cheese each cabin is less than 10 euros. But I'm not sure about that.
I'm sorry I don't have a tip about heat.

Insanely hot applies only to climb to the first cabin. The heat is unavoidable (a) forms a Proton very low altitude in the area fully exposed for quite some time.
Once you reach cruising altitude, no heat issues. Not just August is considered peak season at this track. If it was, people wouldn't come to Corsica.
The GR20 can be very cheap route who sleeps in a tent and cooking for himself. Issue 10-20 euro per day per person.
The price of flights to Nice is in August. -Prieriot companies. It's summer vacation and prices. If you find a flight at $ 600 you need to grab it.

August is considered peak season so if you don't mind sharing the track with other travelers, so it's time.

About the heat/rain days averages, see the website: http://www.worldweatheronline.com/Monte-weather averages/Corse/FR.aspx

To summarize 25? 30 and 20 night around a height of 0, meaning mountains of 2000 approximately 10 degrees and raining on average 5 days in August.

Anyway like all the high mountains, there's a matter of luck and can rain/snow in August too serious.

About the beauty of the course, will lose something but also make something because each season has a different rashes and different weather stability.

Thank you for your replies,

I just wanted to ask about ferries, is it better to buy tickets in advance or buy instead?

And if you can buy the book of cicerone in bastia somewhere?

If not, I'd like to ask someone and give him a new book (if I buy from ebay it comes too late, but I rather tell you get).

Thank you very much.

I recommend you ffrandonnee's book. The maps that really fantastic, and much more. You can order a digital copy, then print the map (if you want paper copies). Besides, I'm pretty sure you can find it in shops in Bastia (if you prefer a physical copy though).
Cicerone's book also you can order a digital copy and get it right. I don't think you can find easily in Corsica. But maybe I'm wrong.
