GT20 - The Itinerary

The entire route includes several stages that will cross Corsica from North to South, starting from Bastia following roads that take you to Bonifacio, passing through the vibrant centre of the island of beauty.

The GT20 proposes a route of around 600 km for you to travel coast to coast across the island discovering the interior and its villages. On Monday 5th August 2019 the GT20 was inaugurated at the Col de Vergio, the highest point of the route at an altitude of 1464 metres, and connected to the famous hiking GR20.

The route can be done on traditional road bikes if you have your climbing legs, but also by electric-assisted bicycles (e-bikes). Thanks to the charging stations located along the route, you can recharge your battery free of charge while you enjoy a lunch, an activity or just a break. Some stages also allow you to join the famous GR20 route.

For tailor-made trips, Europe Active, based near Bastia, has set up an offer adapted to the GT20 and Corsica. Over the last few years, we have noticed an increasing demand for e-bike trips in Corsica. An initiative such as the Grande Traversée, created by the Corsican Tourist Board, is perfectly in line with the new ways of using bicycles on our island with steep climbs that need those legs !
