Today you will set off from Calacuccia in Haute-Corse on the GR20 stage to the "Ciottulu a i Mori" refuge at the foot of the legendary peak of Paglia Orba. You will walk along a beautiful ridge taking you up to Capu de Guagnarola at 1,922 m (6,305 ft). Enjoy magnificent views of the Fango valley and the northern face of the “Grande Barrière” or backbone of Corsica.
During the morning, in the peace and quiet of this beautiful landscape and just below the Radule sheepfolds, a sophrology break will help you be mindful of the present moment. You will be able to connect with all five of your senses to feel the benefits of nature.
DAY 3: CIOTTULU A I MORI REFUGE - TIGHJETTU REFUGE
About 6 hours walking time - Night in a refuge - 250 m (820 ft) ascent / 585 m (1,920 ft) descent
Today you will set off on a beautiful section of the GR20. You will walk in the shade of hundred-year-old pines, down a rocky outcrop leading to the Ballone sheepfold and then to the Tighjettu refuge, where you will spend the night.
During the day, you will discover one of the most beautiful and unknown lakes on the island, Paglia Orba lake, as well as the most beautiful summit of Corsica. A magical, timeless place.

About 7 hours walking time - Night in a refuge - 800 m (2,625 ft) ascent / 800 m (2,625 ft) descent
This unusual day off the beaten track will be devoted to the discovery of Capu Ucellu, a peak reaching 2,182 m (7,160 ft) above sea level. You will climb up to the top in a rocky landscape of flamboyant colours. The summit offers stunning views of the eastern face of Paglia Orba, the Serra Pianella pass, the Pointe Lejosne and the Pointe des Deux Sœurs, one of the top mountaineering spots on the island.

Set out on this unusual hike, off the trail, on a forgotten portion of the first GR20 route created 50 years ago.

From there, you can look down on magnificent views of the Filosorma valley, the great Corsican peaks and the surrounding bays.

After a stop to see the Carozzu refuge, where a famous film was shot, you will walk on down to the Auberge de Bonifato in the shade of an ancient forest. Your stay will end with a relaxing, customised massage, lulled by the gentle sounds of a mountain stream, in which you can also bathe and soothe your tired feet.
