Taxis around the GR20

Taxis are an excellent way of getting to the start of the GR20: they’re fairly easy to find, and you can share the journey with other hikers you’ve met beforehand on the Internet. In fact, there’s a discussion area on our forum where you can find other people arriving in Corsica on the same day as you and share taxi fares! Here we introduce you to the taxis and shuttles that can pick you up and drop you off just a few hundred metres from the GR20 trail!
