GR20 Day 8 Stage 10: Bergeries d’E Capanelle to Vizzavona

  • Time- 5 hr with rest
  • Distance 14.9km (9.25miles)
  • Elevation – 381 mtr (1250 ft) ascent, 1162 mtr (3812 ft) descent
  • Fun score
  • S-1
  • T-1

This was a relatively ‘easy’ day in terms of the path and the route. The weather was warm and sunny and the wooded areas gave some nice shade and breeze. The ascent was gradual and most of it was shaded. We left around 8.30 am and took our time. Our proposed train was due to leave Vizzavona at 17.56 and we had estimated the hike would take around 5 hours so we took it really easy.

When we reached Vizzavona we headed to one of the 3 restaurants located at the station and ordered Steak Frites and wine to celebrate our accomplishment. It was pretty sweet.

And just like that, we boarded the train and headed to Ajaccio to collect our bags, have a shower, shave my legs, trim T’s beard, and to sleep in a proper bed.
