Lake Nino, paradise lost

Lake Nino, paradise lost

On the route of the mythical GR20, Lake Nino, located in the mountains, offers an invigorating walking getaway.

Lake Nino, the second largest lake in Corsica, has an exceptional setting for enjoying a hike or horse-riding experience.

Starting near Vergio Pass, not far from the forest house of Popaggia, take the marked trail to climb toward the Valdoniello forest until reaching the Bocca a Stazzona. After two-and-a-half hours walking, you will discover the vastness of Lake Nino and its pozzines (water wells, where it is forbidden to tread) where wild horses graze. Pass under the Capu a u Tozzu (viewpoint) to then join the Col de Saint-Pierre. Back on the marked path, make your way to the starting point.

At about 14 km and six hours of walking, this tour requires good physical condition and the preparation of a small backpack that includes a first-aid kit.
