GR20 North-South or South-North


Posted: Wed, Apr 27, 2011, 12:05


My friend and I are planning to do the GR20 in early/mid June and and are wondering what would be the best place to start, south or north.
We are both based in Sardinia right now, so it makes sense that we begin in the south. We have read that 90% of trekkers do the trail north-south. Anyone know why? Any advice.

We're also thinking about accommodation - whether it is wise to take a tent just in case refuges are all booked up.
