I am thinking of going to Corsica next summer for about 10 days for hiking (late August). Am I right in thinking that this is the hottest time of the year and the time least likely to get rain? That’s what I want! I have no problems trekking in 30+ degree heat but cold and rain irritates me immensely.

I am aware of the GR20 trail, but that’s a bit overkill. I prefer long day hikes (6-8 hours+), preferably with lots of uphill sections, but I prefer to do it from a single base so I don’t have to lug my main backpack + tent + stove + … around with me…

QUESTIONS:
1. What is the best place to base myself in Corsica for hiking? Preferably with a variety of long day hikes. I am prepared to camp & rough it.
2. I will be travelling alone so would prefer somewhere hostel-like to meet other travellers. Corsica seems to have few hostels!

Cheers for any info!
