This lake is a remote jewel away from the tourist paths
Only a stone’s throw from the much-visited Capitello lake can be found Goria lake, a wonderful mountain lake which, with a bit of luck, you will be able to enjoy in complete solitude. However the path to this idyllically situated spot requires quite a lot of effort: the path over the Brèche de Goria is very steep added to which the couloir is usually covered in snow right into summer.
Location: Corte, 396m, train station on the Bastia – Ponte Leccia – Ajaccio line.
Starting point: Bergerie de Grottelle, 1370m, at the end of the road into the Restonica valley (15km from Corte).
Height difference: just under 1100m.
Grade: long, demanding mountain walk which requires good fitness as well as surefootedness and a lack of vertigo (some scrambling (I), route finding from the Goria notch not always clear). Only to be reommended in absolutely stable weather conditions, at the earliest from June/July onwards.
Refreshment and accommodation: bar at the Bergerie de Grottelle, restaurants, hotels und campsites on the road through the Restonica valley and in Corte.
Alternatives: from the Brèche de Goria there’s an ascent possible to the western summit of Pic Lombarduccio, 2261m (20 mins.). Also a circular walk: outward path (turn-off at the Bergerie de Melo) or return via the Bocca di u Chiostru, 2147m.
Map: IGN 4251 OT (1:25.000).
