There are five main itineraries proposed by the regional national park.

It is broken down into 10 stages of 4 to 7 hours (10 days), with a maximum altitude of 1 153 m, it progresses vertically in relation to the sea and crosses the Balagne. It offers some magnificent viewpoints over the sea and mountains and particularly dominates two Unesco conservation areas: the Scandola reserve and the gulf of Porto. It oten follows the impressive gorges of the Spelunca before descending to Cargese through the mountains. The shelters are situated successively at Calenzana, Bonifatu, Tuarelli, Galeria, Girolata, Ota, Evisa, Marignana, Revinda E Case and Cargèse.
