Cinque Terre Trekking & Wine Tour. Join our small group of walkers to cross this magic land shared between the mountain and the ocean

On this tour we share 7 days and 6 nights inside the Natural Reserve Parco Nazionale delle Cinque Terre. You can join us as a single, a couple or as a small group of friends. Born from the experience of the past years with guests from all over the world and our passion for walking, this tour is an experience for a selected group of maximum 12 people.

The base for the week of the Cinque Terre Trekking is the small fishing village of Riomaggiore. Each day we walk a section of the famous path that crosses the area from South to North along the coast of Liguria. To connect the various paths we use private minivans but also the fast local train that in a few minutes connects the villages of the Cinque Terre.

Dates: April 18th – 24th, 2021 (7 days, 6 nights)

FAQ

Can you pick us up/ drop off in Florence/Rome/etc …?

Yes of course. We will provide you, before the booking, a specific quote for this extra service.

Is this trekking too hard for me?

This is an easy-intermediate trek for everyone with some very steep sections made of steps and others where we pass along really narrow tracks where you must have attention. We will stop as many times as you would like to explain about the area, its flora and fauna, to relax and to take pictures in the best spots. Be prepared to walk for 2-5 hours each day.

Which kind of equipment should I bring with me?

Trekking boots or shoes (as you are more comfortable), sunglasses, sunscreen, hat, a small backpack, a water bottle or a camel bag, an eventual k-way if the weather will be windy, and a swimming suit.

I have to bring all the luggage with me during the day?

No because the hotel will be the same for all the week. We will move fast by train to reach the starting point.
