Italy is one of the most popular travel destinations in Europe, if not in the world. The ancient culture, the picturesque landscape, the delicious cuisine and the charming people make Italy an almost magical place.
There aren’t many countries with the diversity and regional differences that Italy has. On a walking or hiking tour in Italy, you'll be able to get to the heart Italy's natural beauty.
Hike with all your senses through the breathtaking mountains of South Tyrol, take a refreshing dip in the cool Lake Garda after a hot day of hiking, climb the beautiful Italian Alps, explore the picturesque Friuli-Venezia Giulia, taste the fantastic cuisine of Piedmont or relax on a white sandy beach in southern and central Italy!
The Lake Garda region offers a colourful mix of landscapes, from the South Tyrolean Alps to the vineyards of small, idyllic towns.
The Lake Garda region is a place where angular rocks give way to soft, lush green meadows and the crystal clear mountain lakes become tranquil rivers.
Travel through northern Italy and experience the change from the rugged Alps to the typical Mediterranean flair!
Bordering France and Switzerland, Piedmont is known for its delicious food and wine. Located in the northwest of Italy, this region fascinates with a picturesque backdrop. Broad valleys and rolling vineyards open up, framed by the highest peaks and glaciers in the Alps. But nature is not the only attraction.
A walking tour through the land of slow food in a place where cooking a dish is celebrated with hours of dedication and love, where you appreciate dinner with the right wine, where the blossoming rice fields lie at your feet and the romantic vineyards take your breath away during our Piedmont tour to Liguria.
Immerse yourself in the picturesque and beautiful natural landscapes of Tuscany. Step by step and day after day, you will explore the region's beauty on foot at your own pace. On our hiking tour of Picturesque Tuscany, for 8 days you will experience the most beautiful hiking routes in Tuscany, delicious culinary delights and impressive cultural sights.
Start your tour in the Renaissance city of Florence and admire its beautiful palaces and cathedrals before reaching the historic towns of Siena and Volterra situated in the typical Tuscan hills. The final destination of the hike is the Tuscan coast, where you can enjoy the view of the turquoise sea with a glass of wine.
With a total area of approximately 200,000 km2, the Alpine region offers a range of walking holidays for everyone. The Alps is the highest high mountain range in the interior of Europe, stretching for about 1,200 kilometres from the Ligurian Sea to the Pannonian Basin. The Alpine regions comprise eight countries, also known as the Alpine states and include Austria, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, France, Liechtenstein, Slovenia and Monaco.
On our tours, crossing the Alps isn't only for just for intrepid mountain hikers. Crossing the Alps with us on our easier routes becomes an enjoyable active experience for almost every experience level.
Fully-organised walking holidays are the best way to walk or hike in new surroundings along some of Europe's most popular and lesser-known walking trails in a confident way.
We have a wide selection of walking tours available across Europe, but all of our hiking holidays have several things in common such as luggage transfers and pre-planned routes.
We've highlighted several reasons why you should go on a self-guided walking holiday in our overview video.
If you have never been on a hiking holiday like this before or are used to organising everything yourself from planning the route to carrying your tent, our short video will give you an idea of what to expect on a walking tour with us.
