Self-guided hiking in Italy

All of our hiking trips in Italy include charming hand-picked accommodation, luggage transportation, detailed walking notes, maps and GPS tracks.

Italy’s charms are no secret. It’s wine and cuisine are world-renowned, as are its culturally rich cities and towns. What is often overlooked though, is the fact that Italy is also a fabulous and compelling hiking destination.

Few countries can offer such an incredible variety of spectacular landscapes, from the rugged mountains and pastoral valleys of the Alps and Dolomites to the famously beautiful northern lakes; from the idyllic countryside and picturesque hilltop villages of Tuscany to the cliff-hanging trails of the Amalfi coast and the Cinque Terre, framed by lemon groves and terraced vineyards and overlooking the vast blueness of the Mediterranean.

With walking trails that are well marked and maintained, hiking in Italy is a pleasure – and with such a variety of trails and terrain there is truly something for everyone. The best seasons for walking are spring and early autumn, though the season is shorter in the Alps and Dolomites (late June to September).
