It’s a bright spring day. Imagine how you feel after a reinvigorating hike in Cinque Terre. Thanks to our wine tours, you’re now sitting in a semi-empty winery, drinking in both the wine and the beautiful vista. Sound too perfect to be true? With our customizable tour, it can become a reality! We know all the best spots to explore, far from the typical crowded outdoor activities in Italy.
Italy also has amazing mountain hiking trails. Discover the Dolomite Mountains: on a Vie Ferrate hike you could spot glaciers in the distance, soaring peaks and, emerald green lakes surrounded by forests of pine and larch with reflections of the mountains mirrored on their calm waters.
But if these ideas sound too quiet for you and you are wondering what adrenaline activities you can do in Italy, we have you covered: does an e-bike hike on the still active Etna Volcano in Sicily sound adventurous enough?
Maybe you would prefer to see where the Ancient Greeks thought sirens lived: on The Path of Gods hike on the Amalfi coast you’ll have an English speaking professional hiking guide to accompany you along a trail full of mystery and history.Let’s pick your adventure
Enjoy what Italy is most famous for: Sun, Sea, and Fun.
With our all-inclusive tour by boat along the Sorrento coast, you will board a typical Sorrentine gozzo – a traditional wooden boat – and stop at Nerano Bay for appetizers with fresh fried fish.
If you like boat trips you will also love our Taormina boat trip featuring the marine reserve of Isola Bella with an aperitif and lunch directly onboard. At Lake Garda take a private tour featuring a private boat ride to enjoy views of Isola del Garda and Rocca di Manerba nature park. Pro tip: ask us about the Piaggio Ape buggy ride on the panoramic Strada della Forra road for a hint of Italian nostalgia.
On the Kayak tour in Cinque Terre, while the sun is turning red over a quiet sea, you will paddle with our expert guide to a quiet cove, accessible only by sea, where you will enjoy some organic wine and focaccia.
Also, see for yourself how beautiful Italian sea can be in our snorkeling sessions around sea caves in Puglia.Let’s Talk About Your Vacation
Some parts of Italy in winter transform in to a magical winter wonderland, places where you can be surrounded by the calm and muffled sensation of snow, and engage in a lot of fun and cold activities.
Have you ever tried a snowshoe hike? It is the best way to fully enjoy the beautiful scenery on the Tre Cime of Lavaredo, especially if accompanied by our expert English speaking alpine guide. And when you are finished, you can relax in front of the fire sipping hot chocolate in Rifugio Locatelli, 2.405 m high.
Looking for something for all the family to enjoy? Try tobogganing in the mountains, or a horse-drawn sleigh ride in Val Gardena: a fun way to enjoy snow days with your kids.
And for ski and snowboarding lovers, we have you covered: with our cross-country skiing experience in the Dolomiti Superski region you’ll enter in a magical snowy territory, steeping yourself through pines and a relaxing silence.Let’s Talk About Your Vacation

This hike is the most beautiful hike I've ever experienced in my entire life. I want to go back in the summer and wear water shoes and jump into the pools and waterfalls, it was just too beautiful to describe here.
After the hike, our guide, Giulia, showed us the "Brando Castle" on the hill overlooking the nature reserve & town. The fun cable car up and down took just 15 minutes and was an easy addition to end the day.
Even my 6 year old, after the tour, mentioned that this was his favorite day, and it was absolutely my favorite, too.
