Under the auspices of Toscana Trekking, some touroperators propose day excursions, hiking trips and nature and cultural packages with the services of fully-qualified, licensed hiking guides, members of AGAE, the European association of hiking guides.

Our eco-tourist activities are completely different from traditional tourist packages in that they are aimed at people who enjoy hiking and walks and who prefer to stay in simple and informal accommodation while still maintaining a guarantee of good quality.

Each trip is distinguished by various levels of walking difficulty (which are clearly explained, with easier alternatives in the case of the harder routes). For each route uphill ascents and walking times are specified.

All hiking routes are covered at a relaxed pace (except in unforeseen circumstances) and according to the walking pace of participants. The emphasis of the itineraries is to get to know the surrounding countryside and its history rather than the hiking itself. Walking therefore becomes the means which allows us to discover the human dimension of the places we visit, to establish continuous and valuable exchanges with their inhabitants, and to get to know and understand the nature of these communities in the light of their history and popular traditions. The guide will adopt the role of the islander or mountain dweller, farmer or sailor, be it from Elba, Siena, Pavia or Ponza, and will try to involve participants in his or her enthusiasm for the history and the environment, and in a respectful curiosity for the local inhabitants.

Visits to various places en route and stops along the way are given ample time, in order to create a cultural holiday that is both relaxing and regenerating. A fundamental aim for Toscana Trekking is to create a “group spirit” that goes beyond the holiday itself and may lay the ground for lasting friendships.

Below we describe a number of example programmes. Each one can be tailored to suit group requirements.
