Hiking between sea and nature.
A graet hike that crosses the whole Isola d'Elba, a multi-day trek between sea and nature, in a style based on the essential, in order to pursue every gram of suggestion that this beautiful land can offer, perfect alchemy between nature, history, culture and sea.
The Elba, with the other main islands of Arcipelago Toscano (Giglio, Capraia, Montecristo, Pianosa, Giannutri and Gorgona) and several islets and reefs, are part of the Arcipelago Toscano National Park, the largest marine park in Europe: like pearls in a necklace, these islands are different one from the other, each of them is unique, their only common feature is represented by the beauty of the nature.
An emotional trekking along the ridges and hills that make up the backbone of Elba, privileged terrace to admire great-views... and when evening comes, be by the sea and enjoy beautiful beaches, soothing baths and sunsets ever unique, thinking of the big-day just passed and continue to dream.
In a perfect mix of nights under the stars, camping and a cozy inn the final evening, in search of the ultimate expression of freedom and contact with nature, all-encompassing experience for unforgettable memories.
