3 days hiking on the trails of Liguria, tour between cliffs, olive trees and focaccia

Discover the beautiful coastline around Finale Ligure, a walking route overlooking the sea

 

This is 3 days of easy / intermediate level hiking, starting in the morning and returning in the evening to Finale Ligure, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, our base for this adventure. During the day we will walk on paths overlooking the sea, we will discover ancient dolmens, streams and rocky outcrops, accompanied by an Environmental Hiking Guide, and in the evening we will rest tasting the Ligurian specialties. 

It is a fascinating trip for those who love nature, in a small group of up to 8 people, which allows you to meet other travelers and walk among friends, listening to stories and learning to know this beautiful corner of Liguria.

Our minibus will assist us to take us on the paths, and to take us from Turin (or from Fossano - CN) to Finale Ligure, and bring us back at the end of the holiday.

The price also includes the night accommodation, and all packed lunches and dinners.

Please note: the route can be modified according to weather and safety conditions. So there might be last minute variations.

Finale Ligure

difficulty level:Easy

Relatively short itineraries on paths and dirt roads, with some climbs to be faced without hurry and at the right pace! Ideal for new hikers and for those who want to take up easy hiking again.

Day 1 Caprazoppa (elevation gain: 350mt)

On the first day, after stocking up on excellent focaccia in Finalborgo, we will take the Napoleonic Road, a pleasant gravel trail on which we will climb the slopes of the Caprazoppa mount. We will then get to the beautiful old town of Verezzi and we will get back to Finale Ligure on a loop trail passing under the fortress of Orera.

 

Day 2:  Crossing Finalborgo - Varigotti (Elevation gain: 650mt)

On the second day, starting from Finalborgo we will climb through olive groves and vegetable gardens to the small towns of Monticello and San Bernardino, then descend into the Valle Ponci and then go up towards the suggestive Manie plateau, from which we take a panoramic path overlooking the sea that will lead us to the seafront of Varigotti.

 

Day 3 Varigotti and Capo Noli (elevation gain: 600 mt)

From Varigotti we will travel along a magnificent path that dominates the coast up to the promontory of Capo Noli passing through the “Torre delle Streghe” (“Tower of the Witches”). We will then descend towards the coast along a pleasant and scenic itinerary that leads to Novi Ligure.

A great sports and mountain lover, during the summer you will find him along the trails hiking and mountain biking, and in the winter again there with skis or a snowboard on his feet. Always looking for new routes, he loves good food and good company. When he is not in the mountains you'll find him at the sea side surfing or rehearsing a play with his actor friends.

Never without: a good cup of coffee

Minibus

This tour is perfect for solo travellers:

  • we take care of everything
  • you are independent and can choose whether and when to share meals and your free time with the group
  • you get to know people from all around the world in a small group

We'll start with a coffee (yes, real espresso!) or a juice and pastry, get to know the group, and by the time we jump on board and start exploring you'll be among friends.

So, solo travellers are very welcome on our tours, and if you are ok with sharing a double/triple room with other members of the group we'll send you an email after the booking and you will tell us your preferences (e.g. girl ok to share a bedroom with other girls only, etc).

If however you prefer us to book a single room for you, it is available during the reservation process for an additional fee..

If there are no other solo travellers in your tour or if there is no possibility to match your preferences (or your roommates happen to snore too much!), your single room will be on us, no additional charge will be required.

This tour consists of 3 days of itineraries of levels variable between Easy (relatively short itineraries, on wide paths and flat dirt roads or with mild slopes, lasting 3-4 hours of walking and with a positive difference in altitude of 450-550 maximum meters) and Intermediate (routes on paths of various kinds, sometimes with marked slopes, lasting 5-6 hours of walking and with a positive vertical gains of maximum 900-1000 meters).

So, it does not pose particular difficulties, but to enjoy the holiday and be at ease it is good to self-evaluate objectively your own conditions and abilities.

 

 

Classification of difficulty levels for trekking and hiking itineraries:

  • Easy (Tourist): relatively short itineraries, on wide paths and flat dirt roads or with slight slopes; lasting 3-4 hours of walking and with a positive vertical gain of maximum 450-550 meters.
  • Intermediate (excursion): itineraries on paths of various kinds, sometimes with marked slopes; lasting 5-6 hours of walking and with a positive difference in height of maximum 900-1000 meters.
  • Challenging (Expert Hiking): itineraries that present some technical difficulties, such as rocky ground, slight snowy slopes, exposed sections and in some cases single rocky sections of easy climbing (I and II degree) that require the use of hands; a good rhythm is required and physical preparation must be adequate for a day of continuous walking in the mountains; lasting 8-9 hours of walking and with a positive difference in altitude from 1000 meters upwards.
  • CLOTHING

    We recommend to dress in layers, using breathable garments, but without forgetting a fleece and a windproof and rainproof jacket.

     

  • FOOTWEAR: boots are good, better if not too heavy given the season, also low shoes as long as they are hiking shoes, suitable for walking on trails and dirt paths.

     

  • BACKPACK: Since we will start from a base each day, it is sufficient to have a backpack of 20-30 liters for day trips, with a cover in case of rain (you never know!).

     

  • TREKKING STICKS: ideal both uphill and downhill to reduce the effort of leg muscles and to reduce the load on the joints.
  • DO NOT FORGET:

    A pair of sunglasses, sunscreen, a water bottle of at least half a liter as well as a cap and a band to protect the forehead and ears from the wind are essential.

Trekking in Liguria

Nice ride, well calibrated, a mix of nature and landscapes but also history and urban centers. Lovely places and good food, enjoyed the ultimate relaxation directly on the beach or on the promenade while drinking something fresh. There is already a desire to return. A little more attention only in the choice of the hotel. Happy holidays to all (automatic translation by Google)
