A day of hiking in the Barolo Langhe region

On the Paths of the barolo wine Barolo between Barolo and La Morra, a long walk through vineyards and villages

€ 99

The name Barolo evokes the full-bodied taste of red wine that takes its name from this village in the Langhe region, and the surrounding landscape is all vineyards, orderly and geometric, which change color with the passing of the seasons, accompanying the growth and maturation of the precious Nebbiolo grape. On this day we will walk the paths through the vineyards between Barolo and La Morra, without forgetting a tasty lunch break, among hill churches like the famous Cappella del Barolo and the picturesque streets of the villages, in the company of an Environmental Hiking Guide.

Salire su una cima e scoprire che il mondo continua senza confini, toccare il cielo e vedere le stelle, la luna il sole. Contemplare il bianco della neve e il silenzio ovattato dell'inverno oppure godere dei colori della primavera, dell'estate e dell'autunno. Sentire la pioggia cadere, vivere in maniera positiva anche le giornate che sembrano non promettere nulla di buono.

Mai senza: caffè

Classification of difficulty levels for trekking and hiking itineraries:

  • 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.

All our tours are suitable for all ages (let's say from the age of 14 upwards) - the best thing if you have a doubt about the technical difficulties or the length of the route, you can call us and speak directly with your guide who can advise you in the best way based on your experience and your needs.

  • CLOTHING We recommend to dress in layers, using breathable garments, but without forgetting a fleece and a windproof and rainproof jacket. Regarding the trousers it is better to opt for a pair that would be not too heavy, able to dry quickly and especially with elastic parts to facilitate movement and be comfortable.
  • 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.
