Elba Island, coasts to summits

Elba Island, coasts to summits - 6 days

Elba Island, coasts to summits - 6 days

Both Venus, Roman Goddess of Beauty and Napoleon, all-powerful French emperor, chose Elba as a great place to take a walking tour through picturesque fishing villages, along rugged coastlines, mountain ridges and on the dreamy, sandy island beaches. 

We really don't find it hard to believe - but want to take you into the lesser known side of the island, where you can admire the sea from up above and the air is filled with the scents of rosemary and myrtle

Medieval villages overlooking the sea, fortress and lighthouses, and the views getting more beautiful every day: from the Mediterranean sea fo the Corsica, through the Tuscan archipelago and the islands of Capraia and Montecristo, with the sea always present and ready to welcome you for a refreshing dip to top your walking day with.

Is this trip for me?

This is a great trip to experience Elba Island in a more active way, possibly after spending a few days basking in the sun of its beautiful beaches. Every day you'll be able to choose among excursions of different level, but we do not recommend this trip as a first walking holiday because some of the excursions are quite challenging. This trip is not suitable for vertigo sufferers.
