Slow and Experential Trips
We spend our time to create tailor made walking and cycling holidays in some of the most authentic corners of Southern Italy ideal for slow travel.
We explore on foot the alleys and paths of Puglia, Calabria, Basilicata and Aeolian Islands discovering charming small towns where time seems untouched by the modern life.
We discover through the voices of the local elders, still well rooted traditions, popular festivals and religious celebrations.
We taste traditional food, wine and visit typical southern Italian farmhouses experiencing some local activities like grape harvesting, baking bread and homemade pasta.
We explore a marvellous nature hiking in some of the most important Italian National Parks observing many rare, spontaneous, endemic and unique plants and trees like the “Pino Loricato” while walking we capture the smell of medicinal plants such as mint, thyme, lavender, oregano, santoreggia …you find yourself staring at the vaulting of kestrels and buzzards or at the elegant flight of a kite.
Most of our accommodations are charming farmhouses, cosy and sustainable b&b facing astonishing views of the mountains or the sea, or scattered hotels ( albergo diffuso ) run by families.
We design, research and explore all itineraries ourselves be sure to texture them with Mediterranean scents, colours and atmospheres.
