Hiking trips – Calabria

Calabria is a more relaxed, peaceful and tranquil part of Italy, with its wild natural scenery inviting a slower pace of life. Hiking is a glorious way to discover and explore this oft-overlooked part of Italy.

Calabria, often referred to as “the toe” of Italy’s boot-shaped Southern region, is home to some of the best coastline in the country, with vast tracts of rugged and rural landscape, scenery and terrain populating the interior.

The entire region is a hiking paradise, with highly mountainous areas giving way to some of the mostly wildly diverse flora and fauna in Italy.

The people here like their peaceful way of life, leaving the crowds and hordes of tourists to other Italian regions, meaning it retains much of its rich and authentic character.

Take a pick from our selection of hiking trips in Calabria, and prepare to be wowed by this natural slice of Italian beauty.

What People Say

 

i cannot say enough good things about lucia! she got me through to the top both physically
and mentally. give her 10 stars!!!! the hike itself gets 5 stars…my age limited my enjoyment of it to about 1 star. i simply bit off more than i could chew. at age 65, 5 star experience, but at nearly 87 ….too much for me.
jack rademaker for Road of 52 tunnels guided hike
Franco was a very professional guide. If you are not familiar with the trails in the Apuan Alps I highly
recommend you hire this company – for ease of mind and safety. I am a former mountain guide in the United States.
I can’t recommend Raphy highly enough. Good company and the magic ability to know who needs help and who needs
to just get on with it themselves. Great choice of hikes with stupendous scenery.
Benyapa Svasti-Xuto for Tre Cime di Lavaredo guided hiking tour
We had an amazing trip, although the weather was bad for Monte Pisanino, the guide Franco took us up a
neighbouring peak (Pizzo D’uchello). Not too technically or physically demanding it did require a good head for heights as some areas were exposed. Overall a great experience and led by a very knowledgable and professional guide. 5 stars, would recommend for anyone looking for something a bit different!
Kieran Anderson for Climbing Mt Pisanino, Apuan Alps
Just completed the 4 day Mont Blanc highlights tour and had the most amazing time. Raphael and Anja are outstanding
and supported us throughout our journey. Raphael is the best mountain guide knowing exactly when to support and when to push. Simply wonderful business
Die Tour Mont Blanc in der Gruppe mit Raffael als Bergführer war einfach wunderbar. Schon beim Buchen haben Anja und
Raffael super schnell und freundlich geantwortet. Die Zeit vor Ort in der Gruppe war fantastisch – die Wege gut ausgesucht, die Hütten urig, die Atmosphäre motivierend. – Man hätte sich nicht mehr wünschen können. Und dann haben uns beide auch noch mit sehr leckeren Menüs in den Selbstversorger-Hütten überrascht. Die Crepes mit selbst gesammelten Himbeeren und Blaubeeren mit weißer Schokalade im Sahne-Bett waren mein Favorit. Vielen Dank, dass Ihr Euch so ins Zeug gelegt habt. Die schönen Erinnerungen klingen noch nach!

He was really really fantastic and our trip was amazing! It was myself, my friend and our two sons and
Enrico challenged us all and was really patient and great with our boys. We had 5 days of hiking and via ferrata in an incredibly beautiful uncrowded part of the Dolomites. I felt 100% comfortable with Enrico that he made sure our kids were safe in every situation. We all had an unforgettable experience and want to come back for more :). I keep telling people how great explore share is!
Hace unos días hicimos el TMB con happy track ! Lo pasamos exelente, el servicio es impecable, Anja y Rafael
son unos guías y anfitriones excelentes: dedicados, atentos y muy experimentados. Sin dudas una experiencia inolvidable!
Germana Durrieu for 4-day tour in Mont Blanc massif
We had a great experience with Franco (member of Roberto guides’ team) who guided us in this trek in Apuan
Alps, the Pisanino, which is the highest summit in all this region. The level of difficulty is low while you should be ready to have some vertigos view at some points but we should say the panoramas are so stunning between the Apennines, the Mediterranean sea and the other mountains from Alpi Apuane all around. Franco has been so kind to explain in details the other treks of the region we will not miss to do next time !
