Description of Cinque Terre walking holiday

This week-long small group holiday invites walkers to experience one of Italy’s best loved coastlines from a family run hotel in the seaside town of Moneglia.

Train rides take you to trail heads that lead back to Moneglia with woodlands, hillsides and the beautiful bays between Cinque Terre and Portofino providing the backdrop to a wonderful week of walking.

Cinque Terre has quite rightly become synonymous with artists and poets and no sooner than you’ve started walking from one seaside town and hilltop village to the next you’ll discover just why this area of Liguria is known as the Italian Riviera.

Sea food suppers, wine tasting tours and a free day at the beach turn this Cinque Terre walking holiday into an unforgettable Italian experience to treasure long after the tan finally fades.

Cinque Terre walking holiday

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

Accommodation & meals:
We spend the week in the family-run Hotel, Piccolo managed by Laura and her family. All meals in the hotel are homemade, using locally produced and sourced goods where possible. This ensures that our money spent provide economic benefits to the local community. It is perfectly located on the main street in Moneglia, providing easy access by train to the Cinque Terre. One of the dinners is taken at the family owned Assisto restaurant, offering fabulous food and wine with a true Italian atmosphere.

Activity:
Few holidays have as little detrimental impact on the environment and local residents as a walking trip. It is a quiet, low impact activity requiring comparatively little resources to support.

We do believe in leaving no more than footprints, however; this walking tour actively encourages guests to chat with local people, visit local cafes and bars, purchase local produce, gifts and crafts and discover what life is really like along the Ligurian coast. Throughout the trip, we will use local train services between towns as well as a cable car ride up to Montallegro for fantastic views of the coastline. Hence, transportation used is generally of little detrimental impact to the environment.

A Fair Deal:
We work closely with our local operator and ensure that all of our guides are local and that in exchange for their expertise that they are paid and treated fairly. The leaders will give a briefing on Responsible Tourism issues to help clients understand how they can help reduce their impact and maximise the benefits to the local community from our visit.

Group Size:
This is a small group tour, meaning that we have a low impact on the environments and communities we visit and are able to ensure that we do not disrupt or lead to the displacement of local people. The small number also allows us to stay in unique, family-run hotels that cannot benefit from coach tours and other mass tourism due to their limited sizes.

UK Office:
It all starts at home where we work towards reducing our carbon footprint in our offices through energy conservation measures, recycling policies and the promotion of cycling and walking as a means for our staff to commute. Our head office has become a plastic-free zone with the use of plastic bottles being banned in our head office and we distributed reusable water bottles and tote bags to every staff member. We also support a large number of community and environmental projects in different parts of the world and try to give something back to the places we visit.
