Our travel to Italy today will be very special: we are going to  Alto Adige -South Tyrol.

ake the opportunity of the hot and sultry days to leave the city and move towards the cool offered by our mountains and our green mountain pastures.



Walking is the most natural and healthy that you can do. If during the whole year in the big cities or because of laziness or lack of time we don't walk or go to the gym to walk on a treadmill in an artificial way, it's important to move on vacation.

In the mountains, and especially in Alto Adige / Südtirol, there are no excuses: you go walking. And you can choose if enjoy an experience the mountains running or climbing vertically ...

If you go to the mountain for the first time, surely it is worth to rely to a mountain guide; depending on what you'd like to do, if you want to go hiking in high mountain or rock climbing.
