Cycling & Walking Holidays in Italy

Discover the ‘Dolce Vita’ lifestyle on one of our walking or cycling holidays in Italy. Our wide range of affordable, active holidays in Italy, from the heights of the Dolomites to the colourful meadows of Tuscany and beyond to the rocky and dramatic coastline of Italy's south, feature the perfect blend of both cultural and natural treasures to ensure your Italian experience is as unique as the country itself.

Sherpa Expeditions offers great hiking opportunities in the north of Italy. The chiselled limestone peaks of the Dolomites, with the valleys of Cortina, Corvara and the Marmolada glacier draw on mountain walkers who want a change from the Alpine landscape norm. While on the Alpine theme the Apuane Alps in northern Tuscany consist of less intimidating limestone massifs rising up to 2,000m, smothered with chestnut forests and speckled with small villages sitting on terraced vineyards and orchard aprons - great for Italy walking holidays and cycling trips. Alternatively enjoy the delights of the lakeland scenery on a walking trip to Lake Como, along the Amalfi Coast or opt for a short break to the little travelled Cilento region

Heading for the Italian Islands to the west, you can walk or cycle in Sardinia for a great vacation along the coast and into the mountains of this unique destination, with its long white sandy beaches and even a flock or two of flamingos at certain times of the year. 


Italy is at its best for cycling and walking holidays in the European spring (April-May) and autumn (October-November). During these seasons, the scenery is beautiful, the temperatures are pleasant and there are relatively few crowds that you will come across when cycling or hiking in Italy. For those that crave the heat, travelling in the summer months (June - August) are the busiest, however just as popular, especially for coastal walking holidays.
