It is one of the bikers' favourite places, as well as a never ending path for trekking, so it is the perfect place for those whose idea of a complete holiday means doing physical exercise in the middle of nature.
Thanks to its mild climate and its varying nature untouched by man, the island is perfect both for those who practice extreme sports, and for those who prefer doing something less strenuous: there are outdoor sports for everybody. Whether you are on foot, on horseback, or on a mountain bike, it is undoubtedly the best way to go through the woods or across the stony ground on the Island of Elba; this is the only way to come across small sea towns, or stories of shepherds engraved on ancient dolomites, or the intense perfumes of the Mediterranean scrub, or the colours of the wild, vivid nature.
A holiday on the Island of Elba gives you the chance to put yourself to the test and find out just how courageous you really are by trying free climbing on the numerous cliffs; if you prefer you can spend a relaxing day on a golf course. In both cases expert instructors are willing to teach even amateurs or those not used to physical exercise.
During the summer months there are many occasions if you wish to take part in agonistic races or competitions, some even at an international level: mountain bike, running, golf, rallying, and many others that are perfect for the wild, natural environment that is so typical of this island.
If, on the other hand, you want a totally relaxing holiday so you can forget stress and worries, the San Giovanni Thermal Baths have a wide choice of treatments to offer.
