The paths and trailswe suggest are easy to follow even by beginners. However, due to the type of paths and where they are, the careful excursionist might have some questions, so we suggest you go in the spring-summer months, with the necessary equipment and adequate clothing.
Whoever chooses to go for a walk along the paths and trails in Elba has also chosen to be surrounded by nature, so what better a way to improve your health, especially if you live in a big city, than an excursion. Never forget, however, that Mother Nature also belongs to our children, and our children's children; sad to say, some people's behaviour is slowly destroying our natural environment.
In order to fully appreciate the immense beauty of Elba, its environmental and archeological richness of Elba, and the many variations in nature, there are many accommodation possibilities, combined with naturalistic, archeological and educational excursions available all year round:
Any time of the year is suitable, but mid season is better if you want to avoid the crowds.
Hiking boots are a must, as well as an anorak (a K-Way is perfect because it is very light) and a back pack. Not absolutely necessary but certainly very useful: binoculars for observing animals and admiring the Mediterranean scrub, and your camera for photographing flowers and scenery.
