    Signature

    We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

    Bistro

    These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

La Dolce Vita on a Vibrant Coast

Walking in terraced vineyards, dizzily high over the sea, you’ll grasp the human energy behind that magnificent glass of sciacchetrà. You’ll stroll through a village’s tall bright houses while each faded green trim and ornate finish speaks to you of their thirst for beauty. Each day here plays out with that exact mix of challenge and beauty that makes Liguria unique, and at the end of days spent hiking ancient trails, the sight of your hotel’s azure pool is an invitation to utter relaxation. And then of course there is the food; delicious al fresco lunches, passeggiate followed by pasta and good times topped with a scoop of life altering gelato; buon Appetito!

Activity Level What’s Included Gear Extend Your Trip

Avid

Due to the rugged coastline, many of the walks involve climbing steep coastal paths, with lengthy descents into picturesque villages. The terrain varies from dirt tracks to winding stone staircases. Individuals uncomfortable with heights may have trouble with some sections. Average daily distances range from 7-12 km (4-8 mi.). As with all B&R trips, longer optional walks are available for the energetic or shorter by taking the train. Please note that there is no van support because of lack of vehicle access to trails. You can take trains in some cases to shorten the walk.

The Traveller

“I walk regularly and enjoy the feeling of achievement I get from a good hike.”

The Terrain

Varies between rolling and hilly, with a few steeper climbs.
