  • Difficulty Level
    Level 3
    X

    Level 1: Occasional

    Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day over relatively flat terrain with a few small hills—all very manageable for people trying their first biking trip.

    Walking – 6-10 km (4-6 mi.) a day on country lanes, footpaths and coastal or forest trails, all on relatively flat terrain, perhaps with an occasional hill.

    Level 2: Recreational

    Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day over terrain that’s relatively flat but will include inclines and the occasional climb or two.

    Walking – 8-12 km (5-7 mi.) a day over relatively flat terrain, with occasional steeper climbs.

    Level 3: Enthusiast

    Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day in gently rolling countryside, with occasional longer climbs to points that are well worth the effort.

    Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) a day over rolling terrain on a variety of surfaces. Most days, one or two steeper climbs to spectacular viewpoints or places of interest.

    Level 4: Avid

    Biking – Roughly 50 km (30 mi.) a day in consistently rolling countryside, with repeated climbs and longer options available.

    Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) over terrain that varies between rolling and hilly, with a few steeper climbs.

    Level 5: Expert

    Biking – 50-60 km (30-45 mi.) a day over both level and tougher, hillier terrain with multiple 100 km (62 mi.) options. The routes are designed for avid cyclists and include plenty of chances to push yourself.

    Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) a day over fairly hilly terrain offering lots of challenges. Routes are along high meadow paths and/or well-maintained cliffside or alpine trails, with a few steep ascents to make you feel invigorated.

Glory on either side of the Apennines

Prepare to savour some of the best meals of your life. Did we say meals? We meant wines (think Barolos and Barbarescos). Wait – we meant views (think Italian Riviera). Oh, shoot, no. We meant hotels (there’s a reason they call them Splendido).

Activity Level What’s Included Gear Extend Your Trip

Level 3

Our walking is somewhat hilly with a few steep sections, and a few flat ones. For the most part, we stay on the dirt paths that run through the vineyards and forests, but we occasionally take quiet asphalt roads. There are also several sections with steps in Liguria. The daily distances and long options range from 5 to 15 km (3 to 9 mi.) with good van support for when you’re ready to relax back at the hotel.

What’s included? Everything you need. Plus everything you’d
want. Plus a few things you never knew you wanted ‘til you got them.

In a word: everything. In ninety words? Signature B&R guides; local experts; unique, unforgettable biking and walking routes; private tours; authentic local cuisine; lessons and demonstrations; local artisanal wines; wine tastings; all victuals and libations; all the endorphins you can handle; new insight; interesting, fun and like-minded travel companions; a feeling of total freedom. In short: an extraordinary, hassle-free journey of discovery.

Call us to create an independent travel experience that fits your needs—we can also arrange for a local guide.

Spend time in Cinque Terre

Just southeast of the Italian Riviera lies famed Cinque Terre, which make for an excellent place to extend your vacation and get in more excellent walking. While high-end properties in the five towns of the Cinque Terre proper are almost non-existent, it is easy to “commute” to them from larger nearby towns such as Sestri Levante. Call for details on organizing a post-trip.
