Top 5 Outdoor Pursuits in Italy

Tuesday, February 12, 2013



If you’re a lover of the outdoors, opt for a sojourn in Italy and you will be faced with the decider of what pursuits to follow once you’re there. With so many choices on offer, it can be a difficult choice, but here’s a taste of what you could be getting up to:

Windsurfing

Windsurfing holidays are a popular choice in Italy, particular around the north shores of Lake Garda, where the wind conditions are perfect for such an activity. More popular windsurfing destinations may be around Greece, or Turkey, but that doesn’t mean to say you can’t enjoy it on the freshwater lakes too. As an activity available whatever time of year you visit, there are plenty of centres on the northern lakeshores, offering courses for adults and children alike.

Skiing

If Italy is famous for an adrenaline-fuelled pursuit, skiing is it. Head for one its popular resorts, such as Sauze d’Oulx, the gateway to the Milky Way ski area, or Arabba in the Dolomites and you could experience some fantastic solo, family and group ski holidays which will remain in your memory forever.

Snowboarding

Likewise, opportunities to snowboard are rife, with plenty of off-piste trails to explore and terrain parks to sample, in many of the resorts scattered around the north of Italy.

Hiking

Try the Lake Garda walking week for size, following historic routes of World War I, or head further into the Dolomites for some more challenging hikes – a perfect way to admire the natural beauty of the area.

Mountain Biking

The hills surrounding Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore are perfect for mountain biking, however challenging you want the terrain to be. From gentle rides to steep descents, it can be as adrenaline-fuelled as you like.

Enjoy a vacation filled with outdoor pursuits and you will return home from Italy feeling invigorated and refreshed.
