TREKKING ON THE SEA
April 29 to May 3, 2020
Five days of hiking immersed in 360 ° on the west coast of Liguria, between sea and mountains, between prehistory and history, between beauty … and only beauty …
Start: Boissano or Toirano
Route: ∼50 km
Difference in altitude: ∼ 2500 m overall
Difficulty: medium. There are no technical difficulties along the way and for this it is suitable for everyone, but requires a training base to be able to walk 5 consecutive days (possibility of adding a light training program starting from a month before departure).
Peaks reachable: Mount Ravinet and Mount Carmo.
The beginning of our crossing will be with 360° sea view!
The first day of the walk will be the most demanding, but there will certainly be plenty of opportunities to give yourself some obligatory stops to savor the landscape and catch your breath: San Pietrino and the Abbey of San Pietro ai Monti enrich our first day of interest. The first stop will be at the Pian delle Bosse refuge, for a special start!
We will then make a link with the high route of the Ligurian mountains, along wide and never too impervious paths. You will pass through wonderful birch and beech woods with a truly fairytale atmosphere.
The route will be a semicircle that will lead us from the sea to the mountains, then return once again to the sea, along part of the via Julia Augusta, a Roman street on which there are still some Roman bridges in perfect condition and still in use, it will therefore not be only a wonderful journey, but also a journey through history, which also interests us in PREhistory, since the Manie cave, the last added stop, is one of the most interesting archaeological sites in the Finale area!
Price: 200 € each
The price does NOT include transportation, food and accommodation.
Hut: ∼ 45 €
