Trekking to discover Malta and Gozo

The Maltese archipelago is the protagonist of this trip, 4 days of trekking combined with some cultural visits will be the key to being able to “read” this destination admiring all the surprising nature and history that contaminated it by meeting Phoenician, Roman and castles remains of knights. You will wander in Mdina (the ancient capital), in the fortified Valleta, and  you will also have the opportunity to wander around the small Gozo.

  • FACILITIES: most of the Maltese trekking itineraries can be classified as easy routes. Malta is an island with undulating terrain but without demanding elevations (about 260 meters the highest point above sea level). The dirt road is mainly rocky, but we will also walk on roads “white” or low-traffic roads and along some passages on a clayey bottom. We will meet some short steep climbs (70/80 meters in altitude) usually no more than a couple per route.
  • SEASONALITY The best time to go hiking in Malta is from October to April especially for a matter of temperatures, since the Maltese summer can be very hot. With some precautions (good hydration, times and length of the itineraries) it is possible to walk also in May and September. Instead, we tend to advise against hiking between June and August (unless it is a very short walk). Malta is not particularly rainy and in winter temperatures rarely drop below 10 degrees, but the island is very windy. A good windbreaker (preferably waterproof) will therefore be our best travel companion.

SHORT TREKKING

The route winds along the north-east coast in a ring tour that also runs through short portions of the hinterland.

Gozo is only a third of Malta large, but nevertheless it offers magnificent walks. Getting to Gozo from Malta is easy, but you have to keep in mind the transfer times (ferry-boat) which, although contained it affect the timing of the excursion. Also for this reason, speaking of Gozo we prefer to propose the formula "Hike & amp; Visit", in order to make the most of the day. A magnificent Hike & amp; Visit to Gozo consists of a Trekking in the north-western region of the island. You will leave from the village of Nadur, known for its grotesque carnival and for its delicious Gozitan ftiras, you will pass through the famous Ramla Bay, the beach of Calipso, the most beautiful of the archipelago, for the scenic Tal-Mixta cave and for the small and picturesque bay of Dahlet Qorrot with its typical docks carved out of stone to then return to Nadur for a lunch break. You start walking at 09:30 am (by calculating the transfer times with the ferry-boat, the pick-up at the hotel is at 08:00 am). After the lunch break, around 15:00 pm,you will move to the Citadel of Victoria for the discovery walk. You will return to Malta around 05:30pm.
