Trekking trip: discovering Ischia – Fixed date 5 March

A trekking trip designed for the beautiful Ischia, where breathtaking views overlook the blue sea. The volcanic island of the Gulf of Naples is famous for its thermal waters and for the sometimes wild nature that will accompany you along the paths. The proposed excursions are suitable for an average trekker, with lengths from 2 to 7 km and height differences up to 420 meters. In particular, the Biancolella path could be of medium / high difficulty due to the steep descent. The proposal of Monte di Panza, on the other hand, is medium / easy, ideal for admiring the belvedere overlooking the bay of Sorgeto, and which ends with a stop at the bay where it is possible to swim. On the other hand, the trekking proposal on the Epomeo crest is of medium difficulty, where the route continues until you reach the highest peak of the island, Punta San Nicola (789m). One day, on the other hand, is dedicated to the sea, another inevitable stop for those staying on the island. A day dedicated to the discovery of the coves and bays that will give us magnificent contexts where to take a dip. The unmissable:

  • MONTE DI PANZA, BAIA PELARA and SORGETO
  • THE TRAILS OF BIANCOLELLA
  • MONTE EPOMEO
  • TOUR OF THE ISLAND BY BOAT

In addition, the proposal includes a stay in a structure that has a swimming pool with thermal waters, where you can relax after a day of trekking. We also remember the famous delicacies of the island such as “the Ischian Gypsy” a quick dish or the “Rabbit all’ischitana” main dish of local cuisine or the “Pizza Scarola”. Finally, being an island, spaghetti with clams or mussels could not be missing. Among the curiosities the local tuff stone, which gives the nickname of “green island”, not for the vegetation but for the color of the stone, visible precisely at the top of Mount Epomeo. 5 days and 4 nights for a trekking trip to discover this little pearl.

The descent is introduced by a steep flight of steps with wooden steps carved into the tuff that lead to a stratified wall of pumice, ashes and lapilli.
