TREKKING OR WALKING?
IMMERSE YOURSELF IN THE NATURE OF ELBA
Elba Island is an unparalleled paradise for those who love the sea and nature: its entire territory will make you fall in love! Trekking means seeing with different eyes an island that is known mainly for spending summer vacations, so doing this type of activity can be an opportunity to visit Elba in the spring and fall. There are plenty of routes, both for novice and trained people. One of the most spectacular, but also toughest, routes is the GTE (Great Elban Crossing): a route that crosses all of Elba starting from the villages at the northeastern end and ending at the western coast.

A SPECTACULAR ROUTE
The GTE route is an opportunity to get to know Elba and discover unspoiled nature. This trail fascinates not only sportsmen but also nature lovers. The route is to be walked in stages and runs along the ridge that connects most of the trails on the island.
The Grande Traversata Elbana offers incredible views, the Mediterranean scrub is wonderful and especially in spring, the yellow color of the broom trees acts as a backdrop to a crystal clear sea. A spectacle for the eyes and soul of every nature lover. By staying at our Bed and Breakfast Villa Costanza you will be in the heart of Elba, but if you are a group and want to travel the GTE, we can arrange both logistics for you and find a guide for you to follow along the route.

ITINERARIES FOR ALL TASTES
Elba Island in autumn and spring is the island of trekking. Wonderful in summer, with its white beaches and clear waters, our island is at its best in the off-season, when the sun is less hot and allows you to walk along
the many scenic trails. This is the ideal time to discover the island by trekking in search of minerals, uncrowded beaches and unspoiled nature. Among other things, the Elban microclimate makes it possible to enjoy its terrain and still take a few more baths between excursions. Experiencing Elba Island in the off-season is an experience not to be missed, with the colors of the forests, the scent of the vineyards and mushrooms. If you need advice or want to organize a course, we will be glad to help you.

ON THE SUMMIT OF ELBA
During the summer season with its hot temperatures it is not easy to go hiking, but if you are a lover of hiking, we recommend following shaded trails and leaving early in the morning. A very impressive hike is to Mount Capanne, the view you will see from the top will remain in your heart and you can admire all the beauty of the island from above.
The great thing about this hike is that you will have from 1018 meters above sea level an overview of the island that extends to Corsica and the islands of the Tuscan archipelago on a clear day. That of Mount Capanne is an area characterized by mixed forests with many holm oaks and the Mediterranean scrub that has settled on the granite rocks that make up the structure of the island and of which Mount Capanne is the most important “representative.” If, on the other hand, you don’t want to tire yourself too much, you can go up to the summit by gondola from Marciana Alta and walk down!
