Sicily From Trapani to Segesta by the sea

❍ Open Tour

Multi-day hiking tour to discover Sicily between Trapani and Segesta. Hiking while looking at the sea is beautiful!

Marvelous multi-day hiking tour through the wonders of Sicily, from Trapani to Segesta via Erice, San Vito lo Capo and the Zingaro Nature Reserve.

This multi-day tour is never too strenuous and is suitable for most hikers who want to experience the beauty of the Mediterranean's largest island on foot.
Hiking through northwestern Sicily by the sea in this season is a unique experience. We hike daily from one place to another on trails and dirt roads almost always by the sea. There are also some more challenging climbs to reach scenic peaks overlooking the sea.

Nature, history, culture, food and wine, this hiking tour is an immersive experience through all that Sicily has to offer.
Italy is among the most beautiful and fascinating countries in the world, backpacking is the best way to enjoy it. Are you joining us?

The technical level required is not for experts but it is necessary to be fit enough to hike every day about 4 to 6 hours.

Whether alone or in the company of your friends, joining this multi-day tour is something you won't forget - contact us for more information.

Daily Program

Trapani, Erice
Altitude difference: 800 meters over 8 kilometers

Departing from elevation 0, we are on the seashore, in the center of beautiful Trapani, a Sicilian city rich in history and culture. We hike out of the city and slowly face the ascent to Erice, a splendid village perched on the mountain, a real pearl of the island and of Italy. In the evening we know where to go to enjoy the typical homemade pasta called "busiate," a real local delicacy.

Trapani is easily accessible via flights from all over Europe. The airport is only a few kilometers from the city.

Custonaci, Monte Cofano
Altitude difference: 100 meters over 14 kilometers

From beautiful Erice we return to elevation 0 where a pleasant hike by the sea awaits us. The temptation to stop for a swim is strong but Mount Monaco awaits us! In the afternoon, challenging climb to enjoy a splendid sunset, descent with headlamp and belly to fill thanks to the excellent Sicilian cuisine.

For those hiking 4 days instead of 5, it is possible to join the group on Saturday, Oct. 28, in Erice.

San Vito lo Capo
Altitude difference: 200 meters over 16 kilometers

We continue our trek by the sea in the direction of San Vito lo Capo, one of the most famous vacation resorts of Italy. The route is mainly flat but rather long. We take advantage of it to pass at the foot of the famous cliff of San Vito where we will have the opportunity to visit an interesting rock formation. Here where the waves of the sea meet the rock, erosion has created natural sculptures to be admired. At sunset, the cliffs of San Vito become red and we will be ready to enjoy the spectacle!

Zingaro Nature Reserve
Altitude difference: 700 meters over 12 kilometers

Today's route quickly makes up for the elevation gain we didn't make the previous day. An early start and a steep climb at times to climb inside the Zingaro Reserve, one of the most important natural paradises on the whole island. Sea, sun, water, land, rock, hiking through this incredible area of the Mediterranean is wonderful!

Altitude difference: 400 meters over 16 kilometers

Last day of trekking :( We have to leave early because by lunch we have to be in Segesta where, for those who have the time, a visit to one of the most important and well-preserved Hellenic temples in Sicily is a must. The tour ends here, with the sea, nature and flavors of Sicily in our hearts, we return each to our own homes.

From Segesta it is possible to take the train or bus that in a short time takes you to the airports of Trapani or Palermo from where you can fly back home.
