Featured trips & expertise
On this week-long adventure, you'll sail and cycle around two crown jewels of Europe's islands: Sardinia and Corsica. The landscapes here are the stuff of Mediterranean dreams, where sky-blue waters turn crystal clear as they reach the soft white sands of emerald coasts. Then there's the countryside, which abounds with landmarks both natural and man-made, from bronze-age ruins to the great granite rocks shaped by wind over millennia into unique formations.
Sardinians greet each other by saying, “A kent’annos” — “May you live to be a hundred.” Discover the landscapes that inspire these words on this incredible 12-day itinerary. Eat and drink your way through Sardinia's incredible food and heart-healthy red wine, walk alongside shepherds on rocky hillsides, and haggle for your lunch in bustling marketplaces. From stunning beaches to quiet towns this trip has it all.
Spend five days exploring the art and cuisine of Italy's Tuscany region. Discover Rennaissance art in Florence, browse bustling markets for fresh produce and cured meats and stroll through narrow medieval streets to see the 1,000-year-old Ponte Vecchio bridge. Head to the Tuscan countryside to visit Siena, tour a typical Chianti winery, and see the medieval Monteriggioni fortress. End your visit with a trip to see the famous leaning tower of Pisa and Lucca's historic city walls.
Take a quick spin through the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance with this five-day Tuscan cycling tour. This challenging bike route will take you through the medieval villages and cypress-spotted hills of the Tuscan wine region . Go from Florence to Siena as you take in the region's food, historic castles, and sun-kissed landscapes, accompanied, of course, by a good glass or two.
Soak up the sunshine and go off the beaten track on this 8-day cycling expedition around Puglia in the heel of Italy's boot. You'll bike to lesser-known towns and villages on this moderate-level ride, pedaling through lush inland plateaux and down the coastline on mostly flat terrain. Enjoy southeastern Italy's historic sites, flavorful food, and natural beauty on this active tour.

Hiking in southern dolomites, Italy - Sep 24 - Sep 28, 2019
David was very attentive to our requests and needs from the start. We wanted a hut experience in the Dolomites and he suggested a beautiful trip. We had a wonderful accommodation at Hotel Pider in Wengen, and then two days hiking to and back from Rufugio Fanes. The hikes had a lot of variety in addition to the beauty that is the Dolomites. The food was delicious and the hosts were welcoming in both places. We had several questions for David before the trip, which he answered promptly and graciously. We found his service very professional yet friendly.
Cortona adventure, Italy - May 21 - May 25, 2019

The lodging at Pieve a Salti was comfortable, the entire staff gracious, the food... read more
