Geography of Italian Riviera

The Coast of Mediterranean Sea in the North of Italy and more specifically in Liguria is pretty unique. The mountains rises out from the coast line just few kilometers from the Sea. It is a very nice area where to hike with a good amount of trails and beautiful scenery. As the sea is very busy in summer and pretty hot, the ideal is to go hiking in the higher Maritime Alps(Parco Alpi Mairttime) where the weather is chillier. The area is instead perfect during the winter and mid seasons such as spring and autumn. The Sea brings mild wind and is perfect for hiking in this Mediterranean Riviera Hiking Area. Also we go guide in the Cote d’Azur where, starting from an apartment near Nice, we can explore the different beauties of the magnificent French Riviera.


Wildlife in Riviera Region

Even if Liguria is a very antropized environment it is possible to find a different wildlife encounter. Foxes, rabbits, boars. pheasants and roe deers are the wild habitants of the coast line of the Mediterranean and we can meet them during our Riviera Hiking tours. If you go deep into the Ligurian Alps and in the Maritime Alps, we can find the typical Alpine wildlife such as marmots, chamois and even Ibex. In terms of birds, these hiking Riviera tours will give you the opportunity to spot peregrine falcon, seagull and other sea animals that are not possible to see in any other area proposed by Trekking Alps.


Accommodation in the Italian Riviera

It is possible to find different kind of accommodation in the Ligurian Alps. In the Alpi Marittime Park, as in the rest of the areas there are unguarded huts and mountain lodges(rifugi in Italiano). Along the coast of the Italian Riviera and French Riviera, hiking will end up in bed and breakfast in the small villages in the “entroterra”. These villages a little bit apart from the coast line, where every day life is still a bit slow and different than in the touristic coast line. Italian Riviera Hiking is an excellent opportunity to know forgotten villages of these area and enjoy both the sea and the mountains.
