The Mediterranean Riviera is a fabulous place, famous all over the world for its beauty.

The Mediterranean Sea is for sure the main protagonist with his marvellous sunsets and sunrises. Trekking Alps proposes a different way to live the Italian Riviera and even the French Riviera: hiking! Hiking in the Italian Riviera is a marvelous experience. In the innver part of the coast, just few kilometers from the beaches of Mediterranean Sea there are lots of paths and trails between olive trees and rosemary.

There are different way to enjoy hiking and Trekking in the Italian Riviera. We can come back every day in a Sea Side village in Liguria or we can make a moving trail and sleep every day in a different village of the Riviera.

It is also possible to organize the hike in a more mountain environment. The Parco delle Alpi Marittime, is just 1 hours from the Sea and from the highest peaks it is possible to spot the Mediterranean Sea. But nonetheless it is a complete mountain experience with wildife and everything.

Geography

The Coast of Mediterranean Sea in the North of Italy and more specifipally 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 if not in the more high Alpi Marittime Park where the weather is more chilly. The area is instead perfect during the sinter and mid seasons such as springand autumn. The Sea brings wind and is perfect for hiking in this Mediternnanean Riviera Hiking Area. Also we go guide in the Cote d’Azur where, starting from an apartment near Nice, we can explore the different beauty of the magnificent French Riviera.

Wildlife

Wildlife is not a specialy here. Even in Val Grande, which is one of the wider wilderness area in Europe, the wildlife is not so easy to spot. Birdwatachers would be happy to discover eagles, different species of woodpeaker and many others. By the way if you do not dedicate your day in spotting birds you’ll just see a row deer in the woods at max. Some chamois are also present in the higher part of the Val Grande National Park. In the other valleys, from Val Sesia to the more remote northern valley of Domodossola, you can find the usual wildife that you find everywhere in the area beaten by Trekking Alps. Ibexes, Chamois, Deers and, if you are very lucky, wolves.

Accommodation

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 shelters or rifugio. 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”, villages a little bit apart from the coast line, where still the life is a bit slow and different than in the touristic coast line. Hiking in the Italian Riviera is an excellent opportunity to know forgotten villages.
