WINTER HIKING IN TUSCANY ADVENTURE HOLIDAY, DISCOVERING ITS SECRET COASTLINE. A MICRO ADVENTURE EXPLORING THE SANDY COASTS AND THE PROMONTORIES OF SOUTHERN TUSCANY

ANOTHER TIME, ANTOHER PLACE:
This Winter hiking in Tuscany adventure holiday implies
sandy beaches, sense of loneliness, ancient roman colonies and Etruscan remains. This is southern Tuscany during the winter season. We are certain that our winter hiking in Tuscany won’t let down connoisseur adventure lovers. However discovering this beautiful coast has to be done in a new way, like a microadventure in a wild and lonely place.

For this winter hiking in Tuscany adventure holiday we thus invented a special hiking companion, the armadillo.  We will use this man-hauled cart that will “float” on the sand and roll over the dirt roads with their all-terra wheels.

PentatlonEsplosoWe also like this season because talking to people and listening to their stories and anecdotes becomes possible only when the ratrace of high season is way over. When everything goes slower and there is time for reflection.
We designed our cart, called Armadillo, because we needed a new piece of equipment not existing on the market. Something designed to transport with ease a heavier load that one can bring with a normal backpack and, last but not least, on every type of terrain!

Our Armadillos can be transformed into a man-hauled cart, a rickshaw-style cart, a man-hauled sled (pulkka), a small towable boat, a bike cart and also into a backpack.

It will be possible to walk along the shores bringing with us whatever we need without the worry of having a heavy backpack: from dry clothes to a fine Chianti wine, from a complete photographic equipment to a “small library”.

 

FROM THE “LAST BEACH” TO PORTO ERCOLE

The most southern beach of Tuscany, this will be our starting point.
The WWF Oasis of Burano with its rich birdlife; the promontory of the Argentario (the “silver coast”) and the natural reserve of Tombolo of Feniglia are some of the most interesting places where the sandy coast and the wetlands permeate each other forming a unique environment.

More overnights will be possible without leaving the coast.

A coastline that is incredibly rich in history.  It will possible to see and, in some cases, to visit the ancient sighting towers regularly situated along the shore like the towers of Buranaccio and of Macchiatonda.  The roman colony of Cosa (founded in 273 B.C.) with its megalithic walls, the Etruscan necropolis or the Tagliata (Roman channel, II century B.C.) in Ansedonia.

Everywhere on the track it will be possible to discover the traces of history and the ruins of old civilizations!

Very nice and comfortable accommodation venues will be our final daily destination for a pleasant evening.
