How great is having the chance to hike in Finale Ligure and Finale Outdoor Region 365 days a year?
You don't have to put your passion on hold for months. There are just as many hiking trails to enjoy during the winter months as during summer. For example, how about the shade and cool air of a majestic beechwood forest on a hot summer day?
In Finale Ligure, you can start your hike directly from Finalborgo, the heart of Finale Ligure's outdoor activities, and in no time, you will find yourself in a completely different environment, evocative and far from the crowds. Or you can walk with a sea view on the marvellous Sentiero del Pellegrino (Pilgrim's Path), admire the Baia dei Saraceni (Saracens' Bay) from above, and breathe deeply the scent of the sea. When it gets too hot, don't miss the Barbottina Forest, a vast beechwood that provides shade in summer, beautiful colours in autumn, and even snow in winter. Would you never have imagined being able to snowshoe just 30 minutes from Finale Ligure and Pietra Ligure shores?
In the Finalese area, you can also reach a sea-view mountain hut to enjoy excellent food and refresh after a nice walk.
Learn about the local flora with our guides, relax and listen to nature on a forest bathing excursion, walk overlooking the sea, or climb to the top of Monte Carmo, the region's highest peak.
If this still isn't enough, remember that man has inhabited Finale Ligure and the Finale area for over 34,000 years, and here you can find world-famous archaeological sites. Discover them during an Archeotrekking hike with MUDIF - Museo Diffuso del Finale.
Are you fascinated by caves? There are many in Finale Ligure, and you can visit some of them while hiking: Arma delle Manie, the Pollera and the Strapatente Cave, and of course, Grotta dell'Edera, one of the most famous sites in our territory, a true spectacle of nature that you can’t miss!
