Tour Description

Meet with our local guide at your arrival in Cavo; after the safety briefing grab your walking sticks and start hiking following the easy mule track that covers the first section of the path surrounded by the plants and flowers of the Mediterranean scrub vegetation: cistus, strawberry trees, wild lavender… Continue walking uphill touching the former mine area and take a look at the stunning views over the east side of Elba; break for lunch along the path.

You’ll soon reach the hilltop town of Rio Elba where you’ll have time to explore this quaint medieval village. Transfer to Rio Marina to end up your adventure tasting a delightful craft made gelato. It is already time to go! Shuttle back to Cavo port and sail back to the mainland.

Great Hike!
Great hike, and a great way to safely explore the island. I really felt like I was getting to know so much more of the island.
