To reach the top of the mountain by foot is a real outdoor activity. Together with our English speaking guide you will hike up to the top of the mountain. The journey will start from the little village of Poggio and ends in the old capital town Marciana. Both of the mountain villages are well worth a visit and you will see the real Elba life since there are not many tourists.

The hike will take about 9 hours in total. (depending on the level of fitness from the attendees) The 9 hours is included with transport to and from Lacona.

Are you interested to book a private tour? That is also possible, the benefit from a private tour is that we can have more time to take pictures, get more inside information of the island and there will be no waiting for other attendees.

The details of the private tour will be arranged in consultation.
