For every level there are many great tracks and routes here on Elba island. It is very important that when you make your booking you mention your level of experience so we can organise the right tracks and combine it with the right mountainbike guide.
It doesn't matter if you have experience with mountainbiking or not. We make sure that we create a challenging week that suits your level. For the beginners we organise a daily route that will be ride with one of our experienced guides. The routes will be ride in the morning so in the afternoon you can relax and enjoy the island. Our mountainbike guides will learn you the first steps of riding and during the tour they will give your more tips and tricks that will make sure that you will leave the island as an experienced mountainbiker. Please pay attention, it is important that you do have a good level of fitness, this has to do with the altitude meters that we do have to cycle during our routes. It is also possible to rent a mountainbike that will support you during your uphill climbs. ivm de hoogste meters die op Elba onvermijdelijk zijn. Het is echter ook mogelijk om een e-mountainbike te huren die je net wat meer ondersteuning zal geven de berg op!

How do I reach Elba?

The fastest way to reach Elba is by flying to Pisa and taking the train.
To look for the best tickets we recommend to go to the direct website of the airline company.

Please notice that when you book your flight you won't arrive later as 17:00 on Pisa airport. Otherwise you have to stay over for a night in Pisa. If so we work directly together with the Safe Stay hostel in Pisa what is reachable by foot from the airport and offers great comfortable rooms.
From Pisa Airport. The last direct train is leaving at 16:40. The last train with a transfer to the bus in Campiglia Marittima is leaving at 19:30. The last boat is leaving Piombino harbor at 22:30.
From Elba: The earliest that you could fly from Pisa Airport is 08:28. To be able to be on time for this flight you have to take the boat at 05:00.

From the airport in Pisa there is a good train connection to Piombino Marritima, from where the boat to Elba departs. We pick you up in the port of Portoferraio where the boat arrives. If you are coming with more people it could be an option to rent a car at Pisa airport this could be cheaper as many train tickets.
Cost train return ticket: €20 / €30.
Cost ferry ticket return €25 / €35 (By foot. With a car will be around €70 or €100 return).
