Why hiking?

Our values

 

Life is about choices and we did them!

 

Travelling with us means spending an alternative holiday far away from mass tourism.

We chose to travel as much sustainable as possible. We go on foot, with small group of people interested to merge nature and culture.

A certified guide will help every group of people to become aware travellers.

Il Ponticello is partner of Parco Naturale del Monte San Bartolo and of Riserva Naturale Statale Gola del Furlo in the Carta Europea del Turismo sostenibile Il trekking & noi.

-Break up routine and let the mind free from anxiety and concerns;

-Meet new people, share adventures enriching our personal wealth of experiences;
