Explore the mountain peaks behind the coast on this 2 day trek and enjoy the local rustic hospitality.
We start from the seaside village Borgio Verezzi, by the train station.
We traverse over Monte Grosso and follow the undulating trail over rocky outcrops, through villages, olive groves and macchia shrubland.
Famous for it’s hospitality and amazing food, we relax and rest admiring the vast panoramas over the Mediterranean sea. The shower water is hot and the log fires keep us cosy.
The hearty dinner often includes homemade pasta, focaccia or bread baked on the day and a selection of tasty dishes in their full Italian set menu.
After enjoying the breakfast at the hut, we climb a rocky ridge up to Monte Carmo 1389m in altitude. The entire climb enjoys stunning views over the Mediterranean sea and as we climb, we start to get glimpses of the taller peaks of the Maritime Alps.
We descend the wild trails past Monte Ravinet and drop down to Toirano mediaeval village. Final stretch either by bus or walking along a small road following the riverbed into Borghetto Santo Spirito from where we take the train back to Borgio Verezzi or Finale Ligure.
It is possible to do a guided visit the Toirano carstic caves and the prehistory museum.
