Nature, sport and freedom: these are the fundamental ingredients of an unforgettable outdoor experience, of a responsible journey in contact with nature, surrounded by wonderful landscapes, rich in history and archaeology.
There are many Italian tourist destinations where it is possible to enjoy the outdoors, and today more than ever, following the health emergency that has hit the world, people are looking for travel solutions that allow them to stay outdoors, in safety, doing physical activity.
For those who want to spend a holiday on the move, at a slow pace, to get away from the routine and to rediscover their physical and mental wellbeing in nature, Finale Ligure and its territory – the “Capital of the Outdoors” – offer a wide range of mountain bike trails, climbing crags, hiking trails and sea activities.
But it is not only this that makes the Finale area so special and unique: here, at every step, you can breathe in the very strong link that these places have with history.
The first traces of human presence in this area date back 350,000 years: a past that has left important evidence, such as the Pietra del Finale, an enormous calcified sedimentary deposit that emerged from the sea, to be discovered along unique paths. Not just physical activity then, but a fascinating territory that shows step by step a historical wealth of inestimable value.
So, backpack, water bottle and a pair of hiking boots: the Finale area offers an infinite variety of open-air trails for expert hikers and others suitable for everyone. What is certain is that there is no need for excessively long or demanding treks to quickly find yourself catapulted into an ancient past, immersed in a landscape rich in plateaus, valleys, vertiginous rock faces, hills, caves and rich vegetation.
