The 3 Best Adventure Holidays in Italy

One of the world’s top tourist destinations, there is so much to see and experience when you choose Italy as your holiday spot. If you’re looking for some adventure on your next trip abroad, then Italy can give you just that

To help you decide where in Italy you should visit, we’ve picked out three of our favourite adventure holiday spots to inspire you for your trip:

1. Camping in Sicily

Situated right at the end of Italy’s ‘boot’, you can get all the glorious Mediterranean sunshine when you head to Sicily.

We think that one of the best ways to experience all the sights of the beautiful island is by camping. But not your traditional camping – you can camp in style and comfort with a self-catering holiday home from Eurocamp. With sites located in Sicily, you can feel closer to nature the luxurious way, as well as experiencing the best of the island’s lush mountains, beautiful ruins and tempting culinary delicacies.

2. Trekking in Matera

If you’re looking for a holiday where you can get closer to nature and wildlife, head to Parco della Murgia Materana in the Matera province. As well as plenty of opportunity to go on stunning treks, you can also explore all churches and monasteries with their complex cave networks and large underground chambers.

For thrill seekers, head to nearby mountain area, Basilicata, where you can try out the 80mph zipwire, also known as ‘Flight of the Angel’. This is perfect for enjoying unrivalled views of the stunning valley as you fly between the two mountain peaks.

3. Horse Riding in Sardinia

Horses are an emblem of the island of Sardinia and feature heavily in some of their best festivals, like the equine acrobatics at Sassari’s Cavalcata festival. So, where better to try your hand at horse riding!

Even if you’re a novice, there are many equestrian centres for people at all levels of skill, allowing you to explore the island in a unique way. Head to Horse Country to find the right riding package for you; its located right by the sea so it’s the perfect spot to also enjoy walks on the beach, as well as the spa facilities that are available.

If you like exploration and adventure on your holidays then you should book Italy for your next trip. From camping, to hiking and horse riding, you won’t be short of things to do to fill up your itinerary and these experiences will give you some amazing stories you’ll be telling for years to come.
