Trekking in Basilicata

Trekking and hiking tours in Basilicata

We are a lucanian tour operator comprised of professional hiking guides, specializing in eco-tourism and outdoor activities.

Since 2015, our mission has been to rekindle people’s bond with the untamed nature both inside and outside of them. We achieve this by organizing trips, excursions, and experiences in pristine and lesser-known natural settings.

Basilicata is not yet a mainstream tourist destination, and we are dedicated to keeping it that way. Our trips are designed for small groups, facilitating personal connections among participants.

We pay utmost attention to the impact our actions have on ecosystems. We strive to support the local economy and what we call ‘human destinations,’ involving other guides, accommodations, artists, and artisans. We will introduce you to unique individuals!

In 2022, our catalog features three types of trips: fixed-base trekking, itinerant trekking with bus transfers, hiking tours.”

Fixed-base trekking

You will stay in the same accommodation, and daily excursions in the surroundings are planned. We have three options: in Maratea, in the Pollino National Park, and in the Apennine Lucano Park, exploring the lesser-known and undiscovered interior of Basilicata.

Itinerant trekking

The Basilicata Cross-Country Adventure in 8 days. We will explore Basilicata, traveling from Matera to Maratea, passing through the Pollino National Park, Dolomiti Lucane, Calanchi, and the Apennine Lucano.

Hiking tours

We offer 3 hiking tours on uncharted and unmarked routes, providing luggage transport for a light walking experience.

Among our offerings, ‘Il Canto degli Uomini Liberi‘, a 6-day circuit in rural Basilicata, the historical pilgrimage to the Madonna Nera of Viggiano, and the ‘Appennino Mare,’ a 5-day journey from the summit of Mount Sirino (2000 meters) to the sea in Maratea!

I'm writing this review as one of the group leaders of a trek organized among friends in the land of Lucania. [...] Accompanied by knowledgeable local guides, we saw everything possible in the short time available. From daily excursions to packed lunches and evening dinners... ***** stars!!

Under the guidance of Rocco, our journey became authentic—a series of deliberate steps, in harmony with the present, while also listening to the echoes of the past and hoping for a future filled with respect and love for the environment. An excellent journey indeed.

An extraordinary experience, as special as the encounter with a land through the passion of those who have lived in it for generations, loving it and reinventing it. [...] It was a relaxing journey through beautiful landscapes, a harmonious path of 'freedom'.
