Our walking holidays in Sicily are based in the unspoilt west of the region and the Aeolian Islands, the volcanic archipelago in the Tyrrhenian Sea, just north of Sicily. Whether you prefer to explore independently or with a guide and a group of other walkers, we're sure to have a Sicily walking tour for you.
The stunning island of Sicily is a delight to discover on foot. Over 2,500 years of history have left an indelible impression on the landscape – waves of invaders including Phoenicians, Greeks, and Romans have helped to make Sicily the archaeological treasure house of Europe.
The pristine western coast is a region of tranquillity, with azure waters and picture-perfect sandy coves. Just off Trapani lies the Egadi Islands, which are a true walkers' paradise. When walking in Sicily, you'll see a fantastic mix of volcanoes and interesting towns, and taste delicious local cuisine. If you're ready to plan your next adventure, feel free to contact our friendly team of experts today.
We've hand-picked some of the most picturesque and scenic routes for our Sicily walking holidays - look at some of the locations below:
Our Secrets of Sicily walking trail takes you to the Zingaro Nature Reserve, where you'll wind your way through the wild fennel, pomegranate, and citrus trees. You'll find amazing viewpoints which overlook the beautiful coastline, and the reserve is home to around 40 bird species - perfect if you're an avid bird watcher, and even if you're not, who can resist watching rare Bonelli eagles and other birds of prey on the wing?
Marettimo, the most remote of the three Egadi islands, is an ideal destination for those who want to learn more about Sicilian history and culture. See where the Romans and Carthaginians fought the First Punic War in the second century BC, and visit the 12th-century Norman Castello di Punta Troia. Don't miss the stunning whitewashed houses that dot the landscape against a backdrop of shimmering, turquoise waters.
Book our Volcanoes of Sicily walk to island hop between the Aeolian Islands. Admire the spectacular Greek theatre of Taormina and visit Mount Etna, the largest active volcano in Europe. This Sicilian slice of paradise offers clear blue waters and volcanic beaches for those who fancy a refreshing swim en route.
This triple centre holiday explores the unspoilt north western tip of Sicily and the nearby Egadi islands. It's a relatively undiscovered region where highlights include pristine sandy beaches, coral-lined grottoes, ancient hill villages and marvellously preserved nature reserves.
Undoubtedly one of the most spectacular, varied and unique walks in our portfolio, taking in the beautiful Aeolian Islands as well as the immense and impressive Mount Etna - the largest active volcano in Europe!
