Responsible and sustainable tourism

We believe that each of our trips should leave a mark to those who choose to travel with us, with the wish to come back home peaceful and feel better, having just lived a truly authentic experience. We know that to achieve something like this, our commitment and that of our collaborators, the facilities involved, the guided visits and the social projects that we propose to you, play a central role. This is why all of our itineraries are carefully and personally designed by us. We select accommodation, restaurants, trattorias and partners, but more importantly we place our focus on the environment. We believe that local culture and traditions make our trips educational, social experiences and only by fully participating this will help you understand the values of the places visited. In respect of this, we make the most of “slow” mobility by walking, cycling and using public transport whenever possible. We are sure that together by using this way of travel with cultural tourism, we can contribute to the development of a habit of sustainability in the broad sense also in the territories we propose. Following these ideals, we want to give a small but concrete contribution to our territory, committing ourselves with passion and dedication to meet the expectations of those who choose to travel with us.

Identity on the move

Slow Active Tours comes from decades of experience in sustainable and responsible tourism. It was born from our love for culture and passion for local traditions, from the study of our territory and a deep respect for nature. We personally try and test the routes that we design, explore the places by bike and on foot, select the facilities and our partners, and look for the best places to taste local flavours. We prefer to travel according to the rhythm of nature, living it in full: a nice walk, a bike ride, a swim, using the train for longer stretches. Our travel packages are full of options for everyone; each itinerary aims to be as easy as possible, whith safety as a priority. They include everything you need to make your experience comfortable, leaving you to feel free to travel in complete safety. During the trip, we will always be with you welcoming you at your arrival and satisfying all your needs in accordance with our ethics and always ready to solve any unexpected problems which may occur along the way.

Activity

Cycling

Cycling holidays

For Slow Active Tours, travel by bike means knowing the territory and enjoying it. And so we study and refine our routes on secondary roads with low traffic between traditional dry stone walls and olive trees, wheat fields and rolling green expanses, between the blue sea and the sky, designing safe and accessible routes.Cycling Tours

Walking

Walking in nature

Trails that wind through protected reserves, along cliffs overlooking the sea, on pristine beaches or on the route of ancient pilgrimages. Led by our guide or in complete independence, you’ll be immersed in unique natural environments. We suggest itineraries for everyone, along which, you will learn secrets and stories of the landscape around you. We walk slowly, to get reacquainted with nature and with the passage of time but also to rediscover the joys of sharing a journey.Walking tours

Discovery

Travel and discover

It is our alternative way of doing cultural tourism, always paying attention to the responsible and sustainable aspect. Learn about the area in a simple and fun way, discovering small villages and social projects, tasting wine and sampling the culinary delights of the places we visit, and travelling mainly by using local public transport. Another way to enjoy the scenery, relax and be in direct contacts with the locals.Discovery tours

Snorkeling

Diving culture

If you're looking for something else than lying under an umbrella on a crowded beach, Slow Active Tours offers you a different beach holiday! Imagine immersing yourself in the blue waters of the Mediterranean, discovering the underwater beauty wearing flippers and goggles, or kayaking. Besides the sea, a mix of art, culture and history to discover local values and traditions that should not be forgotten. Ready to dive??Snorkeling tours
