Trekking and Mountainbike in Umbria
Pietralunga, with its 150 square kilometers of forests, is an incredible source of natural attractionspartially easy to reach and partially still undiscovered.
The river Tiber, still young here, to quote the words of Plinius the Younger, draws a proportionate valley surrounded by a series of reliefs in an amphitheater,.
The main valley is marked by other small picturesque valleys nestled between green rolling hills.
Hiking through the recomended sites is not intended to be a simple exercise, but also a journey through the knowledge of the history and of the stories that this area tells; it is also catching the sounds, the fragrances, the colors of the places, because walking amplifyes the senses as we capture things that would otherwise be lost.
The encounter with churches, castles, old rural houses, and especially with the men and women who have inhabited the places continously during centuries helps us to connect the soul of the places themselves.
Whether you're a just casual walker whether you are a reckless trekker or mountainbiker, we can suggest you routes all of varying level of difficulty and lenght tailored to your personal requirements.
The tracks are all “rings” allowing you the the convenience to drive to the starting point ending back at your car.
