Paths and Cycle Routes

Did you know that in Calabria there are 6 Paths mapped and recognised by MiC and CAI? Set off and you will discover that crossing Calabria on foot is a unique experience that will make you appreciate all the charm of a region with a green heart and a blue profile, from north to south, from sunrise on the Ionian Sea to sunset on the Tyrrhenian Sea.

The Paths of Calabria are dedicated to those seeking an introspective and emotional travel experience, to be savoured at a slow pace. What to expect? Evocative itineraries through unspoilt nature, historic villages, culture and extraordinary landscapes, Mediterranean scents and flavours, marked by centuries-old woods and olive groves, where you can breathe in history and your gaze wanders beyond the sea.

Choose from the proposals the Path of Calabria that suits you!

In addition to the Paths in Calabria recognised by the MiC and CAI, there are a number of "minor" but equally fascinating routes.

These include the Giaochimite Path, centred on the figure of the abbot and theologian Gioacchino da Fiore, one of the great Calabrian minds that have marked the history of western thought, and the Magna Grecia Path, which links the provinces of Crotone and Cosenza in the name of the "conscious path" and another emblematic figure, the philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras. 

  • Gioachimita Path - The Gioacchino Path retraces the salient stages that characterised the abbot's life, works and places, in an itinerary between nature and spirituality that crosses the provinces of Catanzaro and Cosenza in 5 stages (https://ilcamminodigioacchino.it/)

An immersive experience, in close contact with nature, which along a 545 km route offers an unparalleled variety of landscapes, to be enjoyed with all the senses and breathed in at the top of one's lungs.

The Parks Cycle Route crosses the 3 Calabrian National Parks (Pollino, Sila and Aspromonte) and a Regional Park (Serre Vibonesi), as well as numerous Reserves and Protected Areas, each with its own peculiarities of flora and fauna. A landscape heritage that combines the territory's biodiversity with breathtaking views overlooking the sea, without neglecting the charm of the ancient villages set in the mountains.

The Val di Neto Cycle-pedestrian Route is the perfect "green" infrastructure for those wishing to discover the municipalities of the Val di Neto, the river that crosses part of the province of Cosenza and that of Crotone, also giving its name to a prized PGI wine.

The Val di Neto cycle and pedestrian route winds for a total length of 38 km, touching six municipalities in the province of Crotone (Caccuri, Rocca di Neto, Santa Severina, Belvedere Spinello, Scandale and Strongoli) and combining the naturalistic charm of the valley, which reaches the Ionian coast, with the splendour of archaeological sites, ghost towns, castles and some of Italy's most beautiful villages.
