Italy’s New Coast-to-coast Hiking Trail Is Filled With Mountains and Beaches to Explore

The Italian region of Calabria is bookmarked by two seas with mountains and beaches in between. And now a new trail has opened that will allow hikers to explore Calabria from coast to coast and experience the stunning nature that it’s known for.

The Kalabria Coast to Coast Trail connects the town of Soverato on the Ionian Sea to the town of Pizzo on the Tyrrhenian Sea. The trail is about 34 miles long with a range of landscapes and difficulty levels from medium to medium-high, so people of differing abilities and athleticism can enjoy it.

The trail was founded by the Kalabria Trekking Association in an effort to create “an emotional and sensorial journey” to the heart of Calabria, where hikers could discover the region’s local traditions and more. Along the path there is a wide variety of plants and wildlife for nature lovers to spot, while history buffs will appreciate Calabria’s past as part of Magna Graecia, giving the region more than a millennium of history and culture to learn about.

The Kalabria Coast to Coast trail is divided into three main stops averaging nearly 12.5 miles each. Hikers will be able to contact Kalabria Trekking volunteers by phone in case they are in need of assistance at any point throughout their trip. Tourists are also encouraged to check in and out of the trail so their trip can be supervised and they can easily be found in case of an emergency.
