For cyclotourism lovers, the Costa dei Trabocchi is a continuous thrill as you travel along the coast cycle path pedaling towards Molise. For lovers of trekking and boating, the Tremiti islands are a natural paradise nestled in the Gargano National Park - they are an almost obligatory destination. Due to their particular morphology and always mild climatic conditions, they are a favorite area especially for MTB enthusiasts who, twelve months a year, find inlets and dirt roads that are ideal for their evolution. The five islands, located off the Adriatic coast of the Gargano, in Puglia, are in fact five jagged strips of land, veritable corners of paradise intact and rich in naturalistic beauties. In these evocative views of the splendid Gargano coast, cycle tourism is considered by institutional bodies to be the ideal format for respecting the beauty and integrity of the Apulian archipelago which, not surprisingly, is carefully protected by the authorities of the National Park. The five small islands (3 square kilometers in total) 12 miles from the Gargano coast and 24 from the Molise coast, are a naturalistic asset, but also a paradise for diving and for those who love nature and the sea, whose color , with its thousand shades, it recalls the Caribbean Sea.

1st day: Francavilla al Mare

Arrival in Francavilla al Mare (the gateway to the Trabocchi coast), meeting with the guide, briefing and bike test. Experiential dinner and overnight stay

2nd Day: From Francavilla al Mare to Fossacesia (Abruzzo Bike)

First stop along the Via Verde dei Trabocchi, along the old railway track today transformed into the Abruzzese Bike to Coast. The path alternates dirt with slightly beaten sections. You ride with the magnificence of the Adriatic Sea on the left and the Theatine hills on the right. We will meet the Trabocchi, old fishing huts, which will accompany us to Fossacesia, where we will go up to admire the view from the terrace of the Abbey of San Giovanni in Venere. We will arrive at the hotel and then enjoy a nice swim in the Adriatic. In the evening, an experiential dinner on the Trabocco in the middle of the sea. Overnight.

KM stage: 50

Difference in altitude: 600

Day 3: From Fossacesia to Termoli (Molise Bike)

Today we will cycle between history (old royal sheep track) and nature (Punta Aderci reserve and Punta Penna in Vasto, pine forest of Petacciato marina, marine dunes, surrounding hills), for a flat path that will lead us to leave Abruzzo to immerse ourselves in Molise crossing the province of Campobasso and reach Termoli, the most important town on the Molise coast. The small ancient village, one of the most beautiful in Italy, stands on a rocky promontory overlooking the sea, with the Cathedral in the center, one of the most beautiful examples of Romanesque in Molise, which preserves the relics of the patron saint St. Bass. Dinner in the village with the famous Brodetto Termolese and overnight stay

KM stage: 59

Difference in altitude: 450

4th Day: Ferry to Tremiti and visit of the island by boat (Puglia Trekk & Boat)

Transfer by ferry from the port of Termoli to the Tremiti Islands. Approximately 1 hour of travel. The five small islands (3 square kilometers in total) 12 miles from the Gargano coast and 24 from the Molise coast, are a naturalistic asset, but also a paradise for diving and for those who love nature and the sea, whose color , with its thousand shades, it recalls the Caribbean Sea. We will arrive in Tremiti and reach the hotel to arrange the bags. The day will be dedicated to visiting the islands, by boat, in search of the most beautiful coves to take a bath in the crystal clear waters. Dinner and overnight stay

Walking: 1 h

Difference in altitude: 100

5th Day: Tremiti, San Domino Island and Caprara by Trekk & Boat

San Domino, covered with Aleppo pines and Mediterranean scrub, is the main island. It houses some hotels, villages and clubs and is particularly suitable for trekking excursions even with good technical routes. Caprara, an uninhabited island, where herring gulls nest, dotted with caper plants is a paradise for divers. It is worth going there for a dip in the beautiful Cala dei Turchi. The day will pass between TREKKING and RIB. Dinner and overnight stay

Walking: 2.5 H Dinghy the rest of the day

Difference in altitude: 150

6th Day: Tremiti, San Nicola Island and Cretaccio by Trekk & Boat

If you go along the islands you will discover the numerous coves, caves and bays. Of the five, only four can be visited. San Nicola, a bastion of white rock with some towers and a fortress, has among its beauties Cala degli Schiavoni, Cala Diamante and Cala Tamariello, the crocodile cave and Cala Tramontana. We will also visit Cretaccio which, in fact, is a rock, but is much loved by those who practice diving. Pianosa, on the other hand, has been inaccessible since 1989, as it is an integral marine reserve. We will spend the day hiking in TREKKING and visiting the caves in a RIB. Dinner and overnight stay

Walking: 2.5 H Dinghy the rest of the day

Difference in altitude: 150

7th day: Departure from Tremiti

After breakfast at the hotel, departure by ferry to Termoli and then to the respective return destinations.

What To Bring

The right attitude: with the right attitude you are ready to face everything! Whether you are leaving for a tour in freedom, as a group, as a couple, with your family, the right attitude is the first thing to put in your backpack, leaving your "thoughts" at home!
A robust and “trusted” bicycle. It is essential to start with the right vehicle, suitable for facing days of intense use on all kinds of roads ... without falling apart!

Maybe your beloved city bike is not the right vehicle for this task? Do not be afraid!

With us you can always rent a comfortable bicycle suited to your needs and the chosen route. But even those who do not want to abandon their faithful vehicle are welcome! Finally, if you really don't want TO WORK too hard… we always have E-Bikes available.
Waterproof jacket AND pants, sun protection.

We can organize everything FOR your trip… but aihmè we can't do anything for the time. So keep an eye on the weather forecast and always carry a jacket / cape and waterproof trousers, sunscreen cream and several layers of clothing suitable for the period (plan to dress "onion").

Sportswear

Plan on cycling pants or underwear (padded) when you get off the bike at the end of the day you will be happy with them! Prefer long trousers for trekking with high socks and of suitable material according to the season. Especially if you have chosen a mountain tour, do not forget a large and comfortable backpack, with the necessary to face every adversity and lots of water. (water bottle, headgear, gloves, changing clothes, glasses, etc.)

Sports shoes and helmet

Comfortable sports shoes for cycling and short hikes, waterproof trekking or snow shoes. The use of a helmet is not mandatory in all countries, but for your own safety, it is better not to get on the saddle without adequate head protection. Especially for the little ones!

BIKELIFE live your passion, was born with the intention of PROMOTING the TERRITORY with BIKE (bicycle tourism) and TREKKING, as very valid elements and tools of territorial knowledge and promotion.

Going by bicycle and / or on foot in your free time, for a simple day trip or for a holiday, is beautiful and fun, it allows you to do some healthy movement and, if in nice company, to socialize. You immerse yourself in nature, slowly discover the riches of the territory, visit the natural, cultural and artistic beauties. There are pleasant and unexpected encounters with locals or other hikers, tasting the local eno-gastronomic specialties. For everyone, perhaps after having dissolved a bit of "rust", it also becomes a very pleasant physical experience, for the more "sporty" it is a great challenge and fun to progressively lengthen kilometers and altitudes.

And the more you have, the more you put.

These are certainly (but if we want many others), the "elements" that give personal pleasure and therefore "passion" to carry out, at all levels, this kind of activity that BIKELIFE obviously "advertises" in order to entice people who do not they still tried them. People who, among other things, …
