This hiking weekend is dedicated to discovering a different Elba ...
The largest of the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago has much more to offer us the usual beaches - yet wonderful! - that we are used to seeing on postcard.
The Scoglio, as is called by the islanders, will surprise you for its colors, so true and vivid, for the green that draws almost all its surface, for its so mild climate, for its intense fragrances of Mediterranean scrub , and how, within a handful of miles, you walk from the sea to the chestnut woods.
We will stay at San Piero, one of Elba's oldest villages , nestled on the slopes of Mount Capanne, amid enormous smooth granite outcrops, so beautiful to induce the Romans to come up here to procure their columns for their temples.
We will be guests of Jade, in a small and pretty hotel where we will also taste one of the best home cooking kitchens on the Island.
For all three days we will be guided by myself, Carlotta, Hiking Guide and Guide of the National Park of the Tuscan Archipelago. Graduated in Natural Sciences, living and working on the Island for several years now, working regularly with kids from both Italian and foreign schools and tourists.

DAY 2: Saturday
Trekking San Piero - Pomonte: the south coast
After a rich breakfast we will set out on our way, leaving behind the old village of San Piero. It will be a long but pleasant hike, where we will walk on the southern slope of the Monte Capanne massif, immersed in the scents of the Mediterranean scrub, tracing the traces of ancient shepherds, farmers and cavers, who have lived here for thousands of years.
Comfortably sitting in the sun on some smooth granite rock, we will eat a bit of the excellent crush that we have taken in the morning at Mara's bakery, and, always heading westward, we will cross half the deep valleys of such unusual landscapes. And between old terraces and abandoned goats, we are finally in Pomonte or Post Montem, as they called it the ancient, lovely village that literally is "beyond the mountain", squatting on the sea, and at the end of a long, green valley.
A bit of relax on the beach and we will be ready to return to the base (private transfer). Dinner and overnight stay.

Trekking San Piero - Procchio - from the ridges to the sea
