Embark on a non-group,self-guided walking holiday in Sicily, staying in accommodation of character. We arrange luggage transfers and provide you with our highly informative route notes so that you can explore at your own pace.
A walking holiday in Sicily will captivate and delight you, thanks to the sweeping views which stretch for miles, and the richly varied flora. In the true spirit of a Slow holiday, stop as frequently as you like to take it all in – you’re not part of a group, and have no luggage to carry (we sort out that and all the other arrangements, as well as providing step-by-step route notes), so take your time…
When it comes to walking in Sicily, we offer a choice between the westernmost reaches, including the Egadi Islands, and the central Madonie Mountains. Both holidays explore peaceful rugged slopes and offer commanding coastal views – from the Madonie Mountains you can gaze north across the sea to the Aeolian Islands, while the wonders of the west coast include the Zingaro Nature Reserve.
To give you a good idea of how we can tailor our trips to your individual requirements, take a look at the section of the website specifically devoted to travellers from outside the UK.

Are our walking holidays in Sicily right for you?
Our walking holiday in Sicily’s Madonie Mountains explores remote slopes and involves ascents and descents each day, while our walking holiday in western Sicily and the Egadi Islands walk takes place on paths that can be little-trodden and rocky in places. Our grading system below should help you decide if these holidays are right for you. We’ll be happy to add in an extra night or two if you’d like an occasional rest day.
Generally easy walking with few ascents / descents, but perhaps the occasional long day.
Easy-to-moderate walking with some ascents / descents, and occasional longer days.
Moderate walking on varied terrain, with some long days and regular ascents / descents.
Moderate-to-challenging walking on more rugged terrain with significant ascents / descents on most days. Compass skills may be required (check the individual holiday).
Challenging hikes, featuring long days with significant ascent / descent on challenging terrain. Compass skills may be required.
Choice of easier or harder routes, so that you can tailor most days to your requirements.
