Italy Charity Challenges

Mind-blowing natural beauty, world-famous cuisine and culture, romantic cities, rustic villages and rich history everywhere you turn—it’s easy to see how Italy has gained its reputation as one of Europe’s premier destinations. With all of this plus a host of walking, cycling and mountaineering adventures on offer, Italy could be the perfect choice for your next charity challenge.

Raise money for your favourite cause as you trek the snow-covered high passes, scenic valleys and flower-strew meadows of the Italian Alps, circumnavigating the spectacular Mont Blanc or tackling a mountaineering course and climb on Gran Paradiso.

Hike the dramatic limestone peaks of the Dolomites, sail the Amalfi Coast or walk between the five famous fishing villages of the Cinque Terre.

Cycle the scenic back roads to Venice or take a Food Lover’s tour of Italy from Parma to Rome, sampling the very best in Italian cuisine as you walk along some of the most picturesque sections of the ancient Via Francigena pilgrim’s trail.

Our charity challenge experts can create a customised itinerary for your group or can match you with one of our upcoming challenges. Get in touch today and start planning your Italian adventure for a cause!

A custom made itinerary is the ultimate way to see the world how YOU want. They are created especially for you, giving you complete freedom to choose what you want to see, where you want to go and when you want to do it. If you love our current itineraries but want to customise it privately as a couple, a group of friends, family, club, business or school, you have the freedom to add or remove as many elements as you like to suit the interests of your group. Alternatively, you can start with a blank canvas and create a new and exciting itinerary from scratch! Our well-travelled consultants can give you firsthand suggestions and eliminate any uncertainty with trip planning to ensure you maximise the quality of your experience and get truly off the beaten track. Simply email, phone or visit us to start planning your dream adventure.


No Fees for Charities

Unlike many other charity challenge providers, we do not charge charities service fees to operate a challenge, allowing you to raise more funds.

Custom Challenges

We offer you flexibility to customise a charity challenge to suit your needs and budget. Choose your own destination, departure date and charity.

Responsible Travel

For us it is important that our charity challenges protect the cultures and environments we visit - so sustainability is central to our planning.

Making Italy affordable

Trips only include what you need like accommodation, meals, bikes on cycle trips, luggage transfers, maps and route directions on self guided trips and an experienced local guide for group trips, as well as the peace of mind that comes with complete backup and support.

Travel with experienced mountain guides

Our guided walks in the mountain regions of Italy are led by bilingual, experienced professionals who know the region well. Every guide is first-aid trained and carry appropriate communication devices with them in case of an emergency.


 

Support of local businesses

Whenever possible, we offer hospitality in family run accommodation, purchase food in local markets and dine in small restaurants.

Employment of local guides

We respect and abide by the working standards required by the Italian law, operating with a strategy that involves employees in our decision making process and allowing them to enjoy a profit share arrangement.

Reducing waste

Our Waste Management Policy encourages our travellers to take their own reusable water bottles, coffee cups and reusable stuff sacks to avoid single use plastics. In the mountains of the Pyrenees and Mont Blanc our local partners reduce the amount of packaging taken on tour and ensure all waste is carried out from refuges that do not have road access to help dispose of it properly.

Supporting local

In the regions that we travel tourism is the main source of income for many local people. We support them by only working with local family run hotels and suppliers so your money supports the community that hosts you.

Paddock to Plate

The paddock to plate across Europe is one we encourage by choosing to work with accommodations that source produce from local farms. This provides you with fresher meals and ensures your money directly assists local economies.
