From Cornacchino to Lake Bolsena up to meet the Via Francigena and the ancient Via Cassia; we travel long stretches around the lake, sometimes alongside the banks, sometimes on the hills, enjoying the splendid views. Arriving on the fourth day of travel we leave the shores of Lake Bolsena to arrive in the evening at the smaller and wilder Lake of Mezzano. From here we continue to the Etruscan Archaeological Park of the Città del Tufo, Sorano and the Via Cava di San Rocco until we arrive at the Cornacchino in the evening.

mountain paths, ancient Etruscan roads cut deep into the tuff rock, country roads and dirt roads

Altitude:

Maximum. 860 m. minimum 250 m. above sea level

The stages:

Each stage lasts about 5 hours shared between the morning (longer ride) and the afternoon.

Is prepared in the morning and is taken to destination by mini-bus or carried in the saddlebags.

Dinner and breakfast:

Night-time:

Accommodation is in double rooms, single room if available on request

Transfer:

By minibus, we carry the luggage. The bus may be used for some of the transfers.

Riding gear:

Your riding gear should be comfortable and most importantly, should not be brand new (especially footwear), since new gear often holds unpleasant surprises. The footwear should be comfortable not only for riding but also for walking, with a hard sole that permits good contact between foot and stirrup. Footwear with a slick sole and very tight clothing should be avoided. The trousers should be comfortable and robust. You may also need a raincoat, a hat for protection, a portable light, a small knife, swimwear, and a sleeping bag; you should bring along a light jumper for the evening. The belongings together should not be too bulky since there is limited space on the transport vehicle and in the saddlebags. Please avoid suitcases with a hard surface.
Your guide can provide basic medication and will take along a first-aid kit on the trek. Any health conditions that require special medication should be brought to the attention of the guide before departure on the trek. Allergy sufferers should bring their own medicines, as those who suffer allergies from common medications.

Please note:

The program may be modified at any time due to prevailing weather conditions or for technical reasons.
