Það sem verður gert

We will meet up in Manarola, and after a quick visit of the village, which will be nice and quiet early in the morning, we will start our adventure by taking a deep breath and hiking up to Volastra, a wonderful hamlet as far off the beaten path as you can get in this area. The hike is straight uphill and it will make you sweat, we promise! There will be plenty of visual rewards along the path, though, because you will get the most spectacular views of Manarola and the sea, almost like you were a drone (only without flying off the rocks!). Then, after approximately 1 hour, we will reach our destination. And there, only there, will you feel like you have earned your well deserved wine tasting. We will drink the wine of one of the greatest local winemakers right on his vineyard while looking at the Mediterranean directly below, almost touching the sky and rejoicing in the power of nature.

After the wine tasting, our experience is finished. From Volastra, you can choose to continue on the trail to Corniglia, the next Cinque Terre town, go back down the trail to Manarola, or take the eco-bus down to Manarola at a cost of 2.50 per person.
Other things to note
Rain can be serious in the Cinque Terre, so if it is raining too heavily, or if the National Park issues a weather alert, we won't be able to do the hike. In that case, we will take the eco-bus up to Volastra at an additional cost of 2.50 per person.

Ciao everybody! We are a mixed couple: I, Erica, am Italian (born and raised in Parma) and Doug, my hubby, is an American who decided to spend his life in this crazy country.
One day we decided to leave everything behind and move our family to the Cinque Terre, which means that we see this stunning place through the eyes of people who know how lucky they are to be here!
We know every inch of every town and trail, but the real thrill of this experience is that we have the inside track on the best Cinque Terre wine, which we will enjoy from the best view on earth ... after you've earned it!

Staðsetning

Volastra is a special place, one of the original settlements above the Cinque Terre, and so we're taking a breathtaking trail to this village in order to catch the vibe and the views up there. After grabbing some wine from Luciano Capellini's cellar (we're not allowed to go inside it this year, because of the anti-COVID safety restrictions), we'll walk out to his vineyard to taste his renowned wine while gazing on the Mediterranean below.

A wonderful hike up through the hills above Manarola. The vineyard on the top was just breathtaking and I don't think would have found it by myself. Doug was very friendly and had lots of interesting stories about wine and the region that were very entertaining. 100% recommend!!

Doug was energetic from the get go and brought the group together nicely and had a chat with all members. He was motivating throughout the hike and took things at the necessary pace to keep the group together. He had quips of information throughout about cinque terre which was a nice addition to the hike and the wine at the end in the vineyard was a perfect wrap.

This trip was everything I had hoped for and more. Doug is really nice and tells you very interesting facts about the area. I thought about hiking from Manarola to Corniglia by myself but was so glad that I decided to go on this tour. It is also something else to enjoy the really good white wine and focaccia with the breathtaking view over the Mediterranean in front of you. I loved it!

Doug was our guide for the morning. He did an excellent job in sharing the history of Cinque Terre and pointing out important landmarks and facts. The hike was amazing, one of the most beautiful hikes we’ve been on. We enjoyed it so much we continued on the trail to Montorosa. The tour of the winery was interesting and the tasting rooms views could not be beat. I truely did not want to leave. Now, the wine itself was some of the best white wine I’ve had (I’m a red drinker usually). We ended up tracking down and buying some bottles in town to bring home. I’d recommend bringing a back pack just to bring wine home. Hats off the the wine maker that we were actually lucky enough to meet. 👍🏽 If you like hiking and wine this tour is an absolute must!

Wow! Such an awesome experience! To be honest we were not expecting the hike to be as challenging as it was, even after reading the description, so be sure that you are ready and wear athletic gear because we did not and sweat or butts off. The view was well worth it though and the stories and information were priceless! We couldn't recommend this experience more!
