Hiking Guide and Tour Leader to make you live a unique experience!
Michele, tour leader, sommelier and hiking guide (GAE); Liliana, hiking guide (GAE) and graphic designer. United by the passion for walking and the curiosity to know more about everything that surrounds us, convinced that everything has always been connected, we want to share our passion with other people, looking for something authentic.
We love Mother Nature, art, culture and traditions – especially gastronomic ones! – and the wine. Our idea of an experience is a journey, short or long, to be done with the five senses and with open mind and heart.
“For me the Apennines are a wonderful part of creation”
The Bolognese Apennine is a small hidden treasure, as little known as full of pearls and particularities, both from a naturalistic and cultural point of view. With a short transfer from Bologna you can immerse yourself in history, from the pre-Roman era to the Second World War. You can learn about the traditions of people accustomed to surviving in difficult conditions and taste delicacies, result of experience and passion handed down through the generations. Nonetheless, you can immerse yourself in one of the areas with the richest biodiversity in the world, in a wild reality with breathtaking landscapes. It is worth coming up here, stopping and exploring the area with an environmental hiking guide and a tour leader to live a unique experience. Trust a real Pelegrèn!
Tour Leader, Travel Consultant, Hiking Guide and Sommelier
I can’t sit still. For years I have always kept my suitcase open on the carpet. And I love sharing my passions: the mountains, nature, ornithology, geology, volcanoes, wine. Former engineer, now guide, first in a foreign land, then, finally, in my homeland. For me, accompanying means sharing passions and learning together, even in an apparently simple, but in reality exciting context. What’s better than spending time with people who share your interests?
Hiking Guide (GAE) and Graphic Designer
I started walking in the woods as a child, accompanying my grandfather on his walks. As an adult I have cultivated it as a hobby for years, until after following Michele in accompanying groups of hikers between Tenerife and Lanzarote, in Canary Islands, the desire to become a professional environmental hiking guide was born in me little by little. In October 2018 I obtained my license in the Emilia-Romagna Region and in 2019 I started working on the field, in our small part of the Apennines: the Upper Idice Valley!
Alone you go fast, together you go far!
