All-inclusive guided gourmet walking holidays in Italy and beyond ...

At Hedonistic Hiking we are passionate about three things: food, wine and walking.  We are an Anglo-Australian couple dividing our time between Italy and Australia, and feel fortunate to be able to call both countries home. We have been running Hedonistic Hiking for over ten years and we design, research and lead all the tours ourselves.

We offer small group (max 16) guided gourmet hiking holidays in Tuscany, Umbria, Piedmont, the Italian Alps and Lakes, Slovenia, Abruzzo, Southern Italy, France, Austria and south-east Australia.

ATAS Registered

We are fully ATAS and AFTA registered and our walking tours are eco-friendly, designed for maximum enjoyment with minimum impact on the environment. Some of our hikes are more challenging than others and we have graded our walks to help you choose the right one for you.
