Do you like to enjoy the typical gastronomy of the cities that you visit? The hiking route through the Barolo Vineyards is your ideal trip. You will walk through the most renowned wine areas of the region, while delighting in its cheeses, wines, truffles and traditional cakes. This is the ideal plan for those passionate about good food.

You will start your trip in Alba, where we suggest arriving from Turin or Milan. You will discover the Langhe Hills, in the Piedmont region, highlighted by its vineyards, medieval villages, charming castles and immense forests. You will advance to Barolo, walking over undulating trails and finally reaching the end of your route in the town of Cortemilia.

This route is characterized by the excellent cuisine and quality of life that is breathed in the towns you will visit. We suggest you go calmly and thinking about enjoying its wines and its vineyards, its hazelnut plantations and, of course, the famous ‘Tuber Magnatum’, or white truffle, which proliferates mainly in the northern Italian area.

You can enjoy our baggage transfer service that will allow you to walk much easier while discovering the beauty of this hiking trail through the towns and villages you’ll be visiting.

Also, if you have any incidents en route, we are at your disposal 24 hours a day via an emergency telephone. With Santiago Ways, you will walk safely and comfortably.

We’re glad you’ve got this far. Now, we just need to know how you want us to help you prepare your trip. We’re waiting for you! Leave us your details and we will send you a quote tailored to your requirements.
