Alta Via del Golfo dell'Isola is a new hiking trail immersed in the midst of Western Riviera's hills and mountains, overlooking the sea, and joins four beautiful towns in the Savona province: Bergeggi, Spotorno, Vezzi Portio e Noli.

This new trail is, in fact, perfect for discovering the fascinating area, along a beautiful ridge overlooking the sea while crossing great scenic landscapes of environmental interest.

It is a 25km-long trail divided into 5 legs, all very approachable as the longest leg takes about 2h and 15 min and the highest difference in altitude is 380mt.
