OUR PROPOSALS FOR WEEKEND OR LONGER PERIODS

Food and wine walks in the vineyards: hiking in the Langhe is a journey into the world of wine!

Did you know a 140-km-long loop trail in the Langhe connects the Barbaresco and Barolo areas via the Alta Langa?

We’ll let you in on a secret…this is one of the most beautiful and famous Langhe trekking routes, but we hadn’t covered it entirely until May 2020! After the long months of lockdown, it seemed like the perfect way to start again: nature is the best ally in these cases, and filling our eyes with so much beauty was therapeutic! That is why we thought of formulating our proposal related to this wonderful itinerary in the Langhe.

Passeggiata nel bosco

Starting over from scratch. A trek in the Langhe to find ourselves

How many times have we told ourselves that we would do it? There are times in our lives when we feel the pulsating need to renew ourselves, to start again, more aware and more robust than before. Some people decide to change their lives sharply and decisively, while others to make those changes they have long yearned for at a less sustained but still effective pace because that is the pace we feel is ours.
To get going again, we at SlowDays suggest you walk in the Langhe and Roero: an activity as simple as it is essential to share with your family or friends or to experience, why not, even simply in the company of yourself. Walking will help you make space in your thoughts, rediscover the most magical places in Piedmont and start again with that new positive energy that only unspoiled nature like that of Langhe e Roero can offer you.

Our proposals could also be called wine and food treks in the Langhe since the product of the vineyards will be very present: you will be able to observe the different stages of ripening of the grapes in the vineyard. Thinking about delving into the magical world of wine in the winery will be spontaneous, so our treks in the Langhe become authentic wine treks.

WHY CHOOSE TREKKING IN THE LANGHE?

The Piedmontese Langhe and Roero are an excellent area to travel on foot.

Traveling on foot is a new way of vacationing that is sustainable and can provide a lasting sense of well-being.

Why choose Langhe for your walking vacation?

How are hilly Piedmont itineraries different from those in other areas?

Let’s try to answer with points

Reasons for choosing a trek in the Langhe.

  • As the first motivation, we want to say that the Langhe is excellent; we already told you that maybe? Don’t trust what we say; come and check for yourself! Well, in short, there would be a reason if Unesco decided to put the Langhe among “its” heritages and did so precisely because of the wine landscapes!
  • The Langhe is for everyone! Needless to deny: hiking trails are more challenging in the mountains! Not that the Langhe and Roero are like flat walks, but certainly, the climbs are never prohibitive and are always followed by descents and flat sections.
  • The landscape is very diverse! Do you think maybe there are only vineyards? You are wrong! Especially if you decide to take the route from the Langhe of Barbaresco through the Alta Langa to the Langhe of Barolo, you will discover the variety of landscapes that characterize this beautiful hilly area of Piedmont. First, the vineyards, then the woods, then villages and castles, to return to the vineyards
  • Do you like walks with few amenities? With overnight stays in hostels and shared rooms? Or maybe with a tent on your back? Very well, that can fit! Oh my, there are no hostels here in the Langhe, but some spartan accommodations you can find. In this case, we especially recommend the Alta Langa area. However, if you are a comfort lover and the idea of a shared bathroom or hostel doesn’t tickle your fancy, you can find complete satisfaction in the Langhe! Who said trekking has to be “uncomfortable” and spartan? It’s OK to hike, but if you arrive at a cozy facility in the evening, perhaps where you can dip in the pool, we think there’s nothing wrong with that. If you have someone to take care of your luggage while you comfortably go about your day hike, I’d say that combines physical activity and comfort!
  • In the Langhe, the trails are pretty well marked, not all of them. In any case, don’t worry: if you buy one of our packages, we will study the trails in the Langhe for you, and you can follow them on your cell phone, just like a navigator.
  • I leave for last the motivation, in my opinion, the most important. Here we are not talking about walking in the Langhe or hiking; we are talking about “Wine Trek Langhe”! Wine is the protagonist, even if you don’t like to drink it (but are you sure?)…if you come in autumn, your walk in the Langhe will be characterized by the scent of grapes still attached to the vines, if you come in spring the soft green of the vineyards with the background of the towers and castles will be all to photograph…but above all, we are talking about wine trekking because, if you want, there will be no lack of visits to wineries to discover all about the world of the great wines of the Langhe, such as Barolo and Barbaresco but also Barbera. You’ll also find lots of white wines (for those you can’t leave out a visit to the Roero area) and, lately, increasingly frequent rosés or bubbles. Of course, the cuisine is not to be outdone either! You know, appetite comes with walking…and dinner with a view of the Langhe will not take it away from you in the evening!

Do you already imagine yourself with tired legs from the walk in the Langhe, shower done, a terrace over the vineyards, and a glass in your hand? Well then, our Langhe walking vacation packages are waiting for you!

5 star ratingExcellent tour of the Langhe. Claudia from Slowdays organised a week in Piemonte for my wife and myself during the truffle festival. She was most responsive to all our email requests and our various changes. We spent 2 months in Italy but Claudia helped make Piemonte a destination we will return to. A highlight was the truffle hunt with Charlie and his dog. It was an awesome morning trekking the hazelnut trees to watch him dig for truffles, a most engaging fellow. Claudia also organised all our accommodation, restaurants and drivers and everything went without a hitch. Our driver and guide for 2 days Gabrielle and he was absolutely amazing. We visited several wineries chosen by Claudia in the Barolo and Barbareso and they were the most passionate wine makers in most places that I've encountered. The lunches were great and because we most wineries and lunches were just the 2 of us. I cannot recommend Slowdays enough. It was organised exactly as we wanted it, tailored absolutely to us. Claudia also changed a departure time for us at short notice on a Sunday and that is service that you rarely receive any where. In conclusion, if you want a private guided tour from singles to groups of family or friends then this is the company to use. Claudia really did amaze me.

Wedding Anniversary in Alba Claudia went out of her way to organize the ebike tour for my husband and I even though she was "closed" for logistics matters. It was a fantastic and breath taking experience cycling through the rolling hills of Langhe through La Morra and Barolo. The biking guide was friendly, attentive and made sure that we were "safe" every bit of the way. We also signed up for the truffle hunting tour. The truffle hunter was so passionate about his work. His dog Gigio even found a white and black truffle for us that day. Thanks to Claudia and her team, my husband and I enjoyed ourselves tremendously.
