 About us

We are an Elba based team of environmental excursionist guides and park guides working on our island since 1995,  taking care of hiking and environmental education. We specialize in trekking excursions, sea kayaking, mountain biking, and include these special ways to explore also in our environmental education programs. Our programs develop over several days and are aimed at primary, secondary or higher education schools, obviously with different suitable approaches and methodologies, even customized accordingly on request. The programs provide outdoor only activities, aimed to get to know the territory and raise awareness. The guides that will lead you, are specialized in supervising school groups, and hold a specific competence on all the naturalistic aspects of Elba and the other islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, particularly on interrelations between Man and environment as well as on local traditions. All guides are qualified both as environmental excursionist guides and Tuscan Archipelago National Park guides.

For a better outcome, we recommend one guide every 20/25 children.


Our environmental education projects develop from a concept that sees Elba and the Tuscan Archipelago territories as proper educational labs, offering a variety of material, cognitive, experiential and relational contexts able to trigger a reality projected towards an ecologically sustainable development. It is our priority to create educational opportunities that meet needs of both students and teachers while also being in line with each own school curriculum.

Each project contents and its related methodologies will be the result of a collaboration between a students/teachers group and the guides. It is in fact necessary for us to know your expectations in order to set goals and purposes related to a project suitable for schools of any kind and level.

In our opinion, an environmental education project achieves its goal if it produces changes not only on a cognitive level but also a behavioral one.
