It is always the People we meet on our life path that make the difference, rather than the destination itself.

Small group of maximum 12 people allows for a human dimension : Whether they are travel companions, or meetings with local people, it is the People who make the Difference.

You can travel in color anywhere, even behind the door

Faced with the countless offers of activities in the outdoor sector, especially trekking, we have set ourselves the goal of remaining a small reality of human people.

Our activities cannot be purchased online to prevent you from making wrong and hasty choices: this certainly means much more tiring work behind us, but it allows us to immediately enter into a relationship with you through phone calls to get to know each other and therefore evaluate together whether the activity your interest is suited to your strings (and legs).

All this is done in our common interest and yours.

We are guests of this wonderful Earth, which we must respect and protect in all its forms through the values of each of us.

Every small personal gesture aimed at reducing the impact on the environment can make a difference. The market follows and shapes itself based on demand; for this reason, changing our habits and having more awareness can really be a fundamental step, if we all do it together.

Respecting Nature also means respecting ourselves, who are an integral part of it.

Planned by an environmental guide and professional hiker with a master's degree in marine biologist.

They are important opportunities to change habits and start traveling "lighter".

As in the sea also on land, walking together we will look for intimate places, silence, scents, smiles and laughter . We will be in harmony with Nature, with local people and traditions.

We will live outside mass tourism even in August , and we will get to know the true soul of places outside the common imagination.

How do we work to create eco-sustainable VelaTrekking ?

  • beyond plasticfree
  • solid detergents/soaps with reduced environmental impact,
  • water always in glass, which we fill where possible with public water
  • crockery, plates and glasses in ceramic and steel,
  • compostable sponge
  • we collect waste from the sea
  • we favor km0 and organic food
  • marine biologist projects

Cooking is also part of eco-sustainability. For this reason, a few years ago, I decided to produce organic extra virgin olive oil and Associazione Grani Antichi di Montespertoli from which to derive pasta, bread, biscuits and all my beloved fresh pasta.

In VelaTrekking, respecting the Eco-sustainable and responsible philosophy of Lasca la Randa, I carefully select each producer from the island visited or from the region to which they belong , so that it is Km0 and organic.

While walking we will visit small local businesses together to reflect together on the importance of sustainable and quality production, even better if cruelty free.

The daily choice of food is a source of benefit for our health and that of the Earth that hosts us. We cannot transcend this awareness .

We are committed to discovering and preserving local traditions , enhancing them, meeting those who have been intimate guardians of that knowledge for years; who gives warmth with a simple smile
authentic to those who listen to it.

We don't like mass tourism , or walking without awareness, which is why we give value to small realities, traditions, men and women who tell their passion, who take you back to their world with a few words, a look, a gesture, the opening the door of their knowledge.


Vademecum for Eco-sustainable and Responsible Travel according to Lasca la Randa

1. Prefer sustainable structures that operate in an ethical and virtuous manner, enhancing the territory. Which means not damaging resources, being efficient and not wasting resources and energy. This is not always possible, we are aware of this.

2. Visiting areas of high naturalistic and cultural value is the first prerequisite for being aware of the value to be preserved and protected. However, we need the correct approach to each area regardless of the value it intrinsically offers.

3. Choose sustainable modes of transport by trying to limit the use of planes and favoring travel on foot, by bicycle, by sailing boat, by train and by ferry.

4. Promoting typical local, zero km and organic products allows us to contribute to the local economy, enhance the quality of the products, respect the land, preserve our health and that of the environment. Choosing eco-sustainable products reduces the probability of exploitation behind production, both for human strength and for the land/animals etc.

5. Use Glass Water and reuse the bottle by filling it from public fountains.

6. Avoid disposable products .

7. Use Ecolabel Solid Soaps and Detergents with Low Environmental Impact

8. Respect local customs, culture and lifestyles by looking at the world from a different point of view without prejudice. The sustainable traveler opens himself up to knowledge, meeting and dialogue with the people he goes to meet. With the utmost respect for local customs and traditions.

9. Promote the local economy and traditions Local communities should be the first to benefit from tourism. Craftsmanship must be safeguarded, but beware of souvenirs which in some parts of the world may be made from animal or plant species at risk of extinction. In this case, it is better to avoid the purchase.

10. Choose tour operators and associations that organize ethical and eco-sustainable trips.

11. Plan your holiday consciously, inform yourself, study before leaving. Learning even a few phrases in the local language can help communication and unite.

12. Think about the environmental impact of the holiday and limit it "Having fun without destroying" should be the first motto of those who practice sustainable tourism. Every single action has an impact on the environment, it is up to us to be aware of it and try to minimize it. Leaving few traces other than the imprints of our feet should be the correct approach of the responsible traveler.

13. Do not throw organic waste into the environment and the sea , avoid leaving food residues in an unsuitable environment. Any waste left behind alters the balance of the habitat.

14. Minimize the use of plastic and avoid products with microplastics .

15. Respect and protect all animals , whether they are endangered or not. Walking in Silence. Don't scream in the woods. Don't chase animals. Don't give them food. Do not frequent the circus and environments such as aquariums and zoos.
