velatrekking island of Capraia

VELATREKKING ON THE WAY BETWEEN LAND AND SEA

Il lusso di svegliarti in mezzo al mare, camminare ogni giorno, rilassare la mente.

We love her! The island of Capraia is the wild island of the Tuscan Archipelago National Park, closer to Corsica than to the Tuscan coast.

That island that captivates from the first moment.

From day to day on excursions we will learn to appreciate its beauties, its history, its authentic life enclosed in the town and marina.

We will get to know its blue waters, its geological history, its history linked to the agricultural penal colony, we will stop on the peaks to listen to nature, and then go back down to the sea to enjoy nature completely.

We will go into detail about its food and wine products, which are so surprising despite the smallness of the area.

Program

The itinerary includes the island of Capraia and the beautiful crossing in search of cetaceans

Every day long excursions will allow us to explore Nature, meet locals and admire views in complete silence.

Boarding is scheduled at 10.30 am at the Port of Portoferraio (directions will follow to book the ferry with our discount code)

Once we arrive at the port we will leave our backpacks in the cabin before getting to know each other and having a short briefing.
Barring adverse weather conditions, we will leave immediately for Capraia

The itinerary includes the island chosen by the Monk Seal, Capraia

During navigation we will all be attentive in the lively hope of meeting some dolphins or whales, also alternating a few moments of eco-sustainability pills and information and knowledge of the animals that inhabit the sea.

Walking we enter the island along the Monte delle Penne ring.
A beautiful excursion will take us to the other side of the island, passing through the Stagnone towards Monte Penne from which you can admire an incredible panorama of the west coast and Corsica.
We will pass through lands where goats graze, and where in the past the penal colony took root which is still visible today.

We will climb up to Monte Arpagna , also called the Semaforo as it is a military control and signaling post on the Corsica channel. Breathtaking 360 degree view.
We will continue descending towards Cala Rossa, dominated by its tower, one of the most beautiful scenarios of the Archipelago, rich in history and geology.

Cala Rossa which we will see from above but also from the sea, with one of the most precious baths of the trip

Passing through the former agricultural penal colony we will head towards the northern tip of the Punta della Teglia island with its tower overlooking the sea. Continue along the path that leads to the suggestive Queen's Tower , a paradise for seagulls and mouflons .

At the end of each excursion the boat will be waiting for us to relax, swim, enjoy an aperitif at sunset, daydream while looking at the stars.

Disembarkation is scheduled for June 2nd at 5.00 pm Port of Portoferraio.

We will cook on board, delighting you with excellent quality, organic and natural cuisine, mainly 0 km from the island and cruelty free.
Traveling responsibly also means choosing food that has as little impact on the environment as possible. For this reason we will have on board our famous pasta and flour made from ancient grains of Montespertoli, Tuscan products but above all jams, vegetables, wine and beer produced directly in Capraia.

Overnight stays will be at anchor but it is possible to arrange an overnight stay in port for a fee (extra) if the sea weather conditions require it.

The program is indicative as it is subject to weather conditions, and only the Skipper will have the right to decide it definitively.

Your Guide

Claudia , founder of Lasca la Randa: environmental hiking guide licensed under the law, with a master's degree in marine biologist.

An expert leader of groups on trekking excursions, she particularly loves places like these in periods outside the other season : this is why she continues to accompany you on these adventures, full of anecdotes, of Nature, of challenges outside the comfort zone. He always searches for the essence of places, especially if they are islands, after all, we reflect ourselves a bit.

He loves going on excursions, even long ones, laughing, making you reflect on the beauty of slow rhythms that this experience has . He loves animals, he always carries food for cats and dogs in his backpack that he meets along the paths (except in Asinara!)

Sometimes he brings with him notes to read on stories and anecdotes, poems that are for daily reflection.

Literally in love with this island 🙂

Ho scelto di fare la GTE con Lasca La Randa per l'attenzione all'ambiente e la vocazione a far conoscere l'anima più autentica di un posto, sapori inclusi. Ho trovato tutto quel che mi aspettavo ed anche molto, molto di più: si termina il viaggio già con la voglia di prenotarne un altro con loro!

Emozionante avventura in una terra bellissima e ospitale. Cammino lungo, impegnativo ma al contempo appagante e godibile. Grazie ai piacevoli compagni di viaggio e soprattutto a Claudia, guida esperta, affidabile e simpatica. Psico e Virgola. 😊

Con Lasca La Randa ho fatto la Gran Traversata Elbana. Trekking magnifico, come tutti sanno, che Claudia (anima e mente di Lasca la Randa e grande esempio di imprenditoria femminile) ha organizzato in ogni dettaglio e gestito con simpatia, professionalità e sicurezza (nonostante, nel nostro caso, un meteo complicato). Molto interessante e mai banale la scelta dei punti di ristoro e di pernottamento che hanno reso il cammino anche una bellissima esperienza umana. Assolutamente consigliata

Nonostante il tempo brutto, Claudia ci ha guidato con simpatia e grande competenza. Un tragitto molto bello, studiato nel dettaglio, arricchito dai suoi racconti sul territorio e la natura. Esperienza di condivisione e rispetto degli animali e dell’ambiente. Una guida sensibile e preparata, che ha scelto con coraggio di fare della sua passione il suo mestiere. Trekking consigliatissimo!

I participated in the New Year's trek in Pantelleria. It wasn't just a holiday but it was a real journey. The information received by telephone from Claudia immediately gave me the impression of a well thought out and structured formula but in an informal mood. Happy to have decided to overcome the resistance of leaving alone, or without knowing anyone, once I landed in Pantelleria it was all a succession of positivity. Enchanting and ancestral places, changing and varied (from the peaks to the coasts) were the backdrop to six days of well-being, laughter and silence, sharing and reflection, effort and rest. Our group blended very well right from the start and for this thanks to Claudia and Roberto for the incessant and tireless desire to convey the essence of the island but above all for having been able to create a relational climate which was the true success of this Pantelleria 23/34. I like to think that we all came back from there a little better. Team Rotwalli🩶

I have participated in several trips with Lasca La Randa, both velatrekking and New Year's Eve trekking in Pantelleria and I understood that when you leave with Claudia and Roberto it will not be "just" a trip but a unique and special experience. You find yourself living in an almost surreal world, not only made up of landscapes, unforgettable sunsets, trekking between mountains and cliffs, swimming in crystal clear waters, but also immersed in the local way of life, going to discover its characters, food and traditions . It's a profound journey, which ties you to the place you visit and the people you visit it with and helps you get to know yourself better. Claudia and Roberto have the ability to unite the participants who, although they have just met, find themselves experiencing the same emotions... nothing is left to chance, sharing comes first, and in an instant the group becomes close-knit. Every trip I have taken has been unique and has won a piece of my heart. A particular love goes to velatrekking, absolutely worth trying! Swimming at dawn before leaving for the excursion, Roberto coming to pick you up in a cove after the effort of trekking and enjoying the aperitif and the sunset in the middle of the sea, spotting dolphins and living in harmony with the sea have not price! There is only one downside to all this: it's addictive... as soon as you get back you can't wait to book another trip!!!

Girls, don't think about it too much, hurry up and book! Trust Claudia and Roberto: they will take you to magical places, they will introduce you to extraordinary people and you will participate in unique emotions that will make you (re)discover nature, humanity and the sustainability of travel, the beautiful ones!! Anyone who has been lucky enough to travel with them and their groups knows exactly what I'm talking about! Few excuses: ready, set off... have a good trip!! Thanks Claudia, see you soon :)

By now I can define myself as a regular at Lasca la Randa (or a fan?). Whether it's a summer velatrek, a trekking trip or a day excursion in Tuscany, Claudia manages to make the experience special and create groups of strangers who at the end of the trip or the day seem to have known each other all their lives.

Claudia, great guide, positive person in every sense. From her words and the way she leads you along the paths, all her love for nature shines through, furthermore, given that sometimes when venturing into trekking we might run into some unforeseen events, she does not neglect anything for the purposes of the safety of the participants. Her backpack and her mind are like a magician's top hat from which she pulls out surprises, but unlike the top hat the ones that come out of her are real and not illusions. GOOD AND PREPARED!

When destiny, destiny, are on your side you happen to meet people like Roberto and Claudia. A trip to celebrate an important birthday allowed us to meet this couple of eco-sustainable sailing and excursion professionals. Our experience was limited to sailing, and Roberto is a great skipper, but we were also able to enjoy the exceptional cuisine and impeccable service provided by Claudia and Roberto himself. They made our holiday unforgettable with professionalism and discretion, but they were able to bond with us in an incredible way. The added value of Lasca la Randa is precisely the two of them. The MMTeam have no words to thank you.

Claudia is the hiking guide you wouldn't expect. I have done more than one daily trekking excursion with her and I will do as many again. With Claudia there is no shortage of professionalism, kindness and a lot of friendliness. What makes her unique is her tireless love for the protection of animals and the environment that surrounds us and her unfailing attentive look towards life understood as a journey to rediscover our true inner values, against the current, which perhaps may not correspond to what society would have wanted for us, or what we ourselves believed we wanted for ourselves, but which if we manage to follow them, will lead us towards immeasurable happiness. This is what Claudia did with her life and this she brings to her travels, absolutely worth trying! Loose the mainsail is much more than a hiking guide, it's a movement. ⛵
