Hi, I'm Stacey. While I've visited Italy many times, it was during my recent research trip for this adventure that I truly fell in love with the Tuscan countryside. E-biking along the scenic roads took my breath away, the hiking and landscapes were magnificent, and the food was among the best I have ever tasted—a true culinary experience.

What I cherished most were the warmth and calm of the small villages overlooking the rolling hills, offering a peaceful escape from the hordes of tourists in the main cities.

In curating this trip, I partnered with local outfitters I got to know personally and handpicked my favorite activities to craft this unforgettable wellness journey. Join me as we move (moderately, nothing crazy), eat well, relax, and come together as a community of women to experience the magic of Tuscany.

​WHO IS THIS TRIP FOR: 

We are women, primarily in our 40s to 60s, who have a deep passion for exploration and self-care. We love to embark on adventures, appreciate diverse cultures, natural beauty, and enjoy the company of other remarkable women. If you're open-minded, adaptable, and ready to embrace new experiences with a positive attitude, this journey is for you. This trip includes moderate hiking in the mountains, so a reasonable level of fitness is required. Read the next section and let's talk if you have any questions or concerns. 

FITNESS LEVEL:

This is a multisport trip and mobility is necessary. The two days of biking is on e-bikes. This is how we will explore the regions and while they make uphill much easier, you will still be on a bike for a good part of the day mainly on small dirt paths with breaks for walking around. If you want a greater challenge, you can turn off the petal assist. Bike shorts may be helpful.

Each hiking trip is approximately 2-3 hours and considered easy to moderate. A more challenging option can be offered in Bagno Vignoni. Good footwear is necessary.
