Getting to the start of your Italian tour

While we work hard to plan and organize outdoor adventures in the Italian Alps, we don’t arrange travel to the starting location. But there’s no need to worry, as we’re here to advise you on the best, safest, and quickest ways to travel to the first location of your tour.

Italy is a very well-connected country, so rarely more than a two-hour car journey away from a major airport or train station. While many Alpine destinations are remote, it’s often possible to reach some of our destinations by bus or train.

Outdoor Italy supports low-emission travel and will always recommend the most sustainable ways to reach our destinations. In most cases, this will be by public transport or car. If you’re flying, please use the carbon offset option offered by most airlines.

Please note that the information above is only a recommendation. Outdoor Italy only accepts responsibility from the start of the tour.
