For more than ten years Il Viottolo excursion centre has been organising outdoor holidays which unite discovering our Islands (from a cultural, archaeological, historical and naturalistic point of view), with sporting challenge and the spirit of adventure, sharpening the senses and increasing knowledge, harmonising with the island environment. We propose hiking, sea kayak, mountain bike and sailing excursions for small groups of a maximum of 8 people, small so we can create a group feeling among the participants. The guides, who accompany you, are all passionate about their work and profoundly tied to our territory. Elba is our island the place where we live and carry out the largest part of our activity. Remaining faithful to our philosophy, we have developed our programmes to include other islands of the Tuscan Archipelago and Corsica.

We did the cycling and kayaking excursion and enjoyed it immensely. The tour was very well organized and the equipment was great. There is nothing worse than having a day trip ruined due to lousy equipment but both the bikes and kayaks were in good condition. The guides were friendly and organized and spoke English very well. These guys know... More

Discovered through Il Viottolo's website, I subscribed for a one week tour early August (8-16) and was totally enthusiastic about it: the guide Vittorio is the most professional as well a friendly guide, never leaves a beach without previous info through mobile phone connected to his colleagues around the island. We were 13 boys and girls + 2 guides, from... More

We went sea kayaking with Il Viottolo, and it was great fun. Our guide, Patrizio, was very nice, and good at instructing people. These kayaks are extremely sturdy. Both my boyfriend and I have kayaked quite a lot before, and these kayaks are the most sturdy ever seen. They are great for first time kayakers. You will not fall into... More

My family of 4 were beyond excited to sail while visiting Elba Island. I emailed Stefano well in advance and the trip was confirmed. We drove 20 minutes to meet Stefano in the port of Marino di Campo...parked, lugged our stuff to bring on the boat...and he wasn't there!!! Called the company and waited another 20 minutes to find out... More

My boyfriend, my mother and I had a wonderful time on the 3 hour canoe trip from Marina di Campo, to the grotta del vescovo and back via a lovely beach. Ruggero, the guide, was very knowledgeable but also had a very relaxed approach to guiding, which made the excursion all the more enjoyable. Not only did Ruggero offer to... More

Amazing Kayak experience on the Island of Elba off the coast of Enfola. The guide spoke excellent English and was super friendly. The route went around the little peninsula near Enfola and included stops on a small beach and snorkelling site where you can see the reef and local fish.
