Walking the Prosecco Hills

From £1199 for 8 days
Trip Overview
Just an hour’s drive north of Venice, in the foothills of the Dolomites, is one of the world’s best yet largely undiscovered wine regions. Here ancient terraced vineyards clinging to the sides of every possible slope are dedicated exclusively to grapes for Italy’s most prized sparkling wine: Prosecco. Based in an elegant converted villa, located in the heart of the so called 'Prosecco Road' - Italy’s oldest wine route - we spend a week walking through picturesque rolling hills and sampling the area’s delicious cuisine and authentic bubbles. We also visit charming mediaeval villages such as Cison, Follina, Asolo as well as the beautiful capital province of Treviso.

Itinerary & Notes
Our trip starts in Soligo, a small village located in the heart of the Prosecco hills, approximately 60km north of Venice. The area is picturesque, with lush vineyards covering the slopes of every possible hill and old churches, abbeys, villas and ancient castles dotting the landscape. Prosecco has been produced here for centuries, but only more recently, thanks to the surge in its popularity worldwide, has the area captured the deserved spotlight. Nevertheless, still relatively few tourists visit this wine region each year, making it an ideal location for our week of walking, wine tasting and cultural discovery in a still very authentic rural part of Italy. Depending on the group arrival time, there might be some time for a quick orientation walk near our hotel.

From start to finish I could not fault Nordic walking the Prosecco hills of Italy with Exodus. My first Exodus holiday. Our walk leader Serena Cassol was amazing. Her calm approach to the structure of our day was clear and informative. Everything ran smoothly as the day progressed and each day was a new mini adventure with Serena. The Hotel Soligo was spotlessly clean with helpful staff. The private minibus a welcome treat. I felt utterly spoilt. I can’t wait to travel with Exodus again. Thank you.
       
Well organised trip and I would especially like to thank the staff at Exodus Travels for all the help and support they gave me individually. This was truly a trip to remember.
       
Walking the Prosecco Hills was amazing from start to finish....I found it hard to leave when it was over! Our tour leader, Vania, is such a great young woman - she couldn't do enough for us, always had a smile on her face and boundless energy and got along so well with everyone in our group. This was my first experience of a walking holiday and now I'm a convert! I found the walks pretty challenging but that served to make me feel that I had really achieved something when I'd finished each one. We had quite a few experienced walkers in our group which I thought might be a bit intimidating, but they were all wonderful people who were happy and willing to share their knowledge, experience and helpful tips to assist the novices amongst us along the way. The whole area is just beautiful...gorgeous scenery even in pretty average, rainy weather and it hasn't been discovered yet by large hordes of tourists! The prosecco was plentiful and amazing and the food....heavenly!!
       
This trip proved to be all we expected and more. The scenery was excellent. Our guide was fantastic and took care of a group with diverse needs, while keeping us all happy.
       
This holiday proved to be all we wanted it to be and more. The scenery was fantastic. Our guides local knowledge meant we saw the best of what was there and had time to explore. Some of the walks were up extremely steep hillsides, but with sufficient time and encouragement, we all got to the tops of the climbs and were rewarded with wonderful views, and sometimes a glass of prosecco!
       
Particularly enjoyed the variety of walks - good standard for relatively fit walkers. Plenty of time to do things on one's own as well as walking every day. Lovely food in restaurants and good choices made by Exodus. Hotel spacious but rooms a bit tired. Delicious breakfasts and staff could not have been more helpful.
       
A very enjoyable and varied week getting to know all about the Prosecco region and it's very drinkable wines, especially the DOCGs. Pleasant rolling countryside making for some fairly easy but satisfying walks, often through vineyards. A characterful old hotel with agreeably large rooms, where I woke up to the sound of cuckoos, sometimes visible. One word of advice...bring your own soap as the soaps provided are miniscule. We missed the summer opening of the swimming pool, but given the mixed weather it's doubtful we would have made much use of it. Come prepared for possible rain ! Lots of great food, an excellent local pizzeria but also finer dining with interesting local dishes including rabbit and venison, though vegetarians are reasonably well catered for. Wine was provided with a number of included meals, which was a nice and welcome surprise. A fascinating visit to a local winery is also included, as well as another wine tasting. All in all it is unlikely you will lose any weight on this walking tour ! Most of us, on our free day, enjoyed a delightful sunny day in glorious (still) Venice where it is possible to get away from the tourist crowds and steep oneself in the sights , sounds and smells of the smaller canals and back streets. And you don't have to pay a fortune for a drink or decent lunch. The tour ended with an unexpected pleasant hour's walk and tasty lunch on our last day. With a friendly, empathetic group such as ours and a wonderful leader in Serena it proved to be a truly memorable trip.
       
This is one of the best walking trips I’ve done. Fairly easy walking and in beautiful surroundings. Stunning views (weather permitting) and great walks through lovely villages and many vineyards. Food and quality of restaurants outstanding and all washed down with Prosecco. Absolute heaven.
       
Really enjoyable trip. Great Food, wine, hotel, company. Exceptional guide, thanks Serena! Would highly recommend!
       
This walking tour was very enjoyable; walks were of modest difficulty and quite scenic in terms of views of the vineyards and surrounding countryside. Guide provided excellent service, frequently going beyond the call of duty. Transportation to walks was excellent. Accommodations at Hotel Villa Soligo were very good; hotel staff were very courteous and welcoming. Meals included in package were excellent; guide also provided good advice for other dinners.
       
Really good trip, great walking, pretty scenery and a good balance of things to do eg. The Prosecco tasting and meals out were a nice balance to just walking. The villa was a little dated but the outdoor area was superb with a beautiful pool. Vania the trip leader was amazing. Her English is faultless, she couldn’t have been more helpful and gave lots of information. She was such a lovely person too and very diplomatic in trying to deal with any concerns. She was a lot of fun and loved by all. she’s a real credit to Exodus.
       
A really fabulous week, great mix of really enjoyable walks, good food, great company, and of course, lots of Prosecco!
       
My first Exodus trip and I wasn’t disappointed. Very well organised with excellent variety each day. Beautiful walks in an amazing landscape. I wanted to know more about Prosecco and on this tour you will do just that with tasting opportunities. Both wine tasting events were a joy with excellent food.
