What you'll do

Get off the beaten path of the typical Tuscany tours and enjoy one exciting experience on the magical paradise island of Elba. Located 1,5 hour away from Pisa, your experience starts in Portoferraio after crossing the sea from Piombino Marittima. Meet with Francesca or one of her team member at your arrival in Portoferraio. After a safety briefing and a hands-on bike demo, get on you e-bike and start your adventure! Our carefully designed route will bring you on an exploration of the East side of the island where all the iron mines where once located. We will ride on picturesque asphalted roads along the coast across quaint villages until we reach an hilltop town. We will stop on the way for a well-deserved break and a scrumptious lunch in a local restaurant. En route we will stop to taste some organic olive oil and honey at a local producer. Afterwards we will continue riding to Porto Azzurro where we will go explore and taste our best artisanal gelato before getting back on our bikes for the last stretch of our trip. We finish riding once we get back to the port of Portoferraio. If you've never ridden an e-bike before you will fall in love with them! They flatten the hills and cancel the distance to leave you with and incredible feeling of freedom. It is possible to participate to this experience if you are already on Elba island or as day trip from the mainland.
