Walking on Malta & Gozo

A walking adventure on Malta and Gozo, islands located in the Western Mediterranean, with a beguiling mix of culture and history. Contrasting landscapes feature rocky stretches of coast line with red-gold beaches and clear turquoise seas. Explore Malta’s capital, Valletta, home to some of the most important monuments and museums. On Gozo experience a tranquil haven, where life’s rhythm’s are dictated by the seasons. Take a ferry and walk around the smaller island of Comino, positioned between the two. Prehistoric temples, colourful fishing boats in quaint harbours, great local wine and overnight stays in charming accommodations, all serve to make this an unforgettable experience.
