Walks for Everyone in the Sulmona Area

The Sulmona Valley, or Valle Peligna, is a wonderful place to experience the spectacular Abruzzo countryside on foot. From gentle family ambles to serious mountain hikes – they are all here, waiting for you to discover, in the heart of our beautiful region.

On our website you will find:

  • Advice & guidance on walking in the area
  • Descriptions of walks in the Valle Peligna to buy and download


We are busy creating content and are over half way to our target for 2018! The first 12 routes, a wide choice across the grades, are available for download now (one for free!). This is over 150km of carefully mapped and described footpaths in the Sulmona Valley – and bang up to date! Lots of other routes will be added over the summer of 2018. Our plan is to have published 20 by the autumn – or about 300km worth; enough to keep you all healthy and happy for a while.

  • local public transport
  • how walks are graded
