Hiking holiday in the Euganean hills

Hiking paradise south of Padua

Besides their importance as spa region, the Euganean hills are a hiker's paradise south of Padua. The hills, covered with green meadows, thick hardwood forests and grape-vines, are perfect for walking, cycling and hiking. An elaborate trail system runs through the hills and 16 designated hiking trails take visitors to surrounding towns like Teolo Arquà Petrarca, Este, Padova and Abano Terme for hiking and walking through the beautiful countryside. On ZAINOO you will find a selection of the finest and most popular hiking tours in the Euganean hills.

Hiking in the Euganean hills

The Euganean hills are a paradise for cyclists, hikers and outdoor sportsmen. The hills are all of volcanic origin and were once formed by volcanic eruptions when the various hills were formed 30 million years ago. The highest point is the Monte Venda at 601 metres so the hills should be quite manageable for most hikers. The entire hillside is crisscrossed by a wide network of hiking trails. A total of 16 designated hiking trails of various degrees of difficulty lead through the hills. Particularly attractive is the 40.6-km long distance footpath Alta Via dei Colli Euganei, which leads through the various hills and ridges and is used by experienced hikers to explore the entire Euganean hills.

Picturesque hiking paradise in Veneto

Hardly any other region in Italy can offer such wonderful and accessible scenery for relaxing and hiking as the Euganean hills. In addition to tourists and travellers, many of the locals from the surrounding Veneto come to the green oasis to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Many hikers walk on the numerous hiking trails especially on weekends. Regardless of whether you come from Padua for hiking in the Euganean hills or are staying at one of the spa hotels in Montegrotto Terme, Battiglia Terme, Abano Terme or Galzignano Terme, a walk through the Euganean hills is definitely worth it.
