A four-hour quad bike tour of the beautiful Tuscany countryside
Tours available throughout the year
This extraordinary tour takes you along a section of the celebrated ‘L’Eroica’ (literally, ‘the heroic’) where you will experience the beauty of Tuscany and then stop for a taste of some delicious local produce.
You will be collected from Siena, Arezzo or Florence train station and taken by our driver to the jewel in Tuscany’s crown, Crete Senesi. In this striking location, only 20 minutes from Siena, you will be given a short introduction to your quadbike. When you have familiarised yourself with the machine, we will begin our journey across unpaved roads that sparkle white in the sun. On our four-hour tour, we will learn about the area while viewing some of the most spectacular scenery in Tuscany.
Lunch will be spent at a local winery where you can indulge in a little wine tasting and enjoy a heavenly meal made with ingredients direct from the local farm. We will then return to the meeting point to conclude our tour.
The world that awaits you to the south of Crete Senesi and southeast of Val d’Orcia and Siena is beyond imagining. With its grey, gently-sloping hills and its almost complete lack of colour, it is like being on the surface of the moon. Several clay hills punctuate the landscape. These knolls are all that remains of the Pliocene sea, a huge expanse of water than existed millions of years ago, left by the continuous erosion of sediment. The past is everywhere in Crete Senesi. Sometimes called the Desert of Accona, ancient cultures and medieval towns have left their mark here and there are a wide range of activities and festivals to get involved with and help you appreciate all the area has to offer.
