It is now finally official: Via Alpina !!
It is now finally official: a new hiking adventure is about to start soon!
The 3rd of June i will move the first steps on this new long hike that will take me through the 8 different countries of the Alpine region, Italy,of course, Slovenia, Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, France and the Principality of Monaco. It is a network of 5 walking trails for a total of more than 5000km and around 342 day stages. Here is the link to the official page of the Via Alpina
At the beginning I will be hiking part of the Red and the Yellow trail, switching over during the first week, then once in Austria my path will follow the Red one all the way to Switzerland where I will start the Green across the whole country. Upon reaching the Mount Blanc my plan is to take the best of the Blue and the Red path until the Principality of Monaco.
It will be around 3000km long and according to my calculations it will take 3 months and a half to complete - that is, if everything goes well and the weather allows, I usually have a good Karma :)
On this Blog I will be publishing my progress along the hike, thoughts, photos, live videos, meetings and adventures. I am collaborating with a couple of magazines where i will be writing articles and posting some photos along the way.
Stay tuned !!
