The unique ecosystem of Puglia is one of the region’s main attractions. It contains a superb mix of gorges and canyons, underground and marine caves, steppe and macchia shrublands, rocky cliffs, and golden shores.

For nature lovers, hiking or biking in Puglia is a pure delight. You can explore the depths and mysteries of the gravine, stroll by centuries-old vineyards and oil mills, discover the unique flora and fauna of the Gargano National Park with its famous Foresta Umbra, or follow the footsteps of centuries past along medieval trails. The choice is yours.


With year-round perfect wind conditions, Puglia is a sought-after destination for water sports enthusiasts. Windsurfing and kitesurfing are extremely popular in the Gallipoli area, where experts and amateurs gather from around Europe to enjoy their favourite sports in idyllic locations.

Want to energise your Puglia holiday with an adrenaline boost? Our local partners can arrange kitesurfing and windsurfing classes (beginner to advanced) in Italian, English, French, German and Spanish.


Nothing says freedom like a horseback ride in Puglia. Warm winds bring the salty scent of the sea, whilst swooshing trees and rocky cliffs gently protect you from the heat of the sun. It’s pure bliss.

With a varied landscape, Puglia has much to offer horse riding enthusiasts and amateurs alike. Choose a quiet family ride downhill, an adventurous tour on natural trails across woods and gorges, or a romantic ride at sunset. Our local partners will arrange your equestrian adventure from start to finish. 


How about enjoying the Mediterranean Sea from a unique angle? With a long-standing tradition of fishing and sailing, Puglia is the perfect destination.

Whether you’re in for fishing and grilling on a traditional sailboat, a dolphin watching trip, or quietly floating aboard a luxury yacht, our local partners will plan your perfect boat trip or tour with the right blend of leisure and adventure.
