Gozo Multi-activity

Our unique multi activity holiday gives us the chance to gives us the opportunity to discover this charming island, where each village tries to outdo the next with the fabulous churches and basilicas. Europe’s third largest domed church can be found on the island, and ancient fortresses and temples are not in short supply either!

We can explore the wonderfully wild coastal paths and cliffs, with turquoise blue waters shimmering below and spectacular views over to Malta and Comino, cycle along the quiet country roads and discover the hidden coves of Gozo’s pretty coastline by kayak. On our free days we can explore this pretty island further from our base or we can discover the marine life under the waves on an optional scuba diving excursion.

Full day walk

Gozo is a small, unspoiled island with a beautiful coastline and sunny Mediterranean climate which make it perfect for walking! Today we can enjoy wonderful sea views against the weathered coast and dramatic inland landscape, made up of small flat-topped hills. Wild fennel, carob and oleander are common sights, alongside abundant prickly pears. A small picnic lunch is included today.

Length of walk approx. 14km

Half day kayak

Explore Gozo and Comino (its neighbouring island) varied coastline by kayak, and enjoy some spectacular scenery from a completely different perspective. Visit sea caves, secluded beaches and picturesque inlets all using muscle power, rather than polluting petrol. Snorkels are also provided, so we can take a dip in the beautiful, blue Mediterranean.

Half day climbing

Gozo is the ideal place for rock climbing, located in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea it offers unrivalled climbing opportunities. Originally developed by the British Military whilst they were based on the island the craggy limestone rock, washed out by millennia of rainfall makes it undoubtedly an undiscovered climbing paradise!

Half day mountain bike

Gozo has a great deal to offer a cyclist and is becoming a popular activity with locals and visitors alike. The route will aim to avoid major hills, and travel down country roads and tracks and along the sea cliffs to see the most spectacular views and quaint villages. Our guide will offer a balance of easy and fun riding.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are fit and well enough to take part in your chosen activity holiday. If you are unsure as to whether the activities are within your capabilities, please contact the office to discuss.

Please note; you could be walking across uneven ground in some areas and extreme care must be taken, especially if wet. If used to using a pole/stick, it is advisable to bring it. Please appreciate the itinerary and content of the holiday may change at the time and at the discretion of the guide/organiser, should local conditions require. Solo’s Holidays Ltd cannot be held responsible for personal injury, accident or damage to property whilst on these activities other than incidents arising out of the company’s negligence. The guide has the right to refuse to guide an activity with anyone not properly attired.

Walking Notes:

  • Grade: Easy to medium
  • Distance: 14km
  • Walking boots are essential
  • For important information relating to activities holidays, see Medical Conditions here.
  • Activities may be changed due to adverse weather conditions. 

What to Wear
It is of paramount importance that you have the correct footwear. It is essential to wear walking boots that are comfortable and preferably lightweight, with some ankle support and a good grip. If you already have a pair of boots that you are happy walking in (including during hot/wet weather and on hard ground), then bring these along. However, if you are bringing new footwear, do make sure they are well broken in before you arrive. Experience has shown that wearing 2 pairs of woollen socks adds to comfort.

Whilst we would hope for good weather during your holiday, it is of course impossible to guarantee this. We would therefore recommend you travel with clothing suitable for all conditions, and suggest you use the following checklist as a guideline of what to take:

  • Walking boots with good ankle support
  • Waterproofs – jacket and trousers
  • Walking poles – recommended as they provide good support for the knees, particularly on downhill sections of walks and when conditions are wet/slippery
  • Lightweight trousers and shorts with pockets
  • Shirts or t-shirts for walking in
  • Walking socks – several pairs
  • Lightweight fleece or jumper
  • Hat & gloves
  • Daysack/rucksack for walking
  • Umbrella – it can be used also for protection from the sun as well as rain
  • Lightweight drinking bottle to carry water whilst walking
  • Small first aid kit – plasters, insect repellant, etc
  • Good, high factor sunscreen, sunhat and sunglasses – the sun’s strength is often multiplied in mountainous areas.

Gratuities
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €15.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate percentage on.
