Quad tours

Discover the magnificent Calabria in a new, fun and adrenaline way and book our excursions between Tropea and Capo Vaticano, a unique emotion to share with friends or your family….

 

At the wheel of a brand new quad bike, our expert guide will take you on an exciting tour.

Leaving from Capo Vaticano and passing through scenic roads, mule tracks and dirt roads, we will make you discover our wild and beautiful hinterland, rich in history and traditions; you will see ancient Saracen watchtowers such as the Torre Marrana, water mills, small villages overlooking the sea, the mysterious stone town of Zungri, the beautiful town of Tropea.

We have the possibility of different routes suitable for everyone:

 

TOUR 1: Torre Marrana

 

* Excursion suitable for everyone, recommended for beginners who want to become familiar with these vehicles. *

 

 

After registration and a short briefing on the use of the vehicle and the route, we will depart from our base camp riding our powerful quads.

First we will travel on a secondary asphalt road until we reach a panoramic point that divides the coast of Capo Vaticano from that of Joppolo.

After a short stop for a few photos, we will climb Mount Poro to the village of Coccorino and then take old dirt paths through the countryside of Ricadi to reach the Saracen watchtower “Torre Marrana” in the small hamlet of Brivadi.

Here we will be able to enjoy a breathtaking view that goes from the hills of Brattirò to the Aeolian Islands; a beautiful amphitheatre will be the backdrop where a theatrical event called “theatrical sightings” takes place every summer.

After a short stop to admire the view and stretch our legs, we will set off again for the return to the base camp, passing through charming little streets.

Arrival at the base camp and return of the vehicles.

Rules for taking part in quad tours

The quad bike is a four-wheeled vehicle that is highly versatile in covering different types of terrain and which retains the typical characteristics of a motorbike but has the capacity and safety of an off-road vehicle.
To ride an ATV you must be over 18 years of age and hold an A or B licence, which must be shown at the start of the tour.
Each quad bike can carry one passenger in addition to the driver.
The minimum age limit for any passenger is 12 years.
After signing the liability waiver, there will be a short briefing. All excursions will be supervised by a guide who will have the right to interrupt the excursion should he/she find a potentially dangerous situation due to the inexperience and/or irresponsibility of the rider.
The routes may include dirt tracks and impervious areas.

The price is for 2 people. The routes are suitable for people of all ages and families. With us, children have the opportunity to get in touch with nature while exploring and having fun. All along the route, the pace will be a walker’s pace and there will be no running, no overtaking and no unauthorised manoeuvres.
