Sport and Natur
The Ilio Hotel at Capo Sant'Andrea also offers sports and nature activities to discover a different side to Elba and the Tuscan Archipelago
Surprising, strong, intense and luxuriant; in spring, when the broom flowers and the wild orchids, violets and lilies colour the fields, this is when the landscape reaches its peak of splendour. The magnificent mountains of the western area of the National Park, from where you can admire the whole Tuscan Archipelago, along paths and old mule tracks through the woods and Mediterranean maquis, or in the eastern part, the mining mountains, with their distinguishing rust colour, all will amaze and delight. The precious traces left on our island over the centuries, the richness of the flora and fauna, and for climbers, the steep climbs to the highest peaks.
All you need is a little spirit of adventure to discover the secrets of the "other Elba", the less frequented and little known, far from the beach-lovers' paradise. Guests at the boutique Hotel Ilio at Capo Sant'Andrea looking for profound contact with nature, or simply seeking new experiences on holiday, will be surprised by the many sport and nature activities offered by the Island of Elba and by the National Park of the Tuscan Archipelago; from extreme sports, such as free-climbing, to less strenuous sports such as tennis and golf; mountain bike excursions, trekking on foot or by horse, archeotrekking, and endless opportunities for lovers of bird watching and bio watching to appreciate the rich variety of the Island's fauna and flora.
