Elba island, which covers an area of 223 sq. km. is suitable for a large amount of different sports.
There are many trails for mountain-biking, hiking or horse riding: these provide a perfect opportunity to admire stunning panoramas of the protected area of the natural Park of the Tuscan Archipelago, created in 1996. It is worthwhile known that the flora and the fauna of the 7 islands form the largest marine park in Europe (www.islepark.it).
Two kms from Morcone there is the start of a mountain-bike and trekking trail that leads to Mount Calamita. Every year on the 7th and 8th October there is the Gran Fondo Elba Ovest (GF), a 21 km leisure mountain-bike event..
All over the island there are well equipped centres with instructors to assist people taking part in sports like free-climbing, paragliding, tennis, mini soccer and golf.
Elba Island is the perfect place to enjoy any kind of sport while totally surrounded by nature.
