- 5 days gentle guided walking
- Low altitude throughout

All hotels have been specially selected for their location, character and comfort. They are classed as premium, based on these specifics in addition to the star rating. We stay in 3 and 4 star hotels, often renovated traditional buildings, and we spend one night in a typical Masseria - a traditional farmhouse - surrounded by olive groves and overlooking the sea. The accommodation in Alberobello is less charming than the other hotels used on this trip, however it's comfortable, has an outdoor swimming pool and is and one of the best in town.
All rooms are en suite and the hotel in Alberobello features a swimming pool. Room upgrades are available on request.

Activity Level 2, Leisurely/Moderate During the days we walk for 3 to 6 hours (including lunch and photo stops). The terrain and type of path will vary from manmade paved tracks and tarmac to gravel. The walks are easy, although some ascents and descents should be expected, so a reasonable amount of fitness is required. Please be aware that Puglia can also be very warm, possibly reaching 30 degrees in the summer.
Normal group size and age
Normally 6 to 16, plus local leader. Minimum age 16.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
In order to provide a more accurate grading system, where a trip falls between two grades we use an intermediate or split grade, for example Leisurely/Moderate. Occasionally, there are optional activities available en route, in this case the optional grade is indicated in brackets, for example Grade Challenging (climb Tough+). Clearly, conditions may differ from region-to-region or month-to-month and as such the information given on these pages is designed to act as a guide only. In all cases you should refer to the respective holiday's Trip Notes for further details.
Walking & Trekking: Trips are wholly trekking-focused or simply include a significant number of walking days during the itinerary.
Culture: Let Exodus show you a different side to many of the world's greatest cultural attractions.
Where you stay is a crucial part of a holiday, and we have gone to great lengths to find accommodation that provides extra comfort, character, convenience and value. Five-star hotels won’t feature on the agenda, but itineraries guarantee a greater degree of comfort after your day’s efforts.
