GTL - Grande Traversata delle Langhe

The Grande Traversata delle Langhe (GTL) is a tour that encompasses an entire territory, the Langhe.

Forget about wine and vineyards, which have only a marginal presence in this tour. Here, you will find pristine nature, cheeses, hazelnuts, castles, and medieval villages where time seems to have stood still. Not far from Alba, you will find a whole other world in which to admire one-of-a-kind landscapes and enjoy all the activities that nature provides in this lovely corner of the world, from hiking to off-road cycling.

Because just one itinerary would never be enough, the GTL provides several that take you to virtually every village, allowing you to choose from hilltop routes or specific itineraries from one village to another. All the routes make use of low-traffic streets, dirt roads, woodland trails and the distances are never excessive, although there are a few longer sections that are recommended mainly for experienced trekker.

Notes

The Grande Traversata delle Langhe (GTL) itinerary is marked with two-way signs bearing the red-and-white markings typically used for hiking trails, as well as with signposts specifically for cyclists.

Signs may fall down at times, but very often there are also (red and white) markings on trees and rocks pointing you in the right direction, especially in the woods and far from paved roads.
