What to see in Malta?
– Mdina: a notable city, the ancient capital of Malta, located at the highest point of the island
– Valletta: the nation’s capital, a UNESCO heritage site since 1980
– Gozo: the second largest island of the archipelago and the ideal place for nature lovers
Trekking in Malta and Gozo unfolds on this second island starting from the village of Nadur, known for its grotesque carnival and delicious Gozitan-style ftiras. We will pass by the famous Ramla Bay, the most beautiful Calypso beach in the entire archipelago, the scenic Tal-Mixta Cave and the small picturesque bay of Dahlet Qorrot known for its typical docks carved out of stone. We will also be sure to visit the Victoria Citadel.
LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY: Most Maltese trekking routes can be classified as easy trails. Malta is an island with undulating terrain but no challenging elevations (about 260 meters above sea level is the highest point).
The dirt roads are mainly rocky, but we will also walk on sandy or low-traffic roads and also along some paths with a clay surface.
We will encounter some short steep climbs (70/80 meters high in elevation) usually no more than a couple per route.
When to visit Malta?
The best time to visit Malta is from October to April due to the most ideal temperatures with some caution such as the need to stay hydrated and not to over exert yourself
Malta is not particularly rainy and in winter temperatures rarely drop below 10 degrees, but the island is very windy. Therefore, a good windbreaker, preferably a waterproof one, will be your best travel companion.
