New trend: YOGA ON SAILING BOAT
Yoga on a sailing boat, sailing in the Tuscan Archipelago, between Elba, Pianosa, Capraia, Montecristo. It is one of the best activities for the summer 2017, launched by ItalyCharter (www.italycharter.it) one of the main Italian operators for the rental of sailing boats (available 6,700 boats of various Italian shipowners). By day boats sail between some of the most beautiful islands in the Tyrrhenian and when the wind drops people start yoga activities on the bridge of boats, with the support of a teacher. A particularly intense sensory experience that combines physical exercise to the spiritual dimension, at the immense blue expanse, lulled by the rolling of the waves, immersed in deep silence of the sea.
The formula provides for meditation and yoga, assisted by the master, after a day of sea, sun and sailing. It does not require any preparation, only passion for the sea and for yoga, and the desire to find physical well-being and inner peace. The sea, from this point of view, is in fact an invaluable ally. “It is one of the initiatives of the season in 2017 – explains the CEO of ItalyCharter, Francesca Bedeschi – season that promises to be very good for our seas. In the first 4 months of the year, in fact, we recorded a 87% increase in bookings compared to last year, a sign that the summer 2017 will be the summer of the Italian seas. Do not forget that Italian seas are among the most beautiful in the world, not only from an environmental and naturalistic point of view, but also historical and cultural”.
New trend: CLIMBING BY BOAT
Climbing on the cliffs overlooking the sea? The climbing by boat is trendy in Italy, one of the best “summer 2017 ideas”. ItalyCharter (www.italycharter.it), a leading Italian operators for boats rental (a fleet of 6,700 boats of various Italian ship owners), takes you to the sailing at the foot of some of the most beautiful cliffs in the Tyrrhenian sea, which are among the most challenging ever for free climbing, and that can be reached exclusively from the sea: the cliffs of Cala Brigantino and Palmarola Cathedral, and the walls overlooking the sea of Fetovaia and Capo Sant’Andrea Elba.
The climbing starts directly from the sailboat and culminates with the trekking at altitude and subsequent recovery of the climbers, in the evening, in one of the neighboring coastal areas. Dinner and overnight on board. And the next day ready for the next climbing. “It is an experience that combines the passion for the sea with the passion for climbing – says Francesca Bedeschi, ItalyCharter CEO – and which allows, at the same time to admire unique landscapes, cliffs on the sea, beautiful inlets and bays, otherwise reached: emotions that only Italian seas can offer you”.
