Food & Wine Rural Experience [SHARED TOUR - EVERY WEDNESDAY]

Shared rural tour



Every Wednesday 10.00hrs - 16.00hrs



During this exclusive small-group tour (maximum 14 guests), we will explore rural Malta, meet the locals and enjoy freshly sourced delicacies on a culinary journey off the beaten path.

Our local guide will highlight unique sight-seeing locations with fascinating historical, cultural and ecological importance. You will get to experience village cores and most importantly visit places which are not accessible to the regular tourist... or even locals!

The ethos of these eco-tours is to support the local rural community and the Maltese environment, therefore each activity is built around genuine farmers and artisans.

Amongst other locations, the main villages visited are Siġġiewi, Rabat, Mġarr and the outskirts of Mellieħa. These are are all rural places where agriculture is still predominant. While hopping from one village to the next, we will buy local products direct from the different farmers, an get a glimpse into their everyday life.

All the while, scenic routes are chosen, so that you get to experience the best out of this rural setting. Malta is full of breath-taking view points - from the North-Western region we can also enjoy views of our sister island - Gozo. If you like photography, you'll want to get along your gear!

At one point after making a number of farm stops, we will visit a privately-owned olive grove. This visit would be exclusive for our small group, and here we will meet the farming family and savour the fresh products sourced during the day. The light non-cooked lunch, will be similar to a typical farmer's snack, and includes traditional bread, tomato paste, extra virgin olive oil, olives and other condiments, together with local estate wine. 

At the end of the experience, the guide will accompany you back to your accommodation.
