“Coop Outdoor – I Love Francigena 2024”: free hikes with Coop are back!

With the arrival of spring, the “I Love Francigena” hikes – a format including a series of free hikes open to all those who want to travel along the official route of the Via Francigena – are back. The initiative is supported by Coop, one of the leading brands in large-scale distribution and a partner of the EAVF since 2022, which also this year will accompany us in discovering Italy from north to south.

Involving its six million members, Coop aims to promote a healthy and sustainable lifestyle by organizing outdoor events with the EAVF to explore and rediscover our territories with their scenic, gastronomic, and cultural beauties.

In 2022, thanks to the partnership between Coop and the EAVF, the “Coop Outdoor” project was launched, consisting of 13 free excursions involving 291 participants in Piedmont, Lombardy, Emilia-Romagna, Liguria, Tuscany, and Lazio. Last year, the renewal of the collaboration led to 16 Coop Outdoor events involving 415 hikers, with the addition of the Puglia region to the calendar. Furthermore, in 2023, some Coop stores also participated, offering refreshments to travelers at the end of the events. The 2024 edition will be part of the celebrations for the thirtieth anniversary of the certification of the Via Francigena as a Cultural Route of the Council of Europe, which took place in 1994.
