Activities and things to do in Gozo.

Activities and things to do

Gozo is a small island with a long and rich history, a unique landscape and a special natural heritage, which provides many wonderful opportunities for walking. We can provide you with routes for ten different walks ranging from a 50km coastal walk to nine walks ranging from 7km to 13km, one of which starts here in Gharb and passes our front door.

Walks are a combination of limestone and earthen paths, rural tracks, minor roads and coastal promenade. Public buses can be used to reach and return from many points along the route, while cafes and toilets are never too far away. Packed lunches or picnic hampers and route guides are available upon request, just ask for details.

Malta is regarded as one of the greatest diving locations in the world, a paradise for both wreck and scenic diving enthusiasts. The majority of the dives sites can be accessed from the shore whilst some of the more distant wreck sites can only be accessed by boat.



As divers ourselves we can provide details on dive sites and recommend dive centres depending upon your particular requirements and experience/training.

We are also a very good base for the dive sites on Gozo, being handily placed for the Blue Hole and Inland sea sites in particular, but then you can get to any part of the island in less than 20 minutes so it's your choice scenic or wreck, or possibly both.

Horse riding

Lino's Stables specialize in horseback riding and carriage tours in Gozo with or without a lead. Both beginners and experienced riders are welcome to join on one of the rides in Gozo with plenty of beautiful scenery. Rides last for one or two hours, taking you through the beautiful valleys and passages of Gozo, and include interaction with the horses afterwards. Lino's Stables also offer pony cart rides for the younger ones and wedding horse carriages.


Gozo offers people of all ages and fitness levels the chance to enjoy cycling tours around the beautiful island of Gozo. Hop on your bike and follow your preferred route along beautiful, quiet and peaceful countryside roads, explore the villages, churches, temples and other places of interest. Feel the wind in your hair as you pedal along the three hills which are Gozo's national symbol.

Kayak Tours

Kayak tours are a fun way for individuals, couples or families to enjoy the sea, discover caves and relax and swim at hidden beaches. General fitness is required, but there is no need to be an expert - guides are available and will pace the trip to your abilities and make sure there is time to relax and explore.


Climbing and abseiling tours on the island of Gozo are fun and exciting for people of all ages and provide a different way of exploring this great island. Thanks to Malta's and Gozo's climate of 300+ days of sunshine a year, climbing and abseiling tours can be done all year long.
