Take the rocky coasts of the famous Mediterranean archipelago with an UltraTrail

From the Baroque buildings of Mdina to the hidden beaches of Ramla, Malta, this small part of Africa, mixing East and West invites you to contemplation.

Between Malta and Gozo, where the UltraTrail stages take place and their coasts falling vertically on the sea by spectacular cliffs, it is a procession of grandiose and technical routes, along coastal paths, that await you to make you live a memorable adventure.

On the Trail program, many paradise beaches sometimes secret, all of white sand, such as Golden Bay, Paradise Bay and Xlendi Bay, coves and typical villages.

Welcome to the smallest state in the European Union and literally in the center of the Mediterranean world. With a warm population and a mild climate, Malta is a treat for all senses. We invite you to embark on a unique Trail journey combining sports activities, beaches, culinary specialties, historical sites or nightlife.

Malta & Gozo Ultra-Trail,
Between the island of Malta and its wild sister Gozo

In order to allow you time to absorb the mild Mediterranean climate, it is with a visit to MDINA and RABAT that the Trail journey begins on this Maltese terrain that happens to be a highlight of hiking, mountain biking and running.

Most of the UltraTrail stages take place on single tracks, never dangerous, often on the edge of high cliffs, with an open view. Between coastal paths, rock bars, beaches, and crossing of several typical villages, some steps may seem short but they take place on a demanding terrain, very technical and require attention.

An alternation of course between Malta and Gozo for a magnificent challenge.
Afternoon to enjoy the Paradise Bay hotel.

The world of Serge, designer of the event

“It will be the 1st raid organized in Malta. During the preparation and recognition, I was seduced by the sublime landscapes of beaches and cliffs plunging into the blue Mediterranean. We concocted great wild stages on Gozo, while preserving time to enjoy the beautiful hotel for sunbathing.”

“We create your travels by putting passion and a taste of
challenge, you will come back full of adventures.”
