My wife and I booked a running tour with Ramon, and it was the best part of our 4 days in Malta. He picked us up at the Phonecia Hotel and drove us to the other end of the island. We had a relaxed run for 1 1/2 hours or so, and saw and learned about parts of the island that we would not have otherwise seen. Gorgeous coast, cliffs, beaches, and history. Thank you Ramon!!!
As a Mediterranean island, Malta has always looked out to the sea. Nowadays, the coastal routes are among the best places for running in Malta. The Sea, Beaches and Nature tour take you across its breathtaking countryside while you get a backstory of the island.
Our running tours in Valletta also cover the city centre, with the beautiful squares, churches and buildings that are almost synonymous with Mediterranean island culture. While the sandy coloured walls are impressive, Valletta offers much more. The Barrakka Gardens act as stunning refuges from the city and the Siege Bell war memorial gives you idyllic views out over the harbour.
Valetta is home to enormous, yet elegant defensive structures that give hints about this strategically located island’s past. Malta changed hands between forces from North Africa, Italy and the UK for centuries before finally declaring independence in 1964.
The defensive architecture is just one part of the story though. While almost everybody on Malta’s three islands speaks English, you’re sure to overhear the unique Maltese language. The mashup of Arabic, Sicilian, Italian and English is also on signposts around the country. Try getting your head around it if you dare.
So when you’re visiting Malta, be sure to check out our running tours in Valletta. Learn about the city and beyond from a local guide for an unforgettable experience. Let’s go running!
