The econaut is Umberto Segnini who has transformed his passions into a job. The project was born after a trip on foot to Africa, during which Umberto had the privilege of knowing the Nomads and their way of life. Econauta excursions are nomadic trips that can last from one day to a few weeks. The common characteristics of each trip are the extended times and moving slowly, in silence to get in harmony with the environment that surrounds us. The limited number of people admitted to each excursion allows to be minimally invasive towards the places visited and allows the establishment of a relationship of friendship and complicity between the participants.

Among the trekking offered:

- The Elban Way: a week-long trip along the most beautiful paths of Elba

- Great Elban Crossing

- Weekend trekking on the island of Elba

There are also paths for children and teenagers
