Almost entirely surrounded by water and composed of rolling hills, Puglia is an outdoor enthusiast's wonderland. There's no shortage of outdoor fun to be had, whatever your interests, so here are a few of the best ways to get outside in Puglia.

Water Adventures
Head for any of the region's beaches during the summer months to join countless Italians on their annual holiday and dive into the water along with them. Swimming in the sea is a popular summer pastime, partly to cool off in the hot weather, but there are also other activities for the more adventurous. Hire a boat for a day to explore parts of Puglia's coast that aren't accessible from land (including sea caves) and to escape the beachfront crowds. Go snorkeling around one of the beautiful islands just off Puglia's coast, or give yourself an adrenaline rush with some kiteboarding. And of course, feel free to reward yourself with an extra scoop of gelato later.

Land Experiences
Puglia offers plenty of areas for great hiking, including Gargano and Salento. Explore caves and canyons in Otranto-Leuca Natural Park, watching for wildlife as you soak in the scenery. Alternatively, feel the southern Italian wind in your hair with a Vespa tour through the countryside, or learn about Puglia's famous olive oil on a bike tour through the heart of the region. You can also let someone else do the heavy lifting while you enjoy the sights on a rickshaw tour. City dwellers can opt for a biking or walking tour through Bari or Lecce to gain a better understanding of the area.

Cultural Activities
One of Puglia's most famous attractions is the town of Alberobello, which is a delight to explore on foot. Walk among its unique cone-shaped trulli houses on charming streets; spend a day checking out some of the region's historic castles; or get out into Puglia's vineyards to learn about the wines of the region on a wine tour.
