Want to see Malta in a completely new way? Well, why not try a Segway?
These two-wheeled vehicles are the perfect way to get around, and we absolutely loved whizzing through the countryside. At 250m above sea-level, Dingli is one of Malta’s highest points so you’re guaranteed plenty of gorgeous views along the way, including a glimpse of Filfla, a tiny outlying islet that has actually been declared a protected nature reserve.
One of the most popular routes starts in Dingli, giving you the perfect vista of the cliffs and out to sea.
Joined by a knowledgeable guide, you’ll go at your own pace and stop to take plenty of pictures along the way. Highlights of this tour include ample exploration of one of the most picturesque parts of Malta, as well as a ride down to Buskett, which is arguably the island’s only forest. However tours aren’t limited to Dingli; you could book to see Valletta, the Three Cities, Mdina, Mellieha and even Gozo.
And, if you’re worried about how to ride a Segway, don’t be. Each trip starts with some careful orientation, giving you the time to get to know your vehicle. It can feel a little strange at first as Segway riding is all about balance, and your body will need to get used to being in control. But trust us: once you’ve got the hang of it, this will be the most fun you can have on two wheels and it’s ideal for adults and teens over 14.
