We explore Mountains and environments

Let’s Enjoy the Wonders of the Mountains Together

Do you want to go hiking in the Pacific Northwest with those interested in Italian culture and travel? If so, consider joining our group – the only Club Alpino Italiano (CAI ) subsection outside Italy!

Club Alpino Italiano (CAI), Italian Hiking Club, Pacific Northwest Subsection of Pisa, is an organization dedicated to promoting the knowledge, study, protection and enjoyment of the mountains, the natural environment and cultures, especially of the Pacific Northwest and Italy. We sponsor monthly hikes and other activities in the Seattle area and organize trips and exchanges to Italy and other countries.


Our local Club Alpino Italiano (CAI-PNW), sponsors monthly hikes and other activities (including Italian cultural activities) in the Puget Sound area which are led by club members. Guests are welcome to join us on our monthly hikes by contacting the hike leader.

Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.
