14th February 2020 - 16th February 2020

During this three-day experience we will explore the extraordinary social life of wolf, following the paths and the valleys of the Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park, participating also to beautiful evening hikes. We will discover its role of predator, its great adaptability to Italian territory, but also the historical and difficult relationship with human being.

Within its borders, Abruzzo keeps a variety of natural environments which you can’t find anywhere else in Europe, in equally man-made territories. Surprising and fascinating environments, able to feed our spirit of adventure. Our programmes have something for any kind of interest, and let you experience the closest contact with nature.

🇮🇹 Dopo l'ultima nevicata i segreti della foresta non sono più al sicuro. Per un istante due lupi hanno abbandonato la loro fila indiana. Per chi sa osservare, il manto nevoso si trasforma in un libro aperto che narra le tormentate vicende notturne del bosco.

🇬🇧 After the last snowfall the forest secrets are not safe anymore. Two wolves cross like a ghosts. For whom can read it, the white blanket is like a book which tells all the stories of the night.

Bentornata! 😆❄ "È bianca. Dunque è una poesia. Una poesia di grande purezza. Congela la natura e la protegge. Dunque è una vernice. La più delicata vernice dell’inverno.
Si trasforma continuamente. Dunque è una calligrafia. È sdrucciolevole. Dunque è una danza. Sulla neve ogni uomo può credersi funambolo.Si muta in acqua. Dunque è una musica. In primavera trasforma fiumi e torrenti in sinfonie di note bianche" (Maxence Fermine)

Un mantello bianco e un pelo folto adatto a proteggerlo dal freddo e dalle intemperie. Un carattere fiero, indipendente, leale e coraggioso che, assieme alla grande stazza, lo rende capace di iniziativa quando si tratta di difendere il gregge. Per secoli Il pastore maremmano abruzzese ha continuato a svolgere le sue mansioni di guardiano tra le montagne dell’Appennino Centrale affermandosi senz’altro come metodo più efficace tra quelli in grado di ridurre l’impatto dei predatori. Avremo modo di scoprire le sue doti caratteriali durante il prossimo Wolf Tracking in Abruzzo in partenza il 2 e 3 Gennaio. .

🇮🇹 In queste settimane abbiamo nuovamente fatto scorte nei nostri rifugi per prepararci a un nuovo meraviglioso #inverno ❤️. Il rifugio Principessa Maria di Piemonte, più comunemente conosciuto come Prato Rosso è situato a Pescasseroli e immerso in una delle più belle e interessanti faggete del territorio dell’area protetta. Costruito negli anni ’30 per volontà del fondatore del Parco Nazionale d’Abruzzo Erminio Sipari rappresenta l’unico rifugio di proprietà dell’Ente sulla sinistra orografica del Fiume Sangro. La struttura è stata realizzata in pietra a faccia vista e cemento, da maestranze locali. Al pian terreno è presente il locale giorno con camino, cucina e un piccolo bagno. All’interno una scala a pioli permette di raggiungere un doppio soppalco in legno e il locale notte con 9 comodi posti letto.

🇬🇧 We love winter ❤️. During the last weeks we worked so hard in order to store food and firewood in the mountain huts. Commonly known as Prato Rosso shelter, this refuge is situated at 1536 metres above sea level and it is surrounded by one of the most interesting and beautiful beech forests of the Abruzzo National Park territory. It was built in the thirties for the wish of the Park’s founder Erminio Sipari and it is the only shelter owned by the Park on the left bank of Sangro River. The shelter was built with stone and cement by local workers. On the ground floor there is a kitchen, a fireplace and a little bathroom; a ladder allows you to go up to a double wooden loft and to the dormitory, with 9 comfortable beds.

🇮🇹 Orsi e lupi non sono le uniche meraviglie che caratterizzano la fauna del Parco Nazionale d’Abruzzo, Lazio e Molise. C’è un’altra creatura meravigliosa considerata una delle entità faunistiche più rare in Italia. Si tratta del Camoscio appenninico, “relitto glaciale” sopravvissuto quasi miracolosamente all’estinzione. All’inizio del ‘900 nell’area che poi sarebbe diventata il futuro Parco Nazionale d’Abruzzo sopravvivevano poco più di 30 esemplari, un numero troppo esiguo per garantire la sopravvivenza della specie. A distanza di un secolo, grazie alle azioni portate avanti dall’Ente Autonomo Parco Nazionale d’Abruzzo Lazio e Molise. possiamo raccontare una delle pagine più belle nella storia della conservazione della natura italiana.

🇬🇧 Bears and wolves are not the only wonders characterising the fauna of the Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park. There is another wonderful creature, which is considered one of the rarest animal species in Italy. We are talking about the Apennine chamois, “glacial relic” which almost miraculously survived its extinction. In the early 1900s, in this area, which later became the Abruzzo National Park, just over 30 specimens survived, a number too low to guarantee the survival of the species. One hundred years later, we can share one of the most beautiful stories in the history of Italian nature conservation.

🇮🇹 La prima neve imbianca le Mainarde molisane e il Matese ❤️. Per gli amanti della natura e dell’avventura il Parco Nazionale d’Abruzzo, Lazio e Molise e il territorio dell’Appennino centrale rappresentano un terreno di incomparabile bellezza. Molti animali non sono facilmente individuabili ed è fondamentale muoversi correttamente sul campo, scegliere il luogo più adatto e il miglior momento dell’anno. Le nostre guide faranno in modo che tutti questi passaggi siano curati e allo stesso tempo saranno in grado di offrirvi molte informazioni sulla biologia e sul comportamento delle singole specie.
