Spring is the best season for traveling to Abruzzo and for observing the Marsican brown bear. Roe deer, woodpeckers and owls peek out from the margins of the beech forest. The most colourful and rare orchids are at their best. Also in the villages you can breathe this feeling of reawakening after a long and cold winter sleep.
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.
Travel in small groups with local guides for a more genuine experience. We work in the field of teaching and photography trips with passion, combining the experience of mountain guides who live in the parks with nature documentation professionals and travel photography professionals.
