Hikes and trekking in Abruzzo - Wildlife Adventures

Hikes and trekking in Abruzzo

Abruzzo, an ideal scenario for every passion. Discover with us the wild heart of Italy!

Once the snow has melted and the dazzling greens return to the beech forests and the vast pastures, the Abruzzo mountains become irrestistible. But it’s during the rest of the year that Abruzzo shows itself from its best side. As the seasons change, lights, colours and scents offer new scenarios. A big number of animal and plant species, which were once present in the whole Apennine range, nowadays find their last shelter in Abruzzo. The miraculous conservation of natural environments makes the Abruzzo mountains a truly special place, a kind of big and gorgeous permanent open-air museum, dedicated to the history of the environment and of the landscape, there for us to discover it.
