The Central Apennines are an area of fragile mountain ecosystems, mostly protected. All the places we visit have a high degree of naturalness and are inhabited by a great variety of plants, insects, mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles. Many of these species are endemic, very rare elsewhere or in danger of extinction.
Their survival is also threatened by frequent and intense droughts, exacerbated by global warming and climate change. The landscape of the Apennines is also peculiar in that it has evolved hand in hand with traditional human activity for 500.000 years. For the historical, cultural and ecological complexity of this area, the relationships between the Apennines and the people can be truly innumerable and surprising.
We believe that real nature experiences are a way to help visitors understand the importance of biodiversity and to inspire them to take action to respect nature and to coexist with it. Our outdoor initiatives are focused on reaching long-term sustainable goals with a positive impact on people and the environment. We have clear guidelines in place for sensitive excursions.
Our activities aim at stimulating contact with the territory and its social and cultural realities. We collaborate with locally owned businesses. We give preference to excursions and activities that benefit local communities. We work with local qualified and licensed guides.
Most of our accommodations are small, locally owned and managed, serving traditional home-cooked meals. For the wilder, we offer an unforgettable overnight stay in a mountain hut immersed in the beauty of nature and in the tranquillity of the mountain landscapes.

We are involved in rewilding efforts in the Central Apennines, supporting local NGO-driven sustainable initiatives to promote wildlife-human coexistence and save protected wildlife from extinction through practical, on-the-ground action. Learn more about Our projects.
