A soft awakening will allow us to observe the “La Camosciara” Integral Reserve. This area of Abruzzo National Park is characterized by its apperance and its dolomitic structure; then, in a few hectares it has the main elements of this protected area. This is a real symbolic place and it’s fascinating in every season of the year.

The Integral Reserve established here underlines the high natural value, enriched by numerous plant and animal species present: the Lady’s Slipper, the orchid’s largest and most rare in Europe, the Pinguicula vallis-regiae and the black Pine Villetta Barrea. Tracing the creek Scerto, visit the waterfalls of the Nymphs and Tre Cannelle and observing carefully we will have the opportunity to see some of the animals that inhabit this wonderful valley.
