Hiking in Abruzzo

Stunning Peaks and Silent Valleys

Abruzzo is the only region in Italy which can boast three National Parks and this tour explores all three.  Lying to the east of Rome, Abruzzo is a remote and unspoilt region. Beautiful villages perch on the hilltops and are surrounded by the majestic peaks of the Apennine mountains. The parks abound with wild flowers and are home to chamois, deer, wolves and the Marsican bear.  The local people are justly proud of this magnificent region and offer a warm welcome to all who visit.
