When we consider what it means to be Italian, it's the country's splendid countryside and picturesque villages that first come to mind. This six day trekking holiday gives trekking adventurers a health dose of both, so grab your backpacks and head off into Abruzzo, "Europe's greenest region."

Itinerary Highlights

Your trekking holiday through Abruzzo starts off in Pescasseroli, the beautiful town situated in the heart of the National Natural Park of Abruzzo. Hiking through Abruzzo Natural Park, you'll visit the area's many local villages and learn about its Mediterranean flora and fauna.

The expansive natural park is also home to the historical town of Scanno, with its Renaissance churches and palaces, as well as Villalago with its local crafts museum, and the medieval lakeside village of Barrea. Sulmona, Italy's jewel city replete with historical and art attractions, is your final destination. Don't forget to satisfy your sweet tooth too, as Sulmona is also the home of confetti, the traditional Italian confectioneries.

The next leg of your trip starts in Majella Natural Park where you'll set off fresh from Caramanico. Crossing through the Orfento Valley, you'll hike parallel to the Orfento river, its waterfalls and many small lakes. The trek's final destination is Pietracamela, one of the most beautiful mountain towns in the region.

The last leg of the journey begins at the Gran Sasso Park trail. Crossing a lake and pastures, you'll stop for lunch at a mountain retreat known for its local products. The adventurous can decide to reach the top of Cima Alta for a wonderful panorama of the area, before heading back.
