Just a two-hours’ drive from Rome, the Abruzzo National Park is a 150,000 acre protected area in southern Italy. It is crossed by only one paved road and is an area of stunning wilderness.
Two-thirds of the park’s surface is covered with vast forests of beech, fir, pine, oak, yew, ash, maple and other trees. These forests are home to populations of many species including the endangered Marsican brown bear, Italian wolf, red and roe deer, fox, chamois, wild boar, wildcat and lynx.
We had a wonderful group travel to Abruzzo with us in September last year – think stunning views, safari-style sunset drinks, expert guides, charming hotels, beautiful Italian food, fine wines, starry skies, dancing fireflies, a hidden cabin tucked high in the mountains, wildlife-watching, tracking bears, mountain walks, and true wilderness.
Here are some of their photos which set the scene.
