Trekking in Sicily means discovering the fragrance of clean air, finding yourself travelling many more kilometres than you had planned, in surprising natural surroundings, reaching a mountain hut, a lake behind a clearing, a beach within a protected area.
It also means meeting simple people who love nature and who enjoy meeting in the evening around a cheerful table, in front of a dish of local produce and a glass of wine, chatting about the day spent together.
Speaking of trekking, there is much to discover in Sicily!
There are five Regional Natural Parks: theParco dell’Etna, the Parco Fluviale del Fiume Alcantara, the Parco delle Madonie, theParco dei Nebrodi and theParco dei Monti Sicani.

A vast heterogeneous and eminently user-friendly heritage.
