Discovering the bear (bearwatching)

On the traces of the Marsican brown bear, with bearwatching, packed lunch at the hut and evening excursion

This excursion is certainly the best known among our initiatives ... the hike over the years has given us much satisfaction and allowed us to get closer to the bear. After an adjustment path that will allow us to learn about the habitat and life of the bear, we look carefully grasslands waiting for bear , but also of other animals (deer, wild boar, deer and wolves). After sunset, we head back at the hut for packed lunch of typical and biological products of the Park. After dinner, the descent begins, in the dark, under the stars, with the help of some weak flashlight. We advise everyone to read carefully the rules of "Ecosofia", to help the guides to conduct a stakeout in full respect of the animals.
