Epiphany by wolves

An Epiphany different. Every day we will walk along the trails of the park in search of animals, following the tracks and signs of presence that they leave on the mantle of snow, also helping with snowshoes.

Wolves in the snow
  • Wolves in the snow

An 'Epiphany in the nature surrounded by the mountains and the snow-covered forests of the National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise.
A room dedicated to the Apennine wolf (Canis lupus italicus) lord of winter, and between the valleys of the Park has found an ideal habitat to live and hunt, taking refuge in these forests even in the most difficult for its survival.
Every day we will walk along the trails of the park in search of animals, following the tracks and signs of presence that they leave on the mantle of snow, also helping with snowshoes.
Not to mention the evening excursion to wolf-howling "in the footsteps of the wolf".
We will sleep in a small hotel, family-run, where we will enjoy the hospitality and fine cuisine of Abruzzo.
