New year day with the wolves

A New Year different from others. 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.

Un Capodanno diverso dagli altri, all'insegna della natura immersi fra le montagne e i boschi innevati del Parco Nazionale d'Abruzzo, Lazio e Molise.
Un soggiorno dedicato al Lupo appenninico (Canis lupus italicus) signore dell'inverno, che fra le valli del Parco ha trovato l'habitat ideale per vivere e cacciare, rifugiandosi fra questi boschi anche nei momenti piu difficili per la sua sopravvivenza.
Ogni giorno passeggeremo lungo i sentieri del Parco alla ricerca degli animali, seguendo le tracce ed i segni di presenza che essi lasciano sul manto innevato, aiutandoci anche con le ciaspole (racchette da neve).
Senza dimenticare l'escursione serale di wolf-howling "sulle tracce del lupo".
Dormiremo in un alberghetto a gestione familiare , dove potremo apprezzare l'ospitalita e la buona cucina abruzzese.
