We want to carry tourists, hikers and travelers by wild places, ancient and remote that reveal the real identity of the southernmost mountain in Italy, in the middle of the Mediterranean sea. There is a legacy of history, culture, traditions, gastronomy, biodiversity and beauty that few persons know: each of our proposal is a synthesis.
We offer trekking, nature and cultural tours, tourist and gastronomic trips.
