Bike tour across tratturi

Bike tour across the tratturi


The tratturi are wide grassy paths, covered with stones or dirt, which were once used by shepherds for the transhumance - or transfer - of flocks and herds from one pasture to another on a
seasonal basis.

The bike tour across the tratturi is a mountain bike excursion that alternates stretches of dirt roads with paved ones, allowing you to enjoy breathtaking views. Guided by locals who know the territory very well, you will have the opportunity to visit hidden places that are rich in history.

Pollino, an excursion on the pristine mountain


The Basilicata is a region that shouldn’t be rushed through to experience, perhaps on foot, in good company, and with a camera at your fingertips. The paths of the Pollino mountain wind along the stillness of shady trails and the ancestral charm of loricate pines. This is a bio-diverse land of an unspoiled nature of panoramas and of unique areas to explore by foot.

Nature lovers shouldn’t miss the opportunity to experience one of the most exciting 2,000 meter high excursions, where trees bear witness to the magic of bygone times. During several periods of the year, when the moon is in its initial waxing phase, you can see the stars and planets.
