Itineraries

The territory of the Park is crossed by a thick network of trails developing for about 500 km, giving the opportunity to appreciate its natural beauties and its historical - cultural features.
Going along the Park trails is like glancing through a wonderful book where tales of man and nature are told and represented.
In order to make the hikes throughout the protected areas more appealing, the Beigua Park has in some cases created equipped trails supported by panels and informative material which give visitors the opportunity to appreciate some of the naturalistic, historical, and cultural elements which can be seen along the way.
Within the protected area and in the surrounding territory there are accommodation structures, mountain huts and unattended shelters for long stays, in order to better appreciate the Park trail network.
Moreover, the Park Authority has prepared an efficient network of equipped green areas where you can stop and relax.
