Itineraries on Horseback

The longest horse riding trail in Italy: 470 km of nature and culture...

A long trail to get to know and appreciate an extraordinary environmental and cultural heritage along old mule tracks, cart tracks and paths through landscapes of unscattered beauty, villages and hamlets, pastures, as well as beech and downy oak woods.

The itineraries (in Italian), most of which already exist, are intended to follow those that, for centuries, have connected hamlets and villages divided by the Gran Sasso massif or that have always been used by farmers to reach high altitude cultivated fields.

By Mountain Bike along the Gran Sasso Horse Riding Trail

In the protected area you will find the Mountain Bike Rental Service (from June to October).
In 2011, through the management of the Service, the first mountain cycle touring system was born in the protected area along the track of the Horse Riding Trail of Gran Sasso d'Italia.
To start the program, various ring-routes suitable for bikes have been found around the massif of Gran Sasso, crossing territories at various altitudes but all of great charm and beauty.

Wine-and-food itineraries

Expo and territories

Ten itineraries to discover the excellent agricultural and food products
For those who are so lucky to work in and for this territory, the proposed itineraries are by now a daily routine. The many projects realized by the Park in the last years have often led us to knock on the door of many producers, farmers and processors who offered their knowledge and their experience to follow a common way with a strategical objective: maintain the human presence, strengthen the idea of environmental sustainability and support the coexistence of the anthropic activities with the natural and environmental richness.
Realizing the wine-and-food itineraries in this Park, as it is easy to understand, was therefore not simple. The peculiarity of the orography and the difficulties of the moutain in this part of the Apennines are added to the extraordinary richness of the territory which, in any landscape, implies the exact transposition of food and gastronomy.
We therefore suggest only travel notes, a map to be adapted and integrated "along the way" in order to rewrite it several times, as many as you want.
Have a nice journey…

Remember! The respect of environments comes first, always and everywhere! Especially if it is about a protected area safeguarded by special laws that guarantee the entirety of the natural beauties along your journey. Before leaving find out on our website all the information about the behaviors to observe in the Park area.
