If you are looking at this one week holiday why not make your stay two weeks by joining us on Italy's Upland Wilderness.

Gran Sasso ‘Large Rock’ in Italian accurate describes this region. The Gran Sasso National Park is home to the second largest mountain range in Italy, beaten only by the Alps.

Our two centre holiday starts in the typically rural Italian Caramanico Terme where many of our walks focus around the Majella and Gran Sasso National Parks and its high-altitude peaks of Monte Morrone and the impressive Voltigo Valley.

Rocca Calascio, our second centre offers rustic charm under the watchful and oddly securing gaze of the town’s mountain fortress perched high above. Along our walks the region offers possibilities to spot chamois, fox, golden eagles and we are lucky the possibility of the Apennine wolf and bear.

At the Refugio Della Rocca we now have the opportunity for you to share a Mixed Dormitory Room with Shared Facilities should you wish.
