Butterfly watching is an amazing and original way to enjoy nature and the Madonie Natural Park is a perfect place for it. It shelters about 100 species of butterflies and some of them are exclusive endemisms (e.g.: Parnassius apollo siciliae, hesperia comma hemipallida, Polyommatus daphnis pallidecolor).

We offer guided butterfly watching excursions for all nature lovers (photographers, hikers, families, researchers, seniors, etc.) with naturalist guide member of AIGAE (Associazione Italiana Guide Ambientali Escursionistiche) and of ALI (Associazione Lepidotterologica Italiana).
