Come feel like a Sicilian for a few hours, exploring the natural world, farming traditions, and delicious wild foods locals have been foraging for generations. This tour involves some walking but it isn’t as physically demanding as some of our other experiences; this makes it the perfect complement to one of our more active Excursions in the Madonie.
On this Madonie country tour, you will meet Mario on his land at the foot of the Madonie Mountains and immerse yourself in local traditions that hark back to the past but are still a way of life in our beautiful and wild part of Sicily.
The experience includes:
– a guided tour to discover traditional cultivations, edible wild plants and local medicinal plants
– a demonstration of manna production from the ash trees
– tastings (manna, biscuits and bread made from old local varieties of wheat, olive oil and more)
– other activities that can vary depending on the season (picking, planting, tree grafting, traditional balm making, etc.)
You will meet your guide in Castelbuono (Province of Palermo) at 9:00 am.
If you aren’t sure where this is, don’t worry, as you will be provided with a map indicating the meeting point when you book. You can always contact us to ask for more information. Each guest will reach the meeting place with their own vehicle.
