Plan a Family Adventure in the Madonie

This family excursion has been designed by Madonie Explorers to impress and entertain the entire family — from adventurous young children up to five years old or over and able-bodied grandparents. If your family has children eight years or older, you may prefer our Madonie Hike to Piano Pomo’s Giant Hollies. For ten year and older, we also recommend our Caves’ Hike Experience.

There’s something special about Madonie Natural Park that makes most of us feel like young children again, filled with wonder for the bounty of nature. This is why it’s such an incredible tour location for families who want to get out into the great outdoors and see some of the most beautiful landscapes, plants, and animals Sicily has to offer. This family hike has been carefully crafted to ensure it is easy enough for younger children, but still packed full of incredible sights and sounds.

A Magical Madonie Itinerary for all Ages

This Madonie family excursion is the perfect way to instill a love and appreciation of nature into your children. This is essentially the most picturesque and educational family adventure through nature as you all learn and discover the wonders of the woods that grace Sicily’s most beautiful mountains.

Along the trail, monumental trees, flowers, lichens, birds, butterflies, etc. will dazzle and amaze, all while one of Madonie Explorers’ passionate guides teaches you about the ecosystem that makes this unique part of Sicily so special.

The main stop on this family hike will be Piano Pomo, with its picturesque pagliaio (shepherd’s hut) and fairy tales-like giant hollies wood. The whole family will be wowed by the beauty of this place and immersed by the stories of local bandits and brave shepherds.

Where and when to meet?

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 then reach the starting point of the trail in their own vehicle. We do not drive you there.
