5-hour hike through the amazing Madonie National Park

We designed this full-day hiking trip to help adventurous guests see the very best of the Madonie Natural Park. This is our favourite place in the world, and we love nothing more than sharing it with curious, like-minded people. Read all about this day-long hiking trip in Sicily’s Madonie Park, and please feel free to get in touch if you have any follow-up questions.

Traversing the diverse habitats of Madonie National Park

On this Madonie excursion, we will reach some of the most beautiful places of the Carbonara Massif. We will enjoy many beautiful panoramic viewpoints as our guides know all of the best spots along the trail.

 On clear days, we will be able to see as far as Mount Etna. Herds of fallow deer, raptors, corvids, and butterflies can often be seen.

We will traverse through a huge range of habitats, including woods of evergreens, mountain pastures rich in rare plants and butterflies, karst dolines, woods of beech trees (the southernmost ones in Europe), centuries-old trees, and an ancient wood of giant holly trees.

 If you’re interested in the Madonie’s unique giant hollies, you might like to also consider our dedicated Madonie Hike to Piano Pomo’s Giant Hollies.
