This hike will lead you to an area of the Madonie Park rich in huge, monumental trees. There are uncharacteristically large oaks, maple trees and beech trees, but one species stands out from the others…
Our main stop on this Madonie hiking tour is in a truly extraordinary place: an entire wood of giant hollies, comprised of more than 100 trees. These gargantuan holly trees reach nearly 20m high and are several centuries old. You will discover together with our nature guide how such a place can exist and why it is so special.
If you like the sounds of this excursion and you’d like a longer hike in which to experience the Madonie Natural Park, you might like to consider our Full-Day Hike in the Madonie Park instead.
We will stop at Piano Pomo (1,400m) and Cozzo Luminario (1,512m): here, we will enjoy amazing panoramic views over the mountains and the coast. On clear days, we can even see as far as Mount Etna.
Along the trail, you will be able to observe many interesting plants and rare endemic species. On your way, you will also cross paths with some of the Madonie Mountains’ inhabitants: birds, fallow deer, butterflies, coleopters, etc. Keep reading to learn more about this Madonie hiking trip, and please get in touch if you have any questions.
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.
