An Exclusive Day Trip into Hidden Sicily

The Madonie mountains are extremely rich in nature, picturesque villages and fascinating local traditions. This guided road tour has been designed to allow you to capture the spirit of this unknown part of Sicily in one day.

At every stop we will take easy short walks to explore winding streets and ancient ruins, enjoy breathtaking panoramic views and immerse ourselves in amazing nature sceneries. In particular, we will visit a geological site which is a shrine of exceptional biodiversity, stop at places that harbor incredible stories of shepherds and bandits, meet one of the oldest trees of the Madonie and stand in front of a cliff which hosts a couple of golden eagles. From July to November, we will have the opportunity to meet some of the last traditional shepherds.

The tour includes stops in 3 local villages and 3 natural sites. If you are more interested in a particular topic (e.g.: street or landscape photography, biodiversity, etc.), please contact us so that we can offer you the best-tailored experience.

Where and when to meet?

You will meet your guide at 8.30 am at Castelbuono (Province of Palermo).
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.
