Allied to the natural beauty of the region, there are several outdoor activities that you can do as a family, with your partner or even alone. Get in the car and head here, where you can breathe fresh air, and relax from the daily routine that is sometimes stressful and tiring.
In this region, Nature is present at every step. That is why you cannot miss the Schist Paths. Pedestrian and short routes starting and ending at the same point in the villages. In the past, shepherds, millers, farmers, miners used these paths to perform their jobs. These routes are signposted, and have different levels of difficulty, all of which are marked so that you can do them independently.
There are also, for the more adventurous, some trails that allow you to be in contact with Nature in its purest state. To do running or cycling, there are 4 trails (Trail of the Vultures, Ultra Trail of the Vultures, Trail of the Mountain Villages, Trail of the Forest of the Kings) in a total of 90km of trails with 4 levels of difficulty.
