PROGRAMME

Fantastic but challenging trek through the mountain beech forests and up to the panoramic topmost meadows of Monte Catria, to the cross standing at 1700 metres.. The excursion starts from Infilatoio: a valley situated 1400 metres on a vast pass which divides the two main peaks of Catria. Once up by the cross, walkers can admire the sweeping views of the Sibillini mountains in the south as far as the Tuscan-Romagnola ridge towards the north. On a really clear day it is possible to observe the  Adriatic sea as far as the Croatian coastline. Walkers then descend through a beech forest and enter a spectacular glacial cirque called “Buca della Neve” (hole in the snow) and once they reach the road, they return to the departure point. During the time at the top visitors will be able to see mountain animals such as the red-billed chough, funny red-billed members of the crow family which accompany the mountain walkers up to the highest points and astonish with their spectacular flight.
