What you'll do

In this experience, you will learn about the history of western Sicily through a wonderful hike along the coastal paths of the Monte Cofano Nature Reserve. This limestone promontory of 659 m, which dominates the coast between the Gulf of Bonagia (westside) and Cofano (eastside), constitute a unique landscape, consisting of rocky spiers, cliffs, caves and small coves of crystal water. By making a loop in the Reserve, we will guide you in the footsteps of the civilizations that populated this territory (from prehistory to the present day) as well as on privileged sites for swimming and for observing endemic flora and fauna. Technical sheet : - Altitude: from 5 to 350 meters - Duration: 7 hours (including lunch break and swimming) - Level of difficulty: Accessible to the whole family

Alberto

I am Sicilian and an official visitors guide, working within Sicilian cultural sites and nature reserves for more than 10 years. My experience led me to imagine alternative guided tours, combining trekking and History, allowing me to tell and transmit the Sicilian identity with enthusiasm and passion. With Marie, French by birth and Sicilian by adoption, we propose the most beautiful experiences of our hikes, which will allow you to know the remarkable cultural and archaeological sites that contain the natural reserves of Sicily.
