Nebrodi Park

Overview

The green oasis of Sicily

Wild nature, lush greenery and mountain areas, with temperatures that can drop well below zero degrees Celsius: the Nebrodi Park is the Sicily you don’t expect. Covering over 80,000 hectares, between the provinces of Enna, Catania and Messina, it is the largest protected area in the entire region and encompasses a variety of breathtaking landscapes, flora and fauna. Keep your eyes peeled for griffon vultures, golden eagles and especially roe deer, whose Greek name – nebros – inspired the name of the park itself.

You can don hiking shoes in summer and snowshoes in winter and stroll through beech forests, follow the course of streams and climb high rock faces. The Nebrodi Park is a paradise for hiking and outdoor sports enthusiasts. Don’t let your energy run out before you reach the summit of Monte Soro to enjoy unique panoramic views as far as the Aeolian Islands. Among the most beautiful stops along the way, the most outstanding are the Cascata del Catafurco waterfall, the villages of San Marco d’Alunzio and Mistretta, the Rocche del Crasto rock formation and Biviere Lake.

After your excursion, you can restore your energy by enjoying some typical local products: Nebrodi provola cheese, baked ricotta, Maiorchino cheese, Suino Nero cold cuts and much more are sure to delight all foodies.
