Pollino National Park and Maratea Coast


Pollino National Park and Maratea Coast
Basilicata Italy

Your trip begins in Pollino National Park in southern Italy. Comprised within the provinces of Cosenza, Matera and Potenza, the park is the largest in the country and stretches over 1820 km. It takes its name from its highest peak, the Pollino Massif. Founded in 1992, the park includes both natural and archaeological points of interest. The symbol of Pollino National Park is the Bosnian Pine, as this park is one of last places this species can be found in Italy.

Along the way you traverse mainly mountain territory, which is comprised of three main mountain systems. The highest peaks of the park include Serra Dolcedorme (2,267m), Mt. Pollino (2,248m), Serra del Prete (2,181m), Serra delle Ciavole (2,127m), and Serra di Crispo (2,053m).

Animals and humans both inhabit the park, as it is home to both villages and great expanses of nature. Throughout your journey keep a keen eye out for the Gold Eagle, the Apennine Wold, the Roe Deer, the Black Woodpecker, the Eagle Owl and the Raven.

Once you arrive at the coast, take the time to appreciate the coastal beauty of Maratea, located on the Tyrrenian Coast. This coast is a 30 km stretch that breaks out from the verdant landscape of Pollino National Park. The Tyrrenian Coast has yet to be discovered by major tourist markets and its sight can only be described as a small corner of paradise. Surrounded by mountains and a mantel of wood, Maratea’s natural surroundings provide a stunning backdrop to a town also rich in history and culture. Uncontaminated nature, intense light and panoramas will leave you with enchanting memories of this exploration of Basilicata on foot.
