About your host

Hi! I am Antonio, I am member of the Italian Alpine Club. Since I was a child, I have always looked for new places to explore. Now, my dream is becoming reality. I crossed Calabria coast to coast, and help my father with the activity of certified Guide in the Pollino National Park.

What we’ll do

We will explore a fantastic naturalistic area where Turket Oak, butcher's broom, maple and beech are just a frame to the real kings of the forest: chestnut trees. We will get closer to the king, called Castagno del Ramarro (the Lizard's Chestnut), a 6 centuries-old monument, which measures 16 m in circumference. We will taste what the season has to offer right under the branches of the tree…

Where you'll be

Besides the forest, there's the chance to have a look at two eighteenth-century daggers, kept in a private villa. They were found inside the tree's cavity, used as a refuge, allegedly by a local bandit. With a bit of luck, we could have the chance to admire some of the animals that live in the Pollino Park, such as roe deers, black squirrels, wolves, salamander.
