Natura in Friuli Venezia Giulia

A peaceful stroll with the company of our guide will help you explore a landscape of rare beauty, where white cliffs abruptly meet the blue sea. You will be taught how the rock is magically carved by rain to create all sorts of features above and below the ground. Open your eyes wide to embrace the whole Gulf of Trieste and scan around to find specimens of the endemic flora and fauna of this unique habitat. And do not forget to bring a notebook… you may feel the urge to write poetry, like Rainer Maria Rilke did with his elegies during his stay in the nearby Duino castle.

Thanks to its position straddling the mountains, the hills and the sea, Friuli Venezia Giulia boasts an extraordinary array of landscapes, with peculiar habitats and a high biodiversity concentration. Our nature guides will help you discover the varied landscapes and rich wildlife of the alpine, continental, Mediterranean and Illyran habitats. Don’t miss this unique opportunity!

Rosandra valley reserve

A romantic nature haven is there for you to enjoy a short break from city life. You will be guided into a unique encounter with wilderness, to watch different species of birds and rare flowers, as well as rocky concretions and the course of a visible Karst stream. At the end of the trail, your efforts will be rewarded by a stop in a local osmiza to have a glass of wine and taste a mouthwatering dish of cured ham or traditional dumplings. A real treat for your eyes and your palate!
