Tour of Carnia.
from May to October 2019
5 days / 4 nights
Carnia is a special territory due to its uncontaminated nature, the valleys and breathtaking peaks and for its authentic culture that you will not find anywhere else. From the sweetest slopes of the hills, to the majestic peaks of the Friuli Dolomites Natural Park, the pleasure of discovery never ends, including waterfalls, canyons and high altitude lakes. Trekking, horseback riding, extreme sports and all winter sports disciplines allow you to live nature in its pure state, while spontaneous architecture and small artisan workshops let you realize the respectful balance that, with nature, has established the population over time.
