An adventure in the wild heart of the Apennines
For adventure lovers we organise a weekend of thrills. We will explore the beauty of our area on mountain bikes along the Via Flaminia, on the top of Monte Nerone with its sweeping views, with torches inside the mysterious dark caves of Monte Nerone and a spot of rock climbing to admire the cool green Fosso dell’Eremo. Not only is the adventure thrilling, but also educational as it will teach us to respect rules and help each other in difficult moments. Despite the adventure element of the trek, we guarantee complete safety. We also supply mountain bikes, helments, torches and climbing harnesses. You will need your own car to get from one place to another.. Suited to children aged 11 upwards.

We will stop at some interesting and panoramic points such as archeological sites, the Fish Farm in Cantiano (with a special visit), the giant potholes of the Burano river and a descent down the river gravel bed.
Day two – The discovery of the Nerone caves: using your own cars, you will drive to Serravalle di Carda where the excursion along the high trail of the Val d’Abisso begins. From here there are breathtaking views of the deep gorge below. We walk through the mixed beech and yew forest, in which we can admire the yew, a rare pre-historic conifer. We will enter the cave easily. We can walk not more than about 100 metres and must be careful not to slip. In small groups you can visit one of the lateral tunnels, full of mammillary stalactites and other such formations.
