Molise: Lake Occhito 2021
Lake Occhito-located between Molise and Puglia-with its 210 million cubic meters of water, represents the second largest artificial reservoir in Europe in terms of capacity. The dozens of roads and lanes that intersect around its perimeter between cultivated lands and small woods, spontaneously build an exciting path to be practiced on horseback. Therefore, this precious basin is the beating heart of the “riding” adventure that we offer you. Three days spent in nature, riding a horse, discovering the rich wildlife heritage of the reserve, almost untouched recesses, on the border between two regions . we will be very carefull about the food choice , another focus of this experience. In fact, meals based on typical products and local raw materials will always be offered, taken care of by two historic Molise agritourism structures.
Departure dates from April to October on request with a minimum of 3 participants
PARTICIPANTS: MIN 3 MAX 8
