  • A show that leaves you breathless wild beauty unspoiled spectacle of nature. They also organize trekking in avalanches that we route but they say it's worth it to do.

  • The area of Badlands in Basilicata is quite broad and embraces the territory of many municipalities but the area around Aliano is probably the most fascinating and accessible. You can take the main road that connects the Valle d'agri to Alianello and Aliano, Craco, Stigliano, stopping along the way, make minor deviations, leave the car in the parking areas and advancing along the trails. The surrounding landscape will reward you amply for lost time and commitment. The Badlands stretch as far as the eye with blades, spires, pinnacles, steep valleys, assuming different coloration depending on the season and hosting not only flowers and wild plants and olive groves, but also housing, abandoned and not, agricultural buildings, caves, sheepfolds. The eyes and the heart will excite and the senses are alert, affected by scents, chirping, flashes of light and wind. I visited the area in late April, when Brown and yellow in the landscape of the Earth blend to green grass, while probably their characteristic aspect is more barren and harsh. Advice to lose at least one day of trekking and walk away. It's worth it.
