Calabria is one of the southernmost provinces in Italy, often referred to as the “toes of the boot”. Calabria is a long and narrow peninsula stretching from Basilicata region to the north, to the Strait of Messina – the divide between Calabria and Sicily. The whole peninsula is literally covered in natural wonders! It is a spectacular place to visit and should be a definite must on your next nature adventure to Italy.

Nature of Calabria

There are three mountain ranges in Calabria – Pollino, La Sila and Aspromonte. Pollino Mountain serves as a natural border between Calabria and the rest of Italy. The most interesting aspect of this mountain is its fauna - Pollino is home to a big population of the rare Bosnian pine.La Sila is a mountainous plateau known as the “great Wood of Italy”. There are numerous lakes and dense forests in La Sila, as well as some of the tallest trees in the country – some of them can reach heights of 40 m. This mountainous area is also known as the place with the cleanest air in Europe. Aspromonte is a massif on the southernmost tip of the peninsula. The Aspromonte area is full of wide man-made terraces which sharply dive into the sea.

The beaches as a rule are something you shouldn’t miss. Capo Vaticano is one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen – fine sand, long beach, a natural shade from old trees and a crystal clear water. What else do we need? Maybe a glass of Aperol Spritz to accompany us?

Activities

The beaches of Calabria are the perfect spot for water sports. Windsurfing, kite surfing, scuba diving and kayaking are among the popular sports, practiced even by locals. Scuba diving and snorkeling allow you to explore and learn more about marine life along the Italian coast while enjoying the beautiful waters of the sea.

Lao River on the other hand will take you on a rafting adventure through the Sila gorges. If you want to try a new adrenaline-boosting activity, try canyoneering in the same river. This means that with the help of an expert guide you can walk the river, using rope to descend in the more difficult parts of the river. This is a true test for your will and your physique.

We haven’t forgotten about hikers. We know how great a hike through Italy is and believe us when we tell you that we live for these specific panoramas every day! The Monte Sant’Elia Loop trail goes on for 2.5 h, but if you have the expertise, we advise you to take this route. The paths are easily accessible and provide some of the most stunning views we have ever seen throughout Europe. You will not only have a chance to immerse in the scenic landscape of the Tyrrhenian Sea coast, but also in the breathtaking panorama of the Messina Strait.
