Calabria's ancestral soul is its mountains. The last offshoot of the Southern Apennines, a veritable "finis terrae" of the European continent. A mountain that constantly communicates with the sea and is unique in Italy in having three National Parks: Pollino, Sila and Aspromonte.
The Calabrian portion of the Pollino National Park (southern side) includes 32 municipalities in the province of Cosenza, its symbol is the ancient Pino Loricato and it boasts several UNESCO geosites. The Sila National Park, whose symbol is the Sila wolf, extends across the provinces of Cosenza, Catanzaro and Crotone (Sila Greca, Sila Grande and Sila Piccola). It is home to dozens of Natural Reserves, the most important of which is the Giants of Fallistro Reserve. Among its woods you can breathe "The best air in Europe", certified by a team of expert biologists. The Aspromonte National Park covers the entire province of Reggio Calabria and once again boasts UNESCO Geosites with surprising shapes, as well as several trails, including the Sentiero dell'Inglese, dedicated to the Grand Tour.
In addition to the National Parks, Calabria offers unspoilt experiences in Serre Regional Park (VV), in 9 Nature Reserves from north to south, 2 Nature Reserves (Lake Angitola WWF and Lake Ariamacina) and Foce del Neto Special Protection Area (KR).
