In the Aspromonte National Park nature is the protagonist, with peaks that reach 2,000 meters. It is the sixth national park to have been built in Italy, and is characterized by a very rugged territory from the Tyrrhenian to the Ionian Sea, and offers a huge variety of plant species, generating a wide biodiversity, due to the favourable weather conditions. Tourists can admire oleanders and tamarisks but they can also observe the black poplar, the willow and the black alder, thanks to the numerous and abundant presence of waterways. It's easy to walk around the wonderful beech forests, but the greatness of immense and sublime pine forests is owed to the Laricio pine, the emblem of Aspromonte. In this area the bergamot also grows, it is a particularly rare and fragrant citrus, whose essence is well-known, and that flourishes only in some parts of Calabria. The park is also the home of many animal species that find in Aspromonte the ideal habitat. The wolf, for example, that has chosen the Aspromonte mountains as a refuge, but also the wild cat, the dormouse, the wild boar and the black squirrel. It is not difficult to admire foxes, hares, badgers, hedgehogs, weasels and martens. Since 2011, a species that had been absent for centuries, has been reintroduced in the park’s territories: the roe deer. The park is full of wonderful nature trails, some of which are suitable for bicycle paths or riding, skiing and canyoning.
