Civita in the language of the ancient Albanian exiles who settled here in the 15th century means 'nest of eagles', and this tour will take you right into the habitat of these majestic birds of prey, which have dominated the highest peaks of the Pollino National Park for centuries. The journey begins in the picturesque village of Civita, where you will discover its authentic soul and its typical Arbëreshë hospitality. You will visit the Raganello Gorge, a paradise for canyon and canyoning enthusiasts, and admire the immensity of the Ionian Sea. Finally, you will have an immersive experience in close contact with the uncontaminated and wild nature of the Pollino National Park, where you will literally touch the life and growth of the local eagles, devoting yourself for a day to the art of falconry, which has become an intangible cultural heritage of Unesco since 2016. All this immersed in a wild and pure scenery, just like the animals that live in these unspoilt places.
