Basilicata to climb: Mountaineering itineraries in the mountains of Basilicata

Journey through the Lucanian Apennines

Forests, natural parks, mountains, large protected areas, ski slopes and routes to climb: Basilicata is also this. Under the cold snowy winter there is a region that deserves a closer look to capture its infinite beauty.

The stupendous Pollino massif, with peaks rising to over 2,000 metres.

A secluded corner, with villages that climb the slopes and look like something out of a storybook. For skiing, a handful of kilometres of rings for cross-country skiing, a longer route for hiking, trails through the woods with snowshoes, climbs to the peaks: the Pollino is the other snow, far from the crowded destinations of the Italian winter circuit. 

Strongly in harmony with the ingredients now sought after by mountain tourists: nature, authenticity, relaxation, well-being.

The show is served and the possibilities of experiencing the mountains properly are endless.

Climbing and mountaineering in the Pollino massif

Just hearing these two words brings to mind images of incredible adventures, a gateway to a daydream.

A way to explore the most impervious places hidden from the eye of those who, “less courageous”, decide to stay on the plains. This ancient discipline has one of its first examples, historically ascertained, in a chronicle of 1358. A crusader by the name of Bonifacio Rotario, in order to keep a vow to the Madonna, attempted the then extremely difficult feat of climbing Mount Rocciamelone. 

The conquest of the peaks then passed through exploration, guided by the scientific need to map unknown territories, to arrive at the heroic conquests undertaken by climbers who challenged ever more difficult walls and ever higher peaks.

Mountaineering today is no longer driven by these needs. 

Now anyone who wants to, guided by an experienced guide can embark on this journey and experience the thrill of mountaineering. 

In the Sud Verticale guidebook there are all the tips for challenging the peaks and there is an itinerary that leads to the extreme peaks of the National Park where we find Monte Alpi guarding the Sinni river valley. 

Nordic atmospheres in the South

Not just skiing, then. 

The Lucanian mountains are also nature, hiking and snowshoeing, to be enjoyed with the guidance of expert guides.

Covered with forests and plains often covered in snow, it is the silent home of wolves, griffon vultures, deer and wild cats. And of trees with twisted forms modelled by the wind: the loricate pines, a relict of the last ice age. They are the symbol of a park that is the pride of Italy.

Here, where the wind caresses the slopes and the horizons widen, the possibilities for a new adventure multiply.
