Winter sports in Basilicata

Excitement in the snow
The new "white" philosophy offers a thousand ideas to step off the beaten track, savour the rhythms of authentic villages, taste the delicacies of typical Lucanian cuisine in huts, restaurants and hotels, and experience exciting events. And to capture all the charm of high altitudes, tourist guides, ski schools and ski instructors are a constant presence.
The Lucanian mountains, covered with woods and crossed by more or less beaten paths, are even more beautiful dressed in white.


Experience winter in Basilicata
In the crisp morning air, once you reach a large peak, where the earth ends and only the sky remains, you can feel the breath of the mountain and your gaze is lost in striking panoramas.
The five ski districts, Sellata-Arioso, Volturino, Viggiano, Sirino and Pollino, offer exciting outdoor activities suitable for everyone in the coldest season. With a backpack and boots, skis or snowshoes, on board a bob or on a sled, tourists can conquer the white heart of Basilicata by changing route from day to day or from weekend to weekend.

Horse riding in Basilicata


A unique adventure on horseback

Escaping from the frenzy of everyday life, with the possibility of restoring your inner balance through contact with nature, has led over time to re-evaluate the role of animals in general and of the horse in particular, which is considered not only a “means” to explore a territory but above all a “travel companion”. In Basilicata you can combine the two, a love for nature and passion for horses. Touring Basilicata on horseback offers an immersive experience in unspoiled landscapes far from the chaos and noise of the city, to discover the history and traditions of the places where you choose to stop and to appreciate the genuine and authentic gastronomy.

Authentic contact with nature

There are several routes through the Lucanian territory, whose landscape offers an invitation of particular interest for lovers of equestrian tourism.
All that remains is to saddle the horse and set off to discover Basilicata and to discover oneself, one’s knowledge and the curiosity that drives us to enrich it, to explore, to internalise the positive energy that emanates from a piece of the world that has succeeded in preserving the authenticity of the past, reflected today in an architecture that refers to the past, in a nature still free from today’s technological conditioning and in a group of gastronomic and religious traditions that embellish the territory and whoever experiences them.


Basilicata by motorbike

Time is measured in kilometers. There is no summer or winter: passion on two wheels going in the sun, rain or snow. There are no compasses: space is divided into landmarks and meeting points. A wish to escape. The pleasure of challenging the asphalt and eliminating distances in complete freedom. A desire to discover authentic villages and unexpected landscapes. Touring riders have their own travel philosophy.

Passion on a motorbike
