“The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences,
and hence there is no greater joy
than to have an endlessly changing horizon,
for each day to have a new and different sun.”
TIBERIO'S GORGES EXCURSIONS
The name of the Agricampeggio is inspired by the Gole di Tiberio, a Geopark site recognized by UNESCO, because they constitute one of the most interesting naturalistic attractions in the area.
They are the result of the millennial work of the waters of the Pollina river which, by digging into the limestone rock, created a suggestive canyon.
The excursion involves crossing the gorges in a raft, about 200 meters long and narrow in some places.
OAfter crossing the gorges, go down to a small beach and proceed with a short walk along the Pollina river reaching the nudist area (a contemporary work of art by Robert Pruitt from 2005) and the small gorges where the most adventurous can take a swim.
The excursions take almost 2 hours.
The Agricampeggio Gole di Tiberio is not only a place for those who want to indulge in rest, relaxation and tasting local products, but it is the starting point for beautiful excursions in the fields, olive trees, ash trees still used locally for the production of manna, the Pollina river, the hills and mountains of the Madonie Park with the possibility of admiring splendid panoramic views of a still uncontaminated nature rich in biodiversity and local peasant traditions.
For those who like trekking there are various routes that can be proposed considering individual needs, with the possibility of discovering the world of fauna and flora typical of the river and mountain landscape.
You can see eels in the river, wild boars, fallow deer, hares, hedgehogs, foxes and the presence of various species of birds is very significant; with a little luck you can admire the golden eagle, the undisputed queen of the Madonite skies with its almost two meters wingspan.
But for those who love to walk with their eyes turned to the sky, bird watching gives the opportunity to spot many other species of birds, from the larger ones such as the griffon vulture, the hawk, the heron, the little owl, the owl, to more small like goldfinches, robins, sparrows and others.
