With this fascinating naturalistic excursion at night we will discover the Natural Park of Porto Selvaggio and the Swamp of the Captain, one of the most suggestive places of all Salento. We will do night trekking under the stars through a naturalistic trail that lays along the Ionian coast of Salento, featuring high and panoramic cliffs, fresh pine forests and Mediterranean scrub that lays the coast, karstic caves and springs thrown into the sea that hosts a very important Marine biodiversity. We will do trekking, environmental education and we will go to the Mediterranean scrub with the help of our front lights, immersed in intense scents of aromatic herbs, we will make a leap into prehistoric caves and rock settlements. We will leave from Santa Caterina entering the Wildlife Park of the Wild Harbor, visiting the Cave of Capelvenere of incredible paleontological value. We will visit the Torre dell'Alto with the panorama of enchantment on the bay. We will walk through the Bronze Path and enter the heart of the park along the ancient stairs that will take us to the bay of Porto Selvaggio. Here we will relax and who wants to swim and snorkel under the stars. We will be trekking along the Neanderthal Trail, which winds along the high coast where a number of very important caves are opened. We will also visit the Horse Cave, which is of great paleontological and anthropological value, and then the Baia uluzzo and Uluzzo Tower, where we can enjoy the breathtaking nightlife of the Natural Park. Relaxation and short breaks at the Pike of India. Pause dinner at the sack and relaxation stay. We will be trekking along the Path Trail and then along the Path of Orchids to return to the Bay of Porto Selvaggio from the main path immersed in the greenest and most lush Mediterranean scrub.
