Waiting for the new Year in the mountains of the national Park of Abruzzo certainly has something magical. The winter period, between christmas, New Year and the Epiphany is ideal for a nice trip in the territories of the Park. For lovers of winter sports, there are many ski resorts in the area, where you spend wonderful days on skis or, more simply, on a sun lounger sunbathing; From pescasseroli, Passo godi (located between Villetta Barrea and scanno), Roccaraso and Rivisondoli The choice is certainly not lacking. There are several sports that can be practiced: from skiing, snowboarding, snowkiting to free ride and more and More. alternatively, If you are not a fan of skiing, I recommend beautiful hikes in the mountains where it will not be difficult to make a close encounter with some beautiful chamois or other typical animal that wanders peacefully in our mountains. There are many excursions that are organized by local expert guides, you just have to choose the one best suited to You. If you prefer something more peaceful, you can certainly not miss a walk in the characteristic villages that in this period are filled with artistic nativity scenes, photographic exhibitions, Tombola and events of all KINDS. An appointment not to miss that of the evening of December 30 with the classic torchlight of the end of the year of Civitella Alfedena. Every year many volunteers go to the mountains, challenging the biting cold to draw with their torches images depicting Christmas and wishing the new year. The evening ends all together in the Piazzale di Santa Lucia, in front of a hot fire tasting a hot chocolate or a good mulled wine.
