The Foresta Umbra forest

Exploring Gargano's green heart

Many of you, attracted by the evocative sea caves and the fishermen's trabuccos, probably imagine the Gargano area is all about clear blue waters. Well, you are, partly, right. Yet, such view is simplistic.

As a matter of fact, Italy's spur is also covered by a vast green area, rich in flora and fauna featuring a wealth of species, in other words, by the Foresta Umbra forest.

Yet, do not be tricked by the name, as it actually has nothing to do with Umbria (another Italian region) but is 100% Apulian. Umbra means shade, as the sunshine does not always manage to filter through its dense foliage.

Fact file

Book a trip at Hotel Portonuovo in Vieste, and treat yourself to a legendary-mystery tour of the impressive   Foresta Umbra forest in the Gargano area. Special jeep safari options are available.
