The Cicerone guide Walking in Abruzzo recommended this. We did a short walk (about 1 hour) before lunch. Shady, well signposted, helpful instructions at the visitor centre. Really beautiful and not many other people there.

Fantastic to walk the three hours tour from Centro Visita through the woods and the beautiful waterfalls and lake. We ate lunch by the beautiful water, and cooled down our feets. Recommend this tour.

Easy to follow paths through beautiful gorges. I wish we brought our swim suits. Peaceful. We had the park to ourselves on a rainy day in early October.

One of the most spectacular sights in the Park - well worth the walk - which you can be shortened if need be. Also worth a visit to the Park Centre nearby.

Walk along the Orfento river, close to Caramanico Terme. The river has carved out a most wonderful steap valley. A well marked footpath guides you along the river, with crystal clear water. In summer there is shade and cooling.

This is the most spectacular gorge - highly recommended for a brilliant day walk from Caramanico. Can be full or half day walk depending on how far up the gorge you venture and how fast you walk...

Wow - what an experience. Caramanico Terme is a small but busy hilltop town, but it has a wonderful secret, the Valley of Orfento. We had to get permission to visit - actually a very easy procedure (just make sure you have proof of identity),...More
