WHAT TO EXPECT /ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION
Every year between September and October in the Park one of the most exciting natural phenomena is renewed, a mysterious and unforgettable wild call: the bellowing of deer in love.
Male deer echo this kind of dull roar in the valleys, to drive away rival males and defend their own harem of females. Suggestions of sounds, colors and perfumes are superimposed on vocal duels engaged to conquer the supremacy of the female harem. By taking part in excursions with the Park's experts, it is possible to see the deer and watch, from a distance that does not create any disturbance, a ritual challenge between two deer or antler fights.
Medium difficulty excursion (from about 6 to 3 ) in mid-altitude areas where it is easier to spot and hear the bellowing deer even during the day. The Park experts show the numerous traces and tell the habits of this fascinating animal. With a little luck, you may even spot eagles circling the sky in search of prey. Packed lunch. Transfer by own means.
