After satisfied our palates, we get on our cars and face a steep climb that will take us to Monte la Rocchetta and Monte Mauro, which reach 1000 meters above sea level. Through a path in the woods we reach the highest point of Monte Mauro where a technological astronomical observatory is perched.

The first stop we reach is the Liscione lake with its 1,043 km², we will skirt its shore admiring the surrounding environment. Our goal is to reach the village of Casacalenda by climbing among sunny and suggestive cultivated fields, pine forests and breathtaking views of the lake below.
At the end of the climb, the sanctuary of the “Madonna della Difesa" awaits us; a short stop and we reach the nearby village of Casacalenda for a guided visit of the contemporary art museum located among its suggestive alleys. Visit to the renowned “Bio Sapori” companies and to the “La Fonte Nuova” artisan dairy. Back on the Jeep and again through forgotten streets and steep climbs, we leave to visit the isolated convent of Sant’Onofrio and for the lunch at a farmhouse.

4th day: Chasing the Transhumance – Paths in Tratturi
Breakfast. Meeting with your driver and departure, on off-road vehicles, through isolated streets and mule tracks, towards the legendary Tratturo Celano-Foggia in the shortest possible journey. In sequence we reach Montorio nei Frentani, Montelongo, Santa Croce di Magliano and, finally, we intercept this imposing transhumance route, incredibly 111 meters wide. The surrounding environment is a true uniqueness. From here, the flat Tavoliere della Capitanata Pugliese gives way to the first gentle hills of Molise, offering bucolic landscapes and beautiful views as far as the eye can see. These are the minor and unknown places we want to visit and so we start with the ruins of an ancient mill and the medieval tower of Magliano. We continue until the rural church of Sant’Elena, a “Post Office” (place used as a temporary stop for couriers and stagecoaches that transported people, goods and correspondence) located on the Tratturo in the countryside of San Giuliano di Puglia. We continue on this ancient road and face one of the most inaccessible passages even for transhumants: "Scorcia Capra, the crossing of the Cigno river in this point, swallowed by the sticky, colored clays that creates “lunar landscapes” for the eyes. Gastronomic stop on a farm in Ripabottoni. We pass the Centocelle intersection where the majestic "Celano-Foggia" intercepts the "Centocelle - Taverna del Cortile" track arm and focus on Morrone del Sannio from where we will look out over the spectacular valley bottom of the Biferno river.
