Fiumara Cortaglia e Vasalu da Conca – Antonimina
A thrill ride awaits you at the end of this trip as you will slide down the water slide into a large pool of water. A short ride along the valley roads brings you to the beginning of this trekking adventure. An experience that will remain with you for a lifetime.
Upon arrival, you will hike a short way into Antonimina, a spectacular mountain town built right on the side of the mountain with its multi levels of roads and buildings. This short fast ascent brings you to the trail head that will take you along a mountainside pathway passing fig trees, figi-di-indian, and other native fruits. If it’s their time you can eat fresh warm fruit as you walk, but do pay attention as this trail is exposed in places to the river valley far below.
Continue ascending the trail until you reach the summit where you will descend the narrow forest pathway down to the river. The excitement begins! Upon arrival, hot and dirty, with only your bathing suit and runners on, plunge into the first of many cooling fresh mountain water pools. Ah, beautiful; fresh, cooling and silky from the minerals in the mountain water. Many more bathing opportunities await you as you make your way down the river towards the slide pool and the via ferrata.
This is a fantastic short trip which instantly lets one realize the beauty of Calabria from a participant’s point of view instead of just a visitor passing through. You will walk away wanting to discover more. We have many other offerings of a variety of different types of treks and difficulty levels for you to experience.
