You will find the Eco Adventure Hill in the middle of the greenest nature area of the sunny island - on the north side of Sicily - directly in the front of the *Aeolian Islands*.
The most common point of view below our Adventure Hil is *Tindari*, a very famous sanctuary. Underneath in Locanda you will find one of the best saloons, called "Pane e Vino", with all the cheese and sausages of the region, delicious barbecue and good house wine as well as a weekly Sicilian live music.
From there a few hundred meters up you come to the small mountain village *Scala di Patti* with picturesque landscape - and just above there is our wild land, which you enter in the *Contrada Lupa* (the way of the wolves)...
How to arrive to our Adventure Base Camp:
By train: The next train station is by the coast in the little city PATTI, 10 kilometers from our land the station is called "PATTI (SAN PIERO PATTI)".
Because our Adventure Hill is 350 meters above sea level we recommend a donkey, a car or the bus for you & your luggage. Of course you can also walk - at least there is a really nice view to the Aeolien Islands. A taxi driver will ask for 20 euros (you can try to bargain), the bus is about 3 euros (but no bus in the evening). Perhaps also friends from us can pick you up - therefore let us now in advance when you will arrive. ...Our donkey Hercules can take your luggage and perhaps also you for free - it costs only time. ;-)
There is a bus from PATTI (SAN PIERO PATTI) train station directly to our land. The bus goes in the morning about 8 o clock and at midday about 12 o clock. During school term time also about 13:30. Its Sicily - so the times are changing from time to time. ;-) And sunday there is no bus. :-(
By car from Italy:
We recommend the Highway up to *Falcone*, then on the SS 113 up to Locanda (direction Tindari) left at the crossroad until *Scala di Patti*, then again left, always following the mountain road (about 700 meter) until you find on the left our garden with the sign "Eco Avventura".
Clicking on the map you will come virtually directly to us.
There are four international airports in Sicily:
Falcone-Borsellino Airport in Palermo,
Catania-Fontanarossa in Catania
Vincenzo Florio Airport 15 km south of Trapani
and the Airport at Comiso.
The Adventure Hill is between Palermo and Catania. Sometimes you can find special offers for the airport near Trapani, but it takes longer then by bus & train. (2 hours to Palermo.) and Comiso is on the other side (south) of Sicily.
Also from "REGGIO DI CALABRIA Aerop. Dello Stretto (REG)" came volunteers. It is the closest airport from mainland Italy, next to Sicily. - Then you have to take a ferrie from "Villa San Giovanni" to Messina and from there by train or bus to "Patti, San Piero Patti".
