Lazio and Abruzzo: in the footsteps of the brigands
A seven-day journey between Lazio and Abruzzo, in the footsteps of the bandits of the Band of Cartore. A journey on foot, from village to village among the woods and mountains of Marsica and Cicolano. Easy stages at medium altitudes make this trek an excellent opportunity to spend a week of true relaxation “on the go”.
My name is Paolo Borra and I am enthusiastic about life in the open air. To transmit this passion, I became an Environmental Hiking Guide and for years I have been proposing excursions to those who choose to be guided by me in nature. My base is the Val d ‘Ossola, between the Maggiore and Orta lakes and the Himalayan walls of Monte Rosa. In this area, despite coming from a plain city, I have become more and more rooted, so much so that it is now my second home. I have a particular fondness for large crossings, for ring excursions, for tents and bivouacs in the open air. I like to travel and discover new territories on foot. These are some of the treks I usually do: Tour Mont Blanc, Tour Monte Rosa, Tour del Monviso, Valgrande, Via del Sale, Via degli Dei, Traversata dell’Elba, Sardinian Supramonte, Cammino dei Briganti, Amalfi Coast, Vercors, GR20 Corsica . For eight years I have been teaching training courses for Hiking Guides in the Piedmont Region and I am a Guide to the Protected Areas of Ossola. Safety is a fundamental principle for me and I try to respect it during all the excursions I organize. This does not mean that a pinch of adventure can be part of our days outdoors. I think it is part of life and that it serves to get to know each other better. I have experiences in trekking and mountaineering expeditions, all organized and conducted independently in: Patagonia, Alaska, Canada, Norway, Iceland, Greenland and Mongolia.

The benefits of trekking In a historical period that sees cities enrich themselves with populations and become the absolute center of social, economic, and productive interests, involving ourselves in a daily routine in the name of urban style life, we are increasingly aware of the need to find ourselves and do so “outside”. In fact, […]
