Stroll to discover the only nesting site for flamingos in Sicily, in the Saline di Priolo Reserve, near Syracuse. From the huts you can spy on their life, the bright colors and the spectacular flights, photograph them and get blown away!

Bring your binoculars and camera and enjoy the Saline di Priolo. Watch from the many huts of the reserve hundreds of species of birds from all over Europe and Africa.

Get enchanted by the many plant species: the sand poppy, cornflower, and the sea lily of the beaches, myrtle, laurel-oak, and asparagus stinging of the Mediterranean.

The reserve is a territory that, in the past, has been defaced and violated by industrialization without rules. Today, thanks to the efforts of numerous volunteers, it is flourishing overbearing and returning to life in all its expressions. This is a clear example of when Man and Nature ally makes rebirth possible.

Depending on the season in which you will visit this beautiful paradise of flora and fauna, you will find different species of migratory birds: from the ferruginous duck in winter and the sultan chicken with the very rare long-billed curlew in spring to the remarkable presence of flamingos.

In this oasis rich in history, culture, and nature, you can enjoy the sight of hundreds of pink flamingos that nest every year populating this area, together with an abundant sedentary and migratory birdlife. At the end of the visit, you will receive a USB pen drive with the shots taken during the walk.

This visit will open your heart and mind with positive thoughts and hope.
