Umbra Forest Wheelchair Accessible Tours
The Umbra Forest wheelchair accessible tors, is a protected nature reserve located in the heart of the Gargano National Park.
Remnant of the ancient forest originating from the Gargano promontory, it extends over more than 10 thousand km² of land.
Despite the deforestation of the last three centuries, which have stripped the slopes of the Gargano, the majesty, the richness and the variety of the vegetation of the Umbra Forest have remained almost intact.
It is the perfect destination for nature lovers, but also for photography enthusiasts.
In winter it can happen to find snow, but from spring to autumn it is an excellent destination for rediscovering nature.
In summer it is also an excellent choice for cooling off on hot summer days.
In fact, it only takes a few minutes for the temperature to drop, the heat to disappear, imposing trees to welcome you making you forget the frenzy of the coast and the vegetation becomes so thick as to make the environment full of shaded areas.

Touring Umbra Forest
The forest boasts an ancient and rich vegetation, over 2000 plant species, which gave it the nickname of a botanical garden.
At the top there are trees such as hornbeam, maple and oak.
In the lower part, however, there are beech trees that go up to 270 meters above sea level.
The forest is in fact considered the lowest beech forest in Europe.
Because here the beech trees, thanks to a mix of climatic and environmental conditions, are located at much lower altitudes than the classic 800 meters.
The beech is the most important tree and the symbol of the Umbra Forest.
There are specimens 30 meters tall with straight trunk, lots of branches and a thick mane.
Much of the Umbra Forest area falls within the municipality of Vico del Gargano.
