Bear-watching among the stars

Bear-watching and astronomy weekend, with one overnight stay in a mountain hut

From Thursday 1 to Sunday 4 June 2017

Greek mythology tells the story of the nymph Callisto and of the constellations of Great Bear and Little Bear. This myth combines the two main ingredients of our initiative: bears and astronomy.

An overnight stay at Cicerana mountain hut will enrich the experience, as it is located in a valley far from any light pollution, and an ideal point of departure for animal observation.
