The Wolf’s Lair 2.0: A 400 km Bike Packing Adventure in Italy

‘The Wolf’s Lair’ is a 400 km bikepacking route that winds through medieval castles, alpine scenarios and ancient italian villages in the Apennines mountains. The Montanus duo traced that route in 2016, after they felt the need to explore deeper Abruzzo region to learn more about their culture and origins. Giorgio and Francesco are back on The Wolf’s Lair to film the experience and show the hidden beauties that fascinated them three years before.
