Full description
Nature and tradition come together on this 2-hour guided tour of the Trapani salt flats. Join a local guide who will explain the tradition of salt-making while exploring a family-owned salt pan. Enter the salt museum inside a renovated old mill to see the tools and even try some samples of flavored salt. Visit 3 different salt plans while keeping an eye out for flocks of flamingos. These migratory birds change color over time and have been known to make the flats their temporary home. At the end of the day, walk along the edge of the flats and admire the reflection of the afternoon sun in the salt pools. The tour ends with a return transfer to the meeting point.

Our guide, Alessio, was very good: he managed to tell us a lot of interesting things, adding funny jokes, which made everything very pleasant. We learned new things and we recommend the tour to both adults and children. Thanks again Alessio!
