The Wolf’s Lair is a 400-kilometer bikepacking route that winds through medieval castles, alpine scenery, and ancient italian villages in the Apennines Mountains. The Montanus duo originally traced the route in 2016 after they felt the need to explore the Abruzzo region to learn more about their culture and origins. Giorgio went back to The Wolf’s Lair to film the experience.
We scouted The Wolf’s Lair in 2016, and the route has been enjoyed by bikepackers from all over the world since it was published here. We were amazed to find so many photos of people riding The Wolf’s Layer on social media, and we’ve been even more excited to see them with our own eyes.
Our idea was create a route that shows foreign bikepackers the beauty of Abruzzo, but during the trip we were surprised to discover so many amazing places we never heard of. From that experience, we learned to explore our own land more, and to fully appreciate the place where we live. Three years later, we revisited The Wolf’s Lair to try and capture some of the emotions that it provided.
