‘The Wolf’s Lair’ is a 400 km bike packing route that winds through medieval castles, alpine scenery and ancient Italian villages in the Apennines mountains. The Montanus duo (Georgio and Francesco) traced that route in 2016, after they felt the need to explore deeper into the Abruzzo region to learn more about their culture and origins.
