The Umbra Forest, part of the Gargano National Park, is the ideal place for those who want to get lost in the green of a unique landscape, crossing it with the attention it deserves but without missing the services to enjoy it fully. The area of the Umbra Forest covers more than 10,000 hectares and has an altimetrical variation that goes from 272 to 827 meters above sea level. Rich of species of trees and flowers, also its fauna is particularly rich and visitors will be able to meet the roe deer (Capreolus italicus), Apennine subspecies, the Dalmatian woodpecker (Dendrocopos leucotos lilfordi), the wild cat (Felis silvestris), the short-toed eagle (Circaetus gallicus) and the eagle owl (Bubo bubo). For some, the name "Umbra" would derive from ancient populations of Umbrians who lived anciently the forest; for others, the name would derive simply from the thick vegetative mantle that creates many zones of shade. The beech tree is the most important and representative of the Umbra forest. It to its inside reaches the 30 m. of height with a straight and ramoso trunk and a chioma much thick one and compact, giving life to of the extended fustaie from the majestic aspect.
