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.

Alessio was fantastic. He gave us so much information and really enlightened us about salt - it’s production, it’s health benefits and how important it is in our lives. He’s passionate about what he does, and adds a dash of humor often. The whole place was magical, and the sunset tour was extraordinary - we’ll look back on it with very fond memories.

The tour in the salt pans of Trapani was really interesting and wonderful. During the sunset the salt pans become a truly magical place. The tour is not only beautiful for the atmosphere and the photos, but also for Alessio, who is very good, very well prepared and passionate. We have learned so much about salt production. Highly recommended! Thank you!
