Lake Salso is a coastal wetland area in the Gulf of Manfredonia, which is part of the Gargano National Park, consisting of large artificial basins and tanks realized during the Tavolieres Land Reform reclamation.
The 1,040 hectares area is part of one of the most important wetlands in southern Italy: the system of Capitanata wetlands.
In the Oasis alternate reed beds and water bodies that receive, both in winter and in summer, many species of birds (242 species, of which at least 60 are nesting species), mammals and reptiles.
The Oasis has many trails of varying duration, from 30 minutes to 4 hours, and they can be traveled on foot, by bicycle or on horseback. The paths around the Oasis facilities are also passable by wheelchairs, while the viability of nature-trails is easy only if the ground is dry; some paths have a gravel ground.
In the Oasis there are also a Visitor Center, classrooms for schoolchildren and a picnic area. You can rent binoculars, bird watching guides and bicycles.
There are many projects and research aimed at the conservation of habitats and species. The entrance to the Oasis allow visitors access to the structures dedicated to these projects.
