Kayaking in Tuscany 

An Intro to Kayaking  in Tuscany

The Garfagana being a lush area with regular rain falls has enabled some valleys to be dammed to create electricity from this natural source. The through these Hydro Electric areas, we have now a number of lakes,  stunning in their own right with amazing backdrops of the Alpi Apuane and villages refelcted in their waters, and little inlets and places to explore, let alone the abundance of wildlife on their shore.  We offer you the chance to explore these lakes by and views that not many get of the lakes, by hiring a kayak from us.  One can undertake a tour with a guide if they wish, or hire out a canoe. We can transport you to the lakes, provide you a boat and some hours of kayak fun, or pick up the boat yourself and go as you please !!. All boats have life jackets and are very safe and stable

Garfagnana Kayaking


Our Kayaks are based on Pontecosi lake where they are open for hire all year round. Here Pontecosi lake has an abundance of blue heron plus a huge more number of birds. The area has now been made a UNSECO site of natural interest. 

Other Lakes to Kayak are Valgli Lake, where you have any amazing backdrop to kayak with the medieval village of Vagli Sotto & the high peaks of the Alpi Apuane behind, with the peaks of Monte Tambura & Sumbra relected in the waters... This lake can be kayaked as part of organised group.

Then there is Lake Gramolazzo, still further north in the garfagnana, another great lake, but with more open water and more open views this lake has a different feel to that of Vagli. Here one is near Gorfigliano & the rd to Minucciano leading to a great tekking area of the Orto di Donna, and the highest Peak of the Alpi Apuane Monte Pisanino.

Groups >

Organised Kayak tours can be arranged for groups of 6 and up. , but otherwise no guided tours are available.

 We offer kayaking at Pontecosi lake, where we keep some kayaks. There you have the freedom to explore alone, & to do as much kayaking as you would like for a single cost. If one would like to go to Lake Gramolazzo or Vagli contact us for pricing options.
