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