Full description

Discover the fascination of the underground world with aspeleological excursion in the caves that make up"La Tana che urla", a large karstic cavity in the heart of the Apuan Alps.

You will immerse yourself in distant geological eras, amidst waterfalls and underground streams, and you will be impressed by the bizarre shapes of the stalactites and stalagmites, which create a scenario of great visual impact.

The expert guide who will accompany you on this adventure will reveal all the secrets of the limestone formations and you will experience the fascinating sensation of being in complete darkness and silence. It will be an incredible experience for the most curious and for those who love to explore the unknown!

What we will do

We will meet at the free car park in Fornovolasco, in the province of Lucca. There we will meet the guide who will provide us with the wetsuit and the rest of theequipment, and all together we will walk to the cave entrance. After a briefing on how to move inside, we will turn on our headlamps and enter the cavity.

We will follow the course of an underground stream, cross waterfalls and finally find ourselves in a pond for a 'mineral' bath. We will go as far as the passage is accessible, passing through bottlenecks and points where we will feel very close to the centre of the earth. Then we will visit the 'room of silence', a place where, if we all keep quiet, we will be able to hear a sound similar to a human scream, which gives the cave its name.

In the final section we will use ropes to descend down an underground waterfall and return to the access point towards the car park. The cave excursion lasts between three and four hours and is suitable for anyone who does not feel uncomfortable in enclosed spaces.
