Full description

TheTuscan Apennines is a place full of surprises, a place characterised by spectacular, varied and unspoilt nature. It is a perfect setting for lovers of outdoor sports activities, who love to thrill in contact with nature.

Choose packraft for your next adventure and come and explore the Serchio river trail in the province of Lucca. Guided by an expert instructor, you will be rocked by the waters in the calm stretches and tackle the rapids and strong currents with energy and determination.

The packraft is a kind of single-seater inflatable canoe, suitable for those seeking more exploratory autonomy than the traditional rafting dinghy. On the packraft you decide which direction to take, when to paddle and how, always following the guide that opens the route and indicates the water line.

What we will do

We will meet in front of Foro Boario di Lucca. After checking in, we will meet the guides, be provided with the necessary material, and reach the embarkation point by shuttle bus. Before embarking on the adventure, there will be an explanatory briefing on the basics and safety rules.

The route is about 5 km long and alternates between stretches of calm water and more steeply sloping points, where the currents get faster and the flow runs swiftly between rocks and pebble banks. These are the most adrenalin-pumping stretches, where we will have to paddle energetically following the main line of the water in order not to tip over.

Throughout the course we will be immersed in a beautiful river environment that will make this adventure unforgettable. At the end of the activity we will be taken back to the rafting base where we can change and relax in the designated areas.

Who it is aimed at

This activity is at an intermediate level. You do not necessarily need to have experience in kayaking, but you do need to be able to swim and have a fair amount of physical fitness. Children under the age of 12 will sail in the same canoe as their parent.
