Particularly suitable for first-time skiers is Casone di Profecchia in Castiglione di Garfagnana, equipped with nice kiddie slopes but also with more daring ones. Here, options aren’t just limited to Alpine skiing: there are also routes for Nordic skiing that criss-crosses the woods so riders can enjoy the nature, sounds and characteristic scents of these mountains.

Careggine is a locality immersed amidst panoramas that touch the peaks of the Apuan Alps and Apennines. With beautiful ski trails among forests, mountains and meadows, skiers will feel truly in touch with nature for an experience they will not forget.

In the town of Formica, there are 2 ski runs totalling 700 meters and there are another 3 trails in Monte la Cima totalling 3 km, while in Vianova, a 750-meter kiddie slope is available.

After a day on the slopes, the old mountain villages, medieval towns where time seems to have stopped, are worth a visit, as is a taste of the delicious traditional cuisine of the Garfagnana area.
