The “Selva del Buffardello” Adventure Park is located in the heart of Garfagnana, in the Appennino Tosco-Emiliano National Park area, near to the Orecchiella Park, overlooking Apuan Alps and a short distance from the Verrucole Castle.
In the park, visitors can take part in various activities, spending a day immersed in nature, in the name of sport, enjoyment and life outdoors. Acrobatics courses, excursions, trail running, e-mtb and learning activities, all organised and run by highly qualified instructors, are among some of our recommendations.
The Adventure Park offers lots of services to help you have a pleasant day, like a cafeteria, a picnic area with a barbecue, toilets, a nursery, a playground and plenty of green space for your free time.
There are ten courses in the park: three for small children and seven for teens and adults over 140cm.
The courses include a network of gangways and suspended bridges at different heights from the ground, balancing games and trapdoors, obstacles to clamber over, Tarzan jumps and zipwires up to 15 meters from the ground. To access the course children must be taller than one meter (100cm).
To guarantee complete safety, all users will be given tested equipment, including a helmet and a harness, and will participate in an informative briefing with a qualified instructor. Only after correctly answering some questions will access to the course be granted, whereupon you will be constantly monitored by the park’s operators.
Thanks to its highly qualified and expert staff, and to collaboration with external professionals, the “Selva Buffardello” Adventure Park offers all its guests the opportunity to take part in various outdoor sporting activities, like excursions and hiking, trail running, various courses with specialised guides; our guides offer numerous activities linked to nature: walks among the chestnut drying racks that operate in autumn, snowshoe excursions in the winter or beautiful walks to see the enchanting spring and summer flowers bloom.
For lovers of challenging expeditions, itineraries for expert excursionists that reach the highest peaks in the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines or Apuan Alps are also offered. Furthermore, it is possible to organise excursions and trips by bicycle, even for families with small children, thanks to the E-MTB.
The park is ideal for activities with schools of all kinds and levels. Through direct experiences, the children will come into contact with different ways to address subjects like history, geography, science and physical educations.
Excursions, guided visits, outdoor games and workshops are dedicated to topics ranging from the origins of the human race, who lived in our mountains in prehistoric times, to the shape of the region in which we live and how this evolved during the various centuries; everything is intended to make students aware of the environment that surrounds them.
Finally, we have “treetop” activities: an excellent way to introduces young children to mountain sports that not only stimulate the psychophysical capacity of each student but also their ability to collaborate in groups.
