In search of adventure in the wild Val di Lima

A charming valley where you can challenge yourself in a canoe, kayak, on foot, by bike or quad

The Val di Lima is located in the Municipality of Bagni di Lucca and develops along the route of the Lima torrent. The Lima is the largest tributary of the Serchio, tracing an intrepid path along the entire valley where you can experience unforgettable adventures. It's the perfect place to spend a summer full of adrenaline, where you'll never be bored. The valley is surrounded by charming woods, a breathtaking canyon and the spectacular stream where you can undertake many water activities.

Starting from exactly that, rafting is one of the best sports to experience the river. For the more adventurous, Lima is perfect given its medium difficulty descent through the area of ​​Fabbriche di Casabasciana and Ponte a Diana. You can rent a kayak throughout the whole season, head down the river and reach the well-known Ponte del Diavolo in Borgo a Mozzano. Another very frequent sport in the valley is water trekking where you can swim, walk and climb between the straits of cocciglia and beyond.

There are plenty of options for sport even out of the water. Take part in the colourful challenge of woodland paintball, walk among the countless paths that weave through the unpolluted woods for some healthy trekking, then take a trip on a mountain bike or, on that more recent novelty, an e-bike. For lovers of off road and motorcycle tourism, there are excursions by Quad, Vespa, Enduro and 4 x 4 through an enviable network of exciting roads and trails. Trips start from Bagni di Lucca and range throughout the Serchio Valley taking in natural beauty, monuments and medieval villages and then reach the Garfagnana with its fortresses, imposing mountains and unique panoramas.

Don't miss a visit to the canyon in the heart of the valley with its spectacular array of colors, locals even call it the fairy cave. Here, you can also undertake sports and much more.
Daring thrill seekers can experience the unique adrenaline rush of paragliding by climbing Mount Pratofiorito and then launching themselves into the air, letting themselves be carried away by the currents of altitude.

In Val di Lima, you will find experiences to suit all tastes and enjoy an adventure holiday immersed in wild nature.
