Sports and adventure in Tuscany

Outdoor sports and activities

Vacation in contact with nature

Breathing clean air, lying on a flowering meadow or soaking in the deepest blue, watching the sun set from the peaks of the Apuan Alps, traversing the hills of Chianti. Tuscany is the setting for endless adventures to be experienced on foot, by bicycle, motorcycle, boat...

230 thousand hectares of nature reserves and a hiking network that crosses the entire region with trails of varying difficulty and many opportunities to combine culture and sport. You will encounter small medieval villages on your routes, where traditions are still all to be experienced and enjoyed.

Thousands of kilometers of bicycle routes, equipped with bike-friendly accommodations and services for bicycle travelers. Cycling in Tuscany means crossing a constantly changing landscape, in colors, vegetation, scents and views.

With its 630 kilometers of coastline, Tuscany offers a wide range of outdoor activities to enjoy among the waves. With a kayak you can pass among the rocks that emerge from the crystal-clear waters of the Elba Island and linger among the coves or explore inland lakes such as those in Valdarno and Mugello, while the more adventurous can try braving the current on an inflatable boat in the Tuscan temple of rafting: the Val di Lima.

The Tuscan mountains are a sports paradise all year round: in winter you can ski or snowshoe in the snowy woods, and when the weather is good you can discover the most beautiful trails with Nordic walking.

A network of winding roads also stretches in the midst of natural beauty, a real pleasure for those who love motorcycles, to travel up the coast, cross the region from the center to the sea, with wind and horizons as travel companions. And for those who love to travel in freedom without giving up the comfort of an equipped vehicle such as a camper, Tuscany offers dedicated accommodation facilities such as campgrounds, equipped areas, agri-camping and agri-rest areas.

Finally, those who want to relax amid incredible views can visit the many golf courses. The unspoiled beauty of the surrounding nature reserves and the proximity to some of the world's most prized art cities make the game an exciting experience.
