Sunset and night walking and canoeing on Ridracoli Lake!
What we will do: On foot, from the Nature Trail that winds through the woods, we will climb up to the majestic dam and then reach the lake shore.

The canoe route on Lake Fiastra is also suitable for those who are at the first experience. The route is simple and linear, there are no rapids or currents to deal with. In addition, before entering the water, the guide will hold a mini-lesson on land where the basic techniques of safe canoeing will be explained.
Our canoes are particularly stable. Being “open”, the position you assume is that of sitting and with your legs free, you do not have to squeeze into a cockpit. In case of overturning, you will fall into the water and the only danger will be to find yourself wet! In order to avoid any kind of inconvenience, we invite participants to follow carefully all the indications of the guide, especially during the ascent and descent from the canoe.
