The heart of Apuan Alps in E-MTB
This hike of about 57 km and 1500 meters in altitude, will offer you the opportunity to savor the true essence of this valley, between the mountains of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines and the majestic Apuan Alps. Ancient villages, landscapes, lakes and mountains through a genuine Tuscany yet to be discovered.
After picking up the MTB you’ll have a short briefing with the guide on how to best use it, we’ll be ready to start our exciting day through the Garfagnana landscapes.
Off roads, ancient mule tracks, paths and short stretches of roadways will allow us to make a ring route of about 57 km between ancient villages, landscapes, lakes and mountains. The route also includes lunch in a typical restaurant in the ancient village of Roggio. Here, during the lunch break, we will also be able to recharge our electric MTB to be able to fully use the powerful engine for the rest of the itinerary.
We will reach the highest point of the day arriving at the ancient pasture of Campocatino, nestled between the mighty peaks of the Apuan Alps. From above we will be able to admire Lake of Vagli, in whose waters the ancient village is located. We will go down to the lake to visit the village of Vagli di Sotto and then we will cross the lake on its mighty dam. Still endless emotions, in fact, we will be crossing the Serchio river valley on the highest brick railway bridge in Europe. Up and down to the characteristic lake of Pontecosi and soon to the center of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana to conclude this fantastic loop.
