Description

A centre-based winter trip to walk and snowshoe along the trails of the Garfagnana Valley - Tuscany's hidden gem. Nestled between the 'marble mountains' of the Alpi Apuane and the rolling Apennines, this is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Depending on the level of the snowline (usually from 800 to 1200 metres above sea level) we can expect three or four of the walks to involve the use of snow shoes - suitable for beginners with equipment and instruction provided.
