The most beautiful treks in the Apuan Alps

Itineraries and walks not to be missed in inland Versilia

The question is not why we should give value to the hinterland of the Versilia region, but why we shouldn’t do it: wonderful scenarios, outdoor fitness, a pleasant alternative to the beach, an integrating possibility. These are some of the many reasons why trekking and the other activities related to mountains are not just alternatives to the sea, but some of the most convincing aspects behind the choice of spending a vacation in this part of the Tyrrhenian coast.

Thanks to the initiative Viareggio And Torre del Lago, A Sea Of Things To Do, all information regarding sport and nature are spread and made known through the web page sit under a beach umbrella you can plan a trip for the next day.

And there is even more to say about the possibilities you will have in Versilia, especially if you love mountain activities or wish to try them.
For those who want to approach this reality, they would better start with trekking, which does not require a particularly good physical and athletic preparation, but just the wish to breathe some fresh air and forget the laziness connected to the beach umbrella/chair combination.

On, you will find many itineraries to follow accompanied by expert guide who will help you discover the Apuan Alps, in tours of different difficulty levels and with the possibility of staying out a couple of daysbooking a selected and cozy ski chalet.

Instead, for those we love, beside trekking, the adrenalin rush provided by rock climbing or raftingmountain-biking or the breathtaking view glimpsed from a railroad, the ideal destination is Camaiore: Prorock is an office offering alpine guide and counseling service related to mountain activities: inaugurated this Spring, it organizes excursion activities in different sports, providing the safety equipment needed to participate to them (

And now we finally say: enjoy your vacation in Versilia! Remembering that the mountain is really beautiful also during Winter.
