The Alpi Apuane/Apuan Alps Regional Park located in Tuscany is extremely famous throughout the world for its beauty and stunning views. Amazing hikes, from touristic to more challenging ones, can be done here.

So do you want to join us on guided trekking and discover some really cool spots off-the-beaten-path and away from the crowds?

The hiking trails in the Alpi Apuane have a unique feature: you'll walk in a fantastic alpine environment and, at the same time, have the chance of admiring breathtaking views of the sea.

On most hikes, we'll be walking on typical mountain paths. Some are equipped with via ferrata, accessible only with appropriate equipment and with the support of a mountain guide.

We have been guiding in the Alpi Apuane for more than 30 years. And we know every corner of these beautiful mountains and will be glad to let you discover some of our favorite secret corners. 

There are several options we can go for. The choice will depend on your fitness level, what you wish to do and the time you have. These are some of the options:

  • Villages and paths in the mountains of Camaiore

  • Mount Gabberi (1140 m)

  • Hiking trails around Pruno, in front of Monte Forato

  • Mount Pratofiorito in the countryside of Lucca. Including the renowned Gagni di Lucca (thermal baths)

  • Mount Mattanna (1317m)

  • Mount Prana (1221m) above the Camaiore Valley

  • Hike and food/wine testing around the historical villas of Lucca

  • Mount Proncinto or/and Mount Forato t1223 m)

  • Mount Sumbra (1764 m)

  • Panial della Croce (1858 m)

  • Mount Pisanino (1946m)

It is also possible to combine several hikes and leave for two or more days. We can then stay at one of the mountain huts (rifugio) in the Apuane Alps.

If you are interested in hiking in the Alpi Apuane Regional Park during one or more days, please send us a request and let's organize the trip of your dreams together

The hikes can be combined with some canyoning or rock climbing, in the Apuan Alps / Tuscany or Cinque Terre.

Franco was a very professional guide. If you are not familiar with the trails in the Apuan Alps I highly recommend you hire this company - for ease of mind and safety. I am a former mountain guide in the United States.
