The Lima torrent, immersed in the magic wood

A real pearl of the Tuscan Apennines, a few kilometers from Lucca: the torrent Lima, with its crystal clear water, flows through a striking landscape, where, according to some popular legends, live witches and goblins, angels and dragons.

Technical description:
Torrent characterized by rapids and passages of medium difficulty, but never dangerous.
It’s suitable for canoeing beginners and for those who want to experience the thrill of rafting in a location not too demanding.

Technical tips:
Technical clothing (neoprene or waterproof wetsuit), helmet, life jacket.
Thanks to the mild climate of the area, this itinerary is recommended almost all year round. Stunning autumn landscapes, from October to November.
During summer, from June to September, the classic stretch of the river is not navigable. But you can make descents of soft rafting and water hiking to admire the Strette di Cocciglia, just above the town of Scesta.
