Val di Lima in Mountain Bike

Over these ten days, we’ll bike together through the hills around

Val di Lima Valley, surrounded by an ocean of olive trees, vineyards, oak and cypress groves and wild forests. We’ll introduce you to the most beautiful and evocative hamlets in the area and we will lead you through the Orrido di Botri national park.

We will be treated to fantastic local food and wine at our favourite trattorias and at the finest restaurants in Lucca. Our local bi-lingual expert crew will guide you along routes where we will be taken aback at some of the most hidden artistic treasures in the area. You will have all the time you need to relax and recharge with a professional post-ride massage.
