The lake of Massaciuccoli

The lake of Massaciuccoli

.…being in a marsh with an old history, we can learn its traditions going along the lake channels on board the traditional “Barchini” (marshes boat) moved by ecological electrical motor, or have a try canoeing or kayaking – more adventurous indeed! For those who are fond of bird-watching it will be possible to visit the “Oasi Lipu” (the reserve of the Italian Association for the Protection of Birds) and to reach the hides through some gangways. The farmhouse of the Association hosts the Museum of Ecology of the Marsh, full of charm for adults but also for the young.

…even sailing!
In a windy day, sailing from the Nautical Base of CVSV situated near the channel of Barra, it will be possible to sight not only seagulls and cormorant, but also marsh harriers, herons, and other passerines that live in the lake of Massaciuccoli.

Recommended choice:
the excursions can be made in half a day; in summer we suggest to go on the lake in the evening before the sunset, or in the early morning by the first light of the sun; for any necessity or for the overnight stay you can rely on the guest rooms of the Oasi Lipu.
The most sport-loving people may leave Lucca (20 km from Lucca to the lake of Massaciuccoli). The rates for taking or renting a boat are not included and the price will be defined according to the number of requests it is usually about 7 euro per person for the boat, and as much for the renting.
