Connect with authentic wilderness experiences that thrust you into sun-drenched seascapes viewed from a fisherman’s boat as you visit working fishing grounds, unexpected nature reserves filled with the secret lives of migrating birds, and misty hills wearing their pearly cloaks as you adventure on foot into the deepening twilight.  Investigate the immense wealth of Tuscany’s widely varied natural elements and begin an intimate relationship with the wilderness of this region and the landscape that is the foundation of the true Tuscan soul...

The impact of Tuscany’s wild natural landscape will take you by surprise whether you choose to experience it from horseback or boat deck, or on foot by day or by night.  You see a side of Tuscany that is often missed by the casual visitor: the rustic, rural, wilderness quality of the land outside the well known cities. Immerse yourself in the lush hills and woods as you sway in the saddle and hear tales of old time “cowboys” who herded their livestock through this region, guarding against marauders and ensuring the quality of Tuscan beef and lamb. Take to the waves with a lifelong fisherman, soak up the sunlight glittering on the sea spray as crystal blue waves break on the Tyrrhenian shore  and investigate the threats to the fragile Tuscan seacoast and its marine wildlife. Spy on rare species of migrating birds and other wetland creatures as you hit the trails of Italy’s largest nature reserve, binoculars in hand, with a renowned ornithologist to show you the way. Dare to eat directly from Mother Nature’s bounty as you learn to forage with an expert in wild herbs and plants and cook up a feast from your natural treasures. Feel your senses come alive as you are challenged by the darkness of a night trek through Tuscany’s rolling hills.  Enjoy the deep satisfaction that comes from hours spent outdoors in the fresh air of the Tuscan countryside and become a part of the true Tuscan spirit that has maintained an intimate connection with nature over thousands of years.
