Parco Avventura Saltapicchio
The Parco Avventura Saltapicchio is located in the Parco Regionale dei Laghi di Suviana e Brasimone on the eastern side of Lake Suviana. The park offers a peaceful environment, green spaces and clean air far from the city.
This amusement park has been created in harmony with nature; here you can enjoy an exciting experience in the habitat of fallow deer, roe deer, deer and...wolves!
There are two Practice trails, the Baby Yellow and Baby Light Blue trails for children between 100 and 140 cm tall, and three trails of different levels for adults and youngsters taller than 140 cm: Green, Yellow and Red. For children aged between 1 and 4 that are less than 1 m tall there is a special area where they can play with their parents.
SPORT, NATURE and RELAXATION AT LAKE SUVIANA
Near the Parco Avventura Saltapicchio you can sunbathe or swim in the lake, hire a pedalo or do water sports. Boats are available for hire and sailing courses are organised by the Centro Velico Querceti; canoe lovers can hire one at the Oasi Lucy at the “Spiaggetta” (little beach) or bring their own. If you are feeling adventurous, try the thrilling experience of rafting or hydrospeed down the Limentra River!
The Parco Avventura Saltapicchio is also a starting point for walks and hikes (more than 30 km of trekking trails) and mountain bike routes.
