The swing on Monte Forato

The swing on Monte Forato

The most exciting swing in the world can be found on Monte Forato, the peak of the Apuan Alps characterized by an enormous natural arch.

Its 30 meters of diameter and position jutting out on the Versilia coastline with hundreds of meters beneath make Monte Forato a spectacular skylight on the sea.


The swing is a unique experience periodically promoted by Garfagnana Guide.

The next appointment is for Sunday, July 2.

The trail up to the mountain, in the heart of the Parco delle Alpi Apuane natural park, passes through naturally wild environments, along ancient mule tracks once crossed by the infamous “outlaws of Garfagnana” and populated by an impressive biodiversity.


Meetup and return: rendezvous at Ostello Alpi Apuane, in Fornovolasco (LU) at 9am – Return scheduled for late afternoon, around 5pm.
