Fly Fishing in Tuscany

Fly Fishing in Tuscany

Although most people come to Tuscany for the art and architecture, we are very pleased to offer a new itinerary which will introduce nature lovers to the remarkable beauty of the Tuscan countryside. Who could imagine that the Renaissance cities are just steps away from unspoiled rivers offering days of idyllic fly fishing opportunities?

This will be a fly fishing, hiking and cultural tour that takes us from the northwestern mountains to the southeastern hillsides of Tuscany. Experienced local Italian guides who have spent years exploring and fishing in the area will lead us to delicious culinary experiences in farm houses and family run vineyards during our travels. We’ll hike through pristine forests, fish wonderful trout in three historical rivers, savor delectable Tuscan meals with divine vino and absorb the beauty and culture of this legendary area.  For those of you traveling with companions that are not into fishing, we will offer alternative activities every day. Join us to experience Tuscany in a special way!
