Book this active tour to explore the area of the Metalliferous Hills in the surroundings of Larderello (municipality of Pomarance), and learn everything about the natural geothermal manifestations that characterize this area of Tuscany: a wild landscape, an environment often compared by renowned writers to a "hellish place", but nonetheless suggestive and full of charm.
We will go for a hike in the so called Devil's Valley to admire the power of nature and the beauty of these places. Afterwards, a lunch and a tasting of craft beer expect us at the Vapori di Birra geothermal brewery, where we will have the opportunity to taste typical products prepared using geothermal energy. Last but not least, we will discover the history of this land with a visit to the Larderello Geothermal Museum.
