The 2024 hikes to discover Oasi Dynamo: an unspoiled natural corner in Tuscany

6 March 2024

We open a new season full of outdoor adventures exploring the Oasi Dynamo Nature Reserve in the heart of the Pistoia Apennines. From March to October 2024, we have prepared for you a calendar of hikes that promise to bring you closer than ever to nature through many activities suitable just for everyone.

We begin the season with “The Care of Instants,” a literary walk scheduled for March 24, which will see us walking together with poet and environmental guide Emiliano Cribari. Words from his latest book The Care of the Rain, interspersed with moments of insight with one of our environmental guides, will accompany us on this walk to immerse us in nature at a slow pace, in the company of silence and listening, to others, to self.

The Easter Monday holiday, April 1, we will celebrate it with a light trek among the reserve’s trails and a classic picnic, where we can relax and enjoy the arrival of spring in the oasis.

On April 21, the eve of Earth Day, we are planning “Earth day: the day of the earth,” a special event dedicated to raising awareness of environmental issues, to reflect together and remind ourselves how important every daily gesture is for the future of our ecosystems.

On May 12 we will celebrate Mother’s Day with a special hike designed for the whole family, where mothers will be our guests and participate for free.

There will also be many opportunities to discover animal species more closely: on June 2 we will go on a trek discovering all the secrets of the wolf, one of the most elusive and fascinating species in the oasis, while on July 21 we will learn to recognize animal tracks and footprints on the trails together with our guides. Finally, on September 28, “Looking for the deer: hike to the roaring” returns, the classic night walk, which will allow us to listen to their powerful call, typical of the courtship period.

New this season will be “Grandma’s remedies – wild plants and their uses”: on Sunday, May 5, we will go on a wild herb hunt, learning and recognizing plants such as elderberry, dandelion and plantain and discovering their healing and nutritional virtues, just as our grandmothers did.

For shooting star lovers, “Star Trekking” the nighttime walk on Aug. 3 to see a starry sky as you’ve never seen it, far from the light pollution of our cities, returns again this year. For those who are looking for wellness, on the other hand, we have organized two days of “Yoga in Oasis,” May 26 and June 16, to do your practice at high altitude with breathtaking views. And for photographers, both amateur and professional, don’t miss the nature photography workshop with Gianluca Gavazzi on September 22.

A unique experience will also be “On the Trail Between History and Nature,” on the weekend of August 10 and 11, a journey that combines the beauty of the natural environment with the discovery of local traditions and history.

We will conclude our hiking season with “Trekking Among the Chestnut Trees” on Oct. 13, where you can enjoy the view of autumn-colored woods and rediscover the charm of nature preparing for winter.

Each hike is an opportunity to learn, share and above all enjoy the extraordinary beauty that surrounds us, discovering many secrets about the flora and fauna thanks to our environmental guides. Don’t miss the opportunity to connect with nature and yourself in one of the most pristine and amazing corners of the Pistoia Apennines.

Reservations are required to participate; under each date in the calendar you will find all the details to participate. If you would like more information please write to us at info@oasidynamo.org.
