SPORTIVE ECOTOUR: Ninfa-Cavata bike-canoe
Guided tour of the enchanting Ninfa’s Garden, a bicycle ride through Pontino’s farms, canoeing on the River Cavata to the natural springs, in a unique atmosphere!
Departure from Latina railway station (subway exit at Sermoneta side) to the Ninfa Garden on BICYCLE accompanied by our operator (own or rental bicycle). Guided visit to the Garden of Ninfa, stop for a lunch break and always in BICYCLE, up to the NATURAL REGIONAL MONUMENT“Monticchio Spring Area”. Arrival at CAVATA River springs and downhill to CANOA.
Cavata River was born at the base of the Lepini Mountains and crosses fascinating places that, for a real miracle, survived land deforestation and exploitation for agricultural purposes. You start with the canoe from the origins of the river under the magnificent landscape of the medieval village of Sermoneta.
Slowly falling down to the confluence of main branch of the river, fed by numerous springs in the Wood of Monticchio. This bifurcation, guarded by a very high age poplar, offers a wonderful view of Sermoneta and the ancient Norma perched on the Lepini Mountains.
Going up the river you will come to a small dam built with fallen trees, creating a pond overlooking the crystal clear water, where in summer you can stand for a wonderful regenerating cold bath. At this point you can still see some polished stones, probably parts of the old river port.
The trail includes a visit to the ruins of the Water Machine (Leonardo Da Vinci), where the masonry parts of the old pumping plant were made visible.
After the canoeing trip you will come back in BICYCLES at Latina railway station.
