An evocative excursion in Cervia saltpan, to discover an uncontaminated and magical environment.

On board a very simple electric boat with wooden benches, we sail along Cervia saltpan surrounding canal to reach its heart.
Accompanied by an environmental guide we can walk along the banks, enveloped by the warm colours of the sunset.

Every season offers pleasant surprises.

Spring nature trail

Once we reach the heart of the Cervia Salt Pan, we can go down for a sunset walk.
Along the banks, the guides of the Visitor Centre illustrate the typical flora and plants of this saline environment.

And we, equipped with binoculars, can admire the landscape and the life moments of the animals living in this nature oasis.

In spring, it is easy to observe the birds hatching, courtship, care of the young and nest defence techniques.

March to end of June

Tuesday Thursday and Saturday

Productive route in summer and autumn

On the boat trip to the heart of the saltpan, we have to stoop to pass under a small brick bridge.

We will discover the productive saltpan, we will discover why Cervia salt is called sweet.
We will be able to observe the silt, the artemia salina which favours the pink colour of the flamingos and taste the Salicornia which grows on the banks.

Wrapped in the warm colours of the sunset, it will be an experience to remember.
