Among the most important torrents present in Italy and in all Europe, we find the river Noce. It is surrounded by the most suggestive landscape and classified by the influential National Geographic as among the top 10 rivers in the world for white water rafting.
The torrent impetuosly runs to the valley with a navigable section long about 30 km. In 1993, we hosted the World Championship of canoe and kayak. Every year important competitions are conducted on the river along segments accessible to expert people, which present both complicated sections and easier ones. The easier parts are adapted also for who practise this exciting sport for the first time.
Considering the professionality of specialized guides, is possible to try and adventurous grade on special rafts in complete safety. The rafts are specifically built in order to resist to the difficulties of the river. The courses are 4 dedicated to adults, which are alternerd to various grades for children. The children's grades are dislocated long other tracts of the river.
All the necessary techniques and tricks are illustred with a theorical lesson before the departure. The crew is normally composed from a guide and 4 or 6 passengers, who participate actively to the raft's direction with paddles.
When the conditions of the river allow, more rafts go down one in close proximity to the other. It is a great emotion for people who enjoy facing the swirling water of Noce, but for who admire from the rafts the landscape immersed in a spectacular scenario too.
For this reason, rafting is a fascinating activity for everyone, because it does not request particular talents or particular equipment. In order to face the rapids of the river the necessary clothing consists in: bathing suit or short, trainers (or shoes of neoprene sub/surf), tight shirt with long sleeves or T-shirt, beach towel or bathrobe.
