Full description

Treat yourself to a day of sport, fun and nature less than 80 km from Rome. Get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and immerse yourself in the green heart of Italy, where wild nature offers a thousand opportunities to amaze us with its evocative scenery.

With this canyoning descent to the Fosso della Mola , you will venture into a gorge to cross between slides carved into the rock, abseiling and diving from walls up to 12 metres high into the pure waters of the Salto river, in the province of Rieti.

If you are among the few who still do not know canyoning, you should know that it is an exploratory practice of river areas. It consists of traversing the course of mountain torrents, overcoming all the roughness of the pristine environment and the gorges carved by the incessant flow of water. You'll skirt waterfalls, rappel down rock faces or dive from spurs into the crystal-clear pools created by the river in some places.

This is fun without limits and within everyone's reach, an activity carried out in the company of an experienced guide and also suitable for those with no previous experience. You can't miss it!

What we will do

We will meet at 10 a.m. in Casette, in the province of Rieti. We will meet the guide and, after handing over ourequipment and getting dressed, we will set off towards Balzi di Grotti, an area famous for its many crags full of climbing routes.

After about 40 minutes of walking in the valley of the Salto river, a place dominated by nature and its lush greenery, we will arrive at Fosso della Mola, which owes its name to the remains of an old mill that can be seen right at the start of the route. Before starting the canyoning route proper, we will have a briefing on progression techniques and safety rules. And then, off to adventure!

From the very first metres, stretches with shallow water will alternate with deep pools, where it is necessary to dive up to our necks (if the water flow is substantial). As we progress, we will notice that nature becomes thicker and wilder and the gorge narrows, becoming more and more vertical.

There the most sensational section will begin, with slides, dives and waterfalls. The highest one we encounter will be 12 metres high and will test us with a truly spectacular abseil! Then, still surrounded by waterfalls and rivulets of water, we will continue the route in an environment that is, to say the least, evocative, until an amusing passage through a cave and a swim across a crystal-clear pool.

The activity lasts a total of four hours, but the time taken to complete the route may vary depending on the flow of water and the number of participants. Upon exiting the canyon, it will take only 5 minutes to walk back to our cars, where we will return our equipment, share the most exciting moments of the experience and say goodbye until the next adventure!

Who it is aimed at

This canyoning excursion is of medium level, but perfectly accessible even to novices. All persons able to swim, from 12 to 65 years of age, can participate.

Other information

Attention. You must arrive at the meeting place at least 15 minutes before the start time of the activity.

The activity takes place on weekends and public holidays from April to October and is confirmed when there are at least 4 participants. Pre-constituted groups of at least 4 people can book the activity on any date, provided that environmental conditions are favourable. If you are alone or do not reach the minimum number of participants, write to us to find out which dates have already been confirmed.

Important: This activity is strongly influenced by the environmental conditions of the season. The water flow is very variable and both the duration of the route and the possibility of carrying it out depend on it. The guide will give you more information on this (if you have any other doubts, please contact us in chat!).

There are no showers or changing rooms at the end of the activity.

Apart from the equipment required for the activity, you cannot carry any items or bags/backpacks, as they would get wet during the canyoning trip. It is recommended to have a nutritious but light breakfast at least one hour before the activity.
