Full description

In the province of Vercelli, just 1.30 hours from Milan and Turin, you will have the opportunity to discover with us the most incredible canyoning torrents and waterfalls of Monte Rosa with a route that is perfect for those who are new to the sport and want to get closer to this fantastic discipline.

Get ready for a unique experience. We will abseil on ropes beside breathtaking waterfalls, dive into pools of crystal-clear green water, slide down toboggans (natural slides carved by water erosion). We will try ziplines and zip-lines, we will walk in the creek bed in a wonderful natural setting.

Canyoning means, in addition to the adrenaline and fun component, having the opportunity to discover hidden natural treasures, which could not be visited in any other way.

You will be accompanied by a certified and highly trained guide, who will teach you the basic techniques of progression in the canyon, such as the use of a descender to abseil yourself down a rope, ensuring the greatest possible safety.

We will take care of everything, organisation and equipment, you just have to enjoy the experience!

What we will do

The meeting point will be at our base in Piode(Vercelli), located just a few metres from the exit of the stream that you will be travelling along. You will be equipped with a neoprene wetsuit that will serve as thermal insulation, a helmet and a harness with attached descender.

After a full briefing, during which the activity will be described and explained, we will do a dry run on how to abseil using a descender. A pleasant walk of about 10 minutes will take us to the entrance of the stream.

The Sorba is an aquatic canyoning activity characterised by natural slides, swimming in the current and a couple of rope abseils, leading up to the highlight of the course: a 35-metre zipline over a beautiful and evocative pool. All you have to do is let yourself go until the impact with the water stops your run.

Numerous dives will be encountered along the way, up to 10 metres high but never compulsory.

The exit is practically at the height of our base, a site surrounded by greenery in front of the Sesia river. We have changing rooms with hot showers, a bar, a green relaxation area with several grills, a children's play area, a football pitch and a tennis court available for our guests.
