Full description

Discover the beauty of the Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National Park and enjoy a leisurely kayak excursion on the Tirino, one of the cleanest and most unspoilt rivers in Italy.

Paddle in the crystal-clear waters, surrounded by lush nature that provides a natural habitat for many animal and plant species, and have fun doing sport while respecting the environment.

One of our qualified canoe/kayak guides will take you to discover a fantastic place, where you can breathe in the pure air of the Tirino Valley and theAbruzzo Apennines.

What we will do

We will meet at Capodacqua in Capestrano, in the province of L'Aquila, and together with our guide we will move to San Martino, where the embarkation point on the River Tirino is located.

We will sail aboard single sit-on-top kayaks, which are easily manoeuvrable even by those with little experience. Before setting off, however, we will have a briefing on paddling techniques and safety rules.

We will paddle a 4 km route, which can be shortened or lengthened depending on the level of the participants. The tour will be conducted in the name of relaxation and discovering nature, with the possibility of swimming - if it is not too cold - and sampling a local edible plant: the aquatic celery.

The activity will last about 1 hour and 45 minutes in total and will end with a return to the starting point.

Who it is aimed at

This activity is at an easy level and is intended for people aged 14 to 65 in good health, under 100 kg and with a minimum of paddle experience.
