I am a canyoning guide and canyoning instructor, and have always been passionate about the mountains and all the outdoor activities that can be practised in them. Canyoning, however, manages to give me the most intense emotions and sensations.

Full description

Get ready to experience a whole day of nature and sport in the unspoilt and wild Valsesia, in Piedmont.

You will have the opportunity to ride a mountain bike along one of the most evocative itineraries in the entire valley, along the Sesia river, surrounded by the postcard-perfect scenery that these places can offer. At the end of the ride you will find an adrenalin-pumping and exciting adventure awaiting you: the canyoning descent of the Sorba torrent.

Dives, zip-lines, swimming in the current, abseiling and tobogganing will be the ingredients that will properly satiate the spirit, before filling the stomach too! The day will end in relaxation with a tasty barbecue of meat from our valley.

Get ready to discover all the reasons why you will never want to leave our valley again!

What we will do

The meeting point is set at 8:30 a.m. at the Scopetta bike rental in the province of Vercelli. Here we will park our vehicles and get on our mountain bikes to begin a 10 km itinerary that will take us to the starting point of the canyoning route.

We will cross the Valsesia cycle path as far as Piode, along a pleasant dirt track surrounded by greenery that runs alongside the Sesia. On arrival at the base, we will meet the canyoning guides with whom we will have a briefing on safety rules and progression techniques. Having handed over ourequipment and donned our wetsuits, we will reach thecanyon entrance with a 10-minute walk through the woods.

The Sorba is not a particularly challenging river, the ideal situation to experience on our skin the emotions and adrenaline that this sport can give to those who discover it. The water snake winds its way through a wonderful natural setting of crystal-clear pools and waterfalls where nature still reigns supreme.

We will have the opportunity to dive from rocky spurs, to let ourselves go on toboggans (natural slides), to abseil down the same wall as the waterfalls, to swim in the current and to descend with a zip line, the real highlight of the route!

The exit of the canyon is near the base, where we will find a barbecue of meat waiting for us. In the afternoon, we will be free to relax in the green area on the banks of the Sesia river, taking advantage of the football, tennis and basketball courts or venturing out on mountain bikes on the various trails in the surrounding area.

We will be back by 7.30 p.m. in Scopetta to return the bikes.
