I have always loved water, I consider it my element. I have been practising river sports since I was 14 years old. After discovering canoeing during a summer at the seaside, once back in Valtellina I enrolled in a canoe course and then the discovery of rafting led me to become the youngest FIRAFT Rafting Guide in Italy.

Full description

Experience the thrills of anadrenaline-filled activity in contact with nature: rafting on the Adda river will be an unforgettable experience!

On board the dinghy, paddle in hand, you will face the rapids of the river in a crescendo of fun and unique sensations. A rafting descent within everyone's reach, guided by experienced and professional instructors.

Get ready for an eventful river adventure between rushing waters and calmer stretches where you can contemplate the wonderful landscapes of Valtellina.

What we will do

We will meet at the rafting centre in Castione Andevenno, in the province of Sondrio. Having formed the group, got acquainted with the instructors and donned a wetsuit and water jacket, we will reach by shuttle to the point on the river from which we will embark on our adventure.

Before boarding the dinghy, we will have a briefing on the basic techniques and the rules of behaviour and safety to be observed during the activity, and then we will be ready to challenge the current of theAdda! We will sail along a stretch of river that alternates between rapids and currents and moments of 'breathing space' where the waters flow calmly.

During the descent we will slalom between natural obstacles, overcome rapids and test our skills with aquatic tests and games organised by the instructors, all in the name of fun and always remaining in total safety!

The activity lasts a total of 1½ hours. Back at the rafting centre, we can use the changing rooms and hot showers and then we will be free to continue our day in Valtellina as we prefer.
