Full description

If you are looking for an adventure that combines spectacular scenery with a dash of adrenaline, our rafting trip down the Sesia River is perfect for you.

Enjoy the view as you glide in an inflatable raft over the calm waters of the Sesia in a stretch where the river narrows between spectacular gorges. This approximately 3.5 km route, surrounded by water-smoothed rocks and high waterfalls, is certainly one of the most scenic in the area.

Prepare to be enchanted by the wild beauty of the Sesia, a gem of the Alps that offers more than just rapids!

What we will do

The meeting is at the rafting centre in Mollia, in the province of Vercelli, where the instructor will be waiting for us.

We will start with an introductory briefing to learn the basic paddling techniques, how to position ourselves on the raft and how to coordinate with the other participants.

After the briefing, a short transfer of about 10 minutes will take us to the starting point on the Sesia, chosen according to river conditions. Once in the water, the real fun begins!

We will face exciting rapids in the Sesia Gorge, one of the most scenic stretches of the river. Along the 3.5 km route, we will immerse ourselves in a landscape of high waterfalls and rock walls reflected in calm waters. If we wish, we can also dive into the cool waters of the river at certain points.

Afterabout an hour and a half's descent, we will come out of the water and the transfer will take us back to our starting point in about 20 minutes. Between briefings, transfers and activities, the total duration of the experience is about three hours.
