Full description

Aquiet experience in a peaceful natural setting. This is the case with our soft rafting in Rieti!

An activity suitable for the whole family, thanks to the large rubber dinghies that are accessible even to small children. And what about the scenery: the Velino is one of the cleanest rivers in Italy; yes, the very river that crosses Umbria and gives rise to the famous Marmore Falls!

Spend 3 hours together with your nearest and dearest, discovering the historic centre of Rieti from a new (unique) perspective.

What we will do

I will be waiting for you at the selected time at the meeting point in Rieti (RI). I am your certified guide, who will accompany you on this rafting experience! Upon your arrival, I will give you the necessaryequipment to proceed with the outfit. We will then board a shuttle, which will take us to the embarkation point in about 15 minutes.

Once there, where our aquatic adventure will begin, I will hold a briefing to provide you with all the information you need to enjoy the activity without any worries. It will then be time to enter the water: we will embark on a large inflatable boat, which is extremely stable and therefore suitable for all the members of the family.

The route includes a calm first section, which will allow you to become familiar with the equipment and apply the controls correctly. We will paddle in the beautiful natural setting of the Velino river, one of the cleanest in Italy, in which the surrounding vegetation is reflected.

We will then reach the Cavallotti bridge, where we will face a small rapids through which we will enter the city centre. It is here that the current slows down, carrying us slowly through the monuments of Rieti's historic centre (in the company of a few ducks). On request, it will be possible to stop for a swim in these calm waters.

And after paddling for 5 km, we will finally return to the meeting point with a 5-minute shuttle transfer. We will therefore have spent 1½ hours on the dinghy, for a total experience of 3 hours.

The experience is suitable for everyone from 7 years of age; children from 7 to 9 years of age participate free of charge.

It is not necessary to know how to swim to participate in this activity.
