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

Can't get enough of water sports and adventures in the middle of nature? Then try river SUP on the Adda and indulge in a river of thrills!

Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) consists of surfing on a board, standing up and moving forward thanks to a big paddle. Usually practised at the sea, but on the river the fun doubles thanks to the current and the more tortuous flow of the water.

Get ready for the most exhilarating and eventful river descent ever, because falls, splashing and laughter will be inevitable!

What we will do

The meeting point will be at the sports centre in Castione Andevenno, in the province of Sondrio. The instructor will welcome you, hand over yourfull equipment and, after dressing (wetsuit, water jacket, helmet and life jacket) you will set off by shuttle bus to the boarding point for the SUP descent on the Adda.

Before getting on the board, there will be a briefing on paddling techniques and rules of behaviour and safety. Then off to the river, the adventure begins!

Keeping your balance on the SUP board is not easy, especially if you are a beginner, so plan on falling into the water several times. Alternatively, you can tackle the descent, or the rougher spots, on your knees for more stability.

In any case, don't worry, theinstructor will always be by your side to ensure fun and safety and what aquatic adventure would be without some splashing and diving?

The activity lasts a total of about 2 hours. On your return to the sports centre, you will be able to use the showers and changing rooms.
