Rafting, everything you need to know to practice it at its best

Rafting is a river sport that is practiced aboard a special boat, called a raft, which can carry a maximum of 8 people. Before setting off, there is always a short introductory briefing to learn how to properly use the paddles and the rest of the equipment.

After boarding, an experienced rafting guide gives directions to the rest of the crew to overcome the rapids and natural obstacles along the way. Rafting is an affordable activity for everyone. You just have to choose the route that suits your level, from the easiest for beginners to the most challenging for adrenaline junkies.

The best trips to tackle on the Sesia River

Among the various rafting trips in Piedmont, along the Sesia we find the scenic 10 km route from Balmuccia to Varallo, in the heart of Valsesia. Those who are novices and want to become familiar with this activity can choose the shorter route from Balmuccia to Vocca or from Vocca to Varallo. When there is not enough water to do the activity, we move to the Sesia Gorge, which is popular for its high granite walls and water features created by the current.

07 Jun 2020 | Mini-Raft Classic in Valsesia

First time in mini-raft

An extraordinary experience on the River Sesia in a mini-raft for two people. The place is magnificent and the day favoured us. Our instructor was helpful and very good... the real challenge for our first mini-raft outing was coordinating and communicating as well as doing the manoeuvres. Really an exciting afternoon

Fun and great professionalism

I should mention that I am a fairly fearful person of water activities. The guide explained in detail how to behave and made us feel completely safe. I recommend this fabulous experience on the Sesia to everyone.

Rafting with friends

First rafting experience, I must say very enjoyable! A morning immersed in nature and the cool waters of the river. On our way, we crossed rapids and stopped to swim and dive.

Fun, good organisation, friendliness

We all had a great time. Impeccable organisation, friendly guides, 2 hours of fun in complete safety, but with a bit of an adrenalin rush thanks mainly to the icy water!
