About This Project
This torrent flows through the Nonay Valley; it is fed by high altitude snowfields and springheads which confer a crystalline quality to the water which is also slightly colder than that of other torrents. It flows into the Sermenza torrent near the village of Rima. Due to its integral nature it could be defined as a miniature Artogna. This excursion, in technical terms is defined as aquatic, as the majority of passages take place in water.
This activity is carried out during the whole week, from Monday to Sunday.
Compared to the other canyoning torrents which are relatively close to our basecamp, this torrent is slightly further afield. We travel up the stunning Val Sermenza or Val Piccola, another tributary valley to the Sesia River, passing the artificial lake at Rimasco, arriving at our departure point in 40/45 minutes. We walk for a further 20/25 minutes to reach the torrent entry point. The descent features a string of small slides, some leaps, two abseils near two waterfalls, a further series of leaps and slides to reach the end of the adventure at a pedestrian stone bridge. Unspoilt nature. Easy/medium level of difficulty. Suitable for novices and as a second excursion.
from end of May to July/August (activity start-up and closure may be influenced by levels of seasonal river depths).
This is a group activity, formed by a minimum of 2 people.
Approximately 5 to 5 and a half hours, including travel from and to the basecamp, kitting-up and descent techniques and river safety briefing. Excursion duration may vary on the basis of the number of participants in the group, their speed along the route and in the gorge, water levels and weather conditions.
