This is a great group activity, and contrary to common belief, Rafting is a sport suitable for novices too, as no special abilities are required.
The only pre-requisites are that you can swim and want the true whitewater experience – never has the term full-immersion been more apt!
The Valsesia Valley, probably the only great Italian valley to have kept its character intact, featuring unspoilt nature through which the crystalline waters of the Sesia River run, together with the Vara Valley, aptly named the “Organic Valley”, are the backdrop for this unforgettable experience.
Each raft carries a minimum of four to a maximum of seven occupants together with a F.I.Raft guide who accompanies each excursion giving directions during the run.
Prior to each run, the Guide carries out a dry briefing and wet briefing to illustrate the proper seating and paddling techniques and safety measures and instructions.
