Raft description – The river we raft on is called Corno; it offers 7 km -2 hours- course, divided into two sections of the same length, totally safe and suitable even for unskilled people. The first quiet and enchanting section will lead us through the Biselli Gorge, where we can stop and either go for a swim or drink some water that flows out from a spring in the rock. The second section is interspersed with harmless, yet exciting rapids; the most courageous rafters can also dive into the sparkling water from a natural trampoline. We provided full gear, i.e. neoprene shoes and a wetsuit, a water jacket a life jacket, a helmet and, of course, a rubber dinghy, a paddle and a guide who will lead you all along the river. You only have to bring a pair of slippers, a bathing suit and a towel. During the cooler months, it is recommended to bring some socks, and a woollen or pile sweater. After the course is possible to take a shower.
