Rafting is a fun and exciting activity: riding an unsinkable raft – the raft – you launch yourself on the waters of streams and rivers pushed by the currents, dodging the obstacles that are found along the way. It is a group sport, and as such requires team work: the participants must act according to the conditions and indications that the team leaders (usually expert guides) give. An adrenaline experience that offers great satisfaction to those who try it, but also a way to discover and visit places inaccessible by other means. The banks of the rivers in Umbria seem to be made especially for rafting: they are interspersed with rock walls, woods and large meadows. In a few minutes you can go from one type of landscape to a completely different one, an aspect that other sports can not boast!
Rafting is an exciting activity for everyone; does not require special courses or skills to immediately tackle the rapids of the river with all possible safety precautions. The rafting inflatable boats are built specifically to withstand the stresses of the river, reinforced and divided into independent air chambers. The crews are normally composed of 6 (min 2 max 7) “passengers” and the guide.
Once you get to Rafting Umbria in Serravalle di Norcia, the practice is very simple:
you wear the wetsuits, the helmets of protection, you take the paddle and after a short course on how to maneuver the boat starts. The embarkation for the rafting descent is adjacent to the center and it is not necessary to move by bus unlike other centers in the area.
Before embarking on the raft for the descent our guides describe to the group, in a brief lesson of a few minutes, all the instructions and the main techniques necessary for the descent.
Climb then on the raft and descend along the river in rafting. In each dinghy (7 people maximum) there is a rafting guide that gives commands to the group, which through the paddles will try to steer the boat among the rapids.
During the descent, where the river allows it, you can dive.
Finally we return to the base of the Rafting Center.
During the descent our guides can make photos and videos, which will be stored on a CD or sent by email.
