RAFTING: AN “ADVENTURE” DAY FOR EVERYONE!!!
THE NOCE RIVER: RAFTING ROUTE AMONG THE WORLD “TOP TEN”
Rafting means cutting through the waters of the Noce River by use of special rubber boats called Rafts. An expert guide gives indications to the team who play an active part in the descent. Rafting is an ideal sport for nature-lovers looking for strong emotions and spectacular landscapes. An expert guide gives orders regarding maneuvers, but the team made up of four to six beginners, are the real protagonists during the descent in the rubber boat along the river. RAFTING: emotion, amusement and satisfaction for having “challenged” and discovered the wild surroundings of the river
Easy to experiment daily, on weekends or with weekly courses organized by the X Raft Centre. All participants in the boats are active protagonists who use paddles, and are guided with precise “orders” and indications given by the Guide. Usually for major safety, more boats leave close together.
During the “theory lesson” before the departure, in order to guarantee a safe descent, simple management techniques and necessary precautionary tricks are explained. There is no need to have a minimum number for a group and therefore it is also possible to book individually. The organization will eventually provide for completing a team with other participants (min 4, max 7 participants plus the Guide for each raft).
THE NOCE RIVER
Descents from May to September when most water is flowing along the Noce River. Descents organized by X Raft allow neophytes a gradual and safe introduction to this activity which is so adventurous. The first part of all the routes is simple and panoramic (ideal testbed for the new team) and then gradually becomes always more exciting, with turbulent rapids and strict maneuvers among the rocks in the Noce River.
