Easy rafting in Umbria, on the Nera river

Discover the adventure and pulse-racing adrenalin on a rafting trip suitable for everyone, children or adults, where excitement is guaranteed

Would you like to experience adrenalin-charged thrills and spills combined with fun and a group activity? If you like being in contact with nature and want to try a thrilling and compelling sport, rafting on the Nera river is what you are looking for!

Rafting is a fun and highly adrenalin-filled sport, but you needn’t worry if you’re not an expert because downstream rafting on the Nera River, in Umbria, is easy and suitable for everyone, the young, adults, the elderly and people with disabilities! In addition, the course will obviously take place in complete safety and under the guidance of professional instructors.

After receiving the equipment you must wear during the trip, you will have a short lesson during which the instructor will explain the safety rules, the correct use of the equipment and the behavioural guidelines to respect during the descent.

You can choose the route that extends for about 8 km, or the shorter stretch of about 4 km.

The adventure will begin aboard a special unsinkable raft together with the instructor and, together with other participants, you will begin to navigate the waters of the Nera river. You’ll feel the water splashing on your face and the raft sway with the motion of the river; the current will become more intense and will push the boat faster, making it proceed with greater speed. With a paddle in hand, you will challenge the current in the most inaccessible points and together with the other crew members govern the movement of the boat under the essential instructions of your expert instructor.

Thanks to a great team effort, you’ll avoid the obstacles along the way and have the privilege of being immersed in a wonderful landscape, rich in woods and multi-coloured vegetation; you’ll have the chance to admire a fascinating and constantly-changing panorama as you proceed down river.

Furthermore, if you want to make your adventure even more exciting, you’ll have the opportunity to dive into the regenerating waters of the Nera river from a natural springboard!

Prepare yourself for an exciting, adrenalin-fuelled experience. Let yourself be carried away by the sparkling excitement of rafting on the Nera river. It’s an exciting opportunity not to be missed!
