World class whitewater combine with world class food and wine to make this a destination that will leave you wanting more!
We'll cover techniques for paddling steep terrain with style in a progressive package that will allow you to push yourself gradually as your skill and confidence grows. As with all our courses, you'll receive cutting edge coaching and individualised feedback to help you achieve your personal whitewater goals!
Day 1 - Arrival day- We'll meet you at the accommodation and let you check in to you're room and meet the rest of the folk on the course. We'll soak up the sunshine and stunning vistas whilst we chat through
you're expectations and needs for the course. That evening we'll head out for possibly the best pizza you'll have ever had!
Days 2-7 After breakfast we'll head to the river! In Valsesia we are utterly spoiled for choice for places to take you. Coaches will make a decision based on current conditions and group needs in the morning, before jetting you off to the whitewater heart of your Italian adventure. Get ready to tackle beautiful drops, awe-inspiring slides, and wave-train rapids that will have you grinning ear to ear!
When we get back we can analyse any pictures we might have taken during the time on the water, while getting ready for dinner. Food will be done on a self-catering basis, so we will either eat out, or buy in food to cook at the accommodation as a team. We'll all get involved to ensure we keep each other well fed for the week.
Day 7 - Time to say our goodbyes! looking forward to next time.
