In the Gorges of the Sesia (Valsesia, Piedmont valley), the river is found to pass in a granite bed only a few meters wide. In these gorges, famous for their undisputed natural beauty, the current creates extraordinary water games and the sun, filtering through the walls, enhances its spectacularity.
It is precisely here that the geological border between the European and the African continents passes. It is a path practiced when, in the classic stretch, there is not enough water to go down. In fact, when the Sesia has a water level that covers the "classic" section, the Gorges become, due to their conformation, impractical. Boarding is located near an old Roman bridge.
A guide that will instruct you on the techniques of conducting the hydrospeed, will descend together with you, guaranteeing you good fun in perfect safety. It is a path suitable for everyone, even those in their first experience.
