Il Girasole in collaboration with Rafting Umbria organises guided descents
along the Corno River.An exciting activity for all which doesn’t
require any particular skills or certificates to partake in the activity
in complete safety. The rafts are inflatables built especially to resist
the power of the river, reinforced and divided into seperate air chamber.
The rafts normally carry 6 (min. 2 max. 7 ) "passengers" and
The Corno River divides into two courses of the same length, which can
be followed in around 2 hours (7 km), with maximum security also for
the most inexperienced. The first tranquil and fascinating course takes
across the ‘Gola di Biselli’, where we stop to swim and
drink water from a natural spring in the rocks.
