It is a funny and exciting group sport. It is based on the descent of the river on rafts fit for 6/7 people plus the Guide.

Everybody who can swim can experience the emotion of the river descent. Before boarding the instructor gives information about the basic maneuvers and safety measures. A first lesson is given ashore followed by a second one in still water, so that every participant can face the descent in safety.

Our Center provides all necessary outfit and technical equipment.

Monrosa Centre is approved by F.I.Raft. and only qualified instructors operate in the Center.

The ideal season to practice rafting is from April to September: thanks to the technical outfit (wetsuit, water jacket, life jacket, helmet) a thermal protection is always ensured. Sometimes it is even more fun when it rains!

N.B. The choice of the itinerary depends on the water level.


The time required for every itinerary is about 4 hours: including registration, dressing up, theoretical lesson ashore, trials in water and transport on mini-buses.
