The course is taught by FICK instructors of the Gruppo Canoe Terni and is structured in 5 lessons lasting approximately 3 hours each.
The activity is aimed at both children (aged 9 years and older) and adults. The first two lessons will be carried out in still water where the correct set-up in the kayak will be acquired, with the learning of the basic maneuvers for the management of the boat and the first theoretical-practical notions for tackling the activity in safety.
In the second phase, the students will learn the techniques for carrying out the activity in rough water, and then face the first descents of the Nera river in the stretch from Ferentillo to Arrone, always followed by the instructor.
The equipment to carry out the course (canoe, paddle, wetsuit, jacket helmet, shoes and splash guards) will be provided directly by the Gruppo Canoe Terni.
The learner will simply have to wear a costume, a t-shirt and a great desire to have fun learning a fantastic discipline, but the fundamental requirement to be able to participate in the course is to know how to swim.
is an extremely dynamic natural environment that offers the possibility, especially for young people, to develop various educational objectives: sports practice, environmental culture, socialization, self-esteem and respect for others, spirit of adventure and autonomy.
Beyond that, the fundamental element that most enhances this sport is undoubtedly the ecological one: the canoe, in fact, allows you to immerse yourself in a suggestive nature that enchants and which always requires the utmost respect, but it is only one of the many activities to be carried out in Valnerina.
